announced last week that the Valkyrie hypercar has entered full production and the first customer car is now complete, with deliveries set to begin in the coming weeks.
Tobias Moers, Aston Martin CEO, said: “It is an immensely proud moment for us to complete our first ever hypercar. The Aston Martin Valkyrie programme has tested everyone who has worked on it to the limit but the commitment to the dream has produced a truly incredible car, an F1 car for the road.
“The Valkyrie is born out of the steadfast dedication of a large group of highly skilled engineers and technicians who have worked tirelessly to get Valkyrie to the production stage. I am sure our customers will be delighted with what they have achieved.”
Like all Aston Martin sports cars, Valkyrie is being built at the marque’s UK headquarters in Gaydon. A dedicated project delivery team manages the build right through to delivery in a specially commissioned Valkyrie production area. Each of the 150 Valkyrie coupes is being hand-built with each car taking over 2,000 man hours to create.
Before each Valkyrie is delivered, it is track-tested at the Aston Martin high-performance facility at the home of British Motor Racing, Silverstone where much of the development of the hypercar has taken place.
Boasting a hybrid V12 powertrain developing a maximum power of 1,155PS, the Aston Martin Valkyrie incorporates concepts and technologies taken directly from F1 and is ‘set to be the era defining hypercar’.
