Aston Martin unveils the Valkyrie Hypercar

0.5 min read

Aston Martin and Red Bull Advanced Technologies first previewed this concept last summer, but have just released new images and say that it’s near-production.

The multi-million-dollar project – according to Aston Martin – will be able to do laps faster than a Formula One car, but it’s the design that is arguably more interesting.

The gullwing doors are a cool touch, while the interior is a minimal affair that will see the driver and passenger seated as they would in an F1 car. The removable steering wheel houses nearly all the controls and there’s a display on the dash for all your driving data.  

The two other displays on the left and right – shown below with Red Bull logos on them – are for the video feeds that have been installed in place of wing mirrors.

All 150 cars have already been pre-sold and although Aston Martin have not officially revealed the price those buyers paid, it’s belived the British car manufacturer received £3 million for each one.

Expect to see a few of them tearing it up in the Middle East sometime soon.
