Hypercars are a rare breed of sports cars. Being such a rare breed, most hypercars would never see the light of day — remaining just concepts. Of course, certain hybrid cars will definitely make it past that stage and into production. That stands true with the Aston Martin Valkyrie Hypercar, the British luxury automakers latest hypercar created in collaboration with Red Bull Racing.
On the outside, the Valkyrie is wrapped in a blue-to-black gradient paint job, a similar colour scheme to what Bugatti went for with the Divo. The Valkyrie also brought forth certain design aspects from its conceptual days with a few subtle changes. Its front splitter and side skirts now sport a more complex shape while its roof scoop features a larger indent than its predecessor.
The interior of the Valkyrie cements its place as a hypercar with a full-on carbon fibre trim. This allows it to shed some of its excessive weight while still looking sporty and aggressive from all corners. Its cabin will also resemble that of an F1 car with the driver seated in a “feet-up” position.
Potential buyers will also have to go through a complete 3D body scan to ensure its seats are a perfect fit. This is due to Aston Martin’s desire to ensure each and every seat is tailored to the driver to ensure maximum comfort. Even its steering wheel resembles an F1 car with plenty of buttons and knobs as well as a display screen.
However, the main attraction of the Aston Martin Valkyrie Hypercar is what sits within it. Known as the fastest street-legal car, it stands at 1,130hp thanks to the Cosworth-built 6.5-litre V12 is slated to be the fastest street-legal hypercar to date. It is also very much different from any hybrid system with the inclusion of an electric motor while still being torque-enhanced.
There are only 175 examples of the Aston Martin Valkyrie Hypercar, all of which are already spoken for. It’s price tag? — a cool US$3 million without breaking a sweat.
