Aston Martin Valkyrie unveiled at SilverstoneThe Aston Martin Valkyrie, a ground-breaking hyper-car, made its public debut in front of an enthusiastic crowd ahead of the recent 2019 British Grand Prix at Silverstone.

Driven by Aston Martin test driver Chris Goodwin, the 1,160bhp machine took to the world-famous Grand Prix circuit for its first public demonstration run. This followed months of digital modelling and simulation work by both Aston Martin and Red Bull engineers.

The Valkyrie was created as a result of a technical and strategic collaboration between Aston Martin, Red Bull Advanced Technologies and project partner AF Racing.

Mr Goodwin said: “I’ve driven this car around Silverstone for countless hours on the simulator at Aston Martin Red Bull Racing’s headquarters, but to drive it at Silverstone feels exceptionally special. Of course, we still have a lot of development work to go, but we can now begin to really push the physical testing process and realise
the capabilities of what we have developed over the past months.”

Andy Palmer, Aston Martin Lagonda president and group CEO said (www.astonmartinlagonda.com),: “Today is a real milestone — not only in Aston Martin’s history but for our industry as a whole. The Aston Martin Valkyrie continues to redefine what you and I recognise as a hyper-car, possessing unrivalled levels of performance in a package that is technologically beyond anything else.

"While Chris’s demonstration today was not delivered at full speed, there is no doubt in my mind that we will one day return to deliver its full potential around this magnificent circuit.”
