New Official Photos Reveal More Of Aston Martin Valkyrie, Including The Cockpit

To say that the Valkyrie hypercar is the most anticipated model from Aston Martin in recent history would be a major understatement.

People are longing to see more of Aston Martin and Red Bull’s hypercar, and the two companies know that all too well. Meanwhile, the British carmaker is using the hype created by the upcoming Valkyrie to boost its social media channels.

For example, Aston Martin’s Instagram page is the only place where one can find three new photos of the Valkyrie hypercar. They reveal a two-tone paint scheme combining two contrasting tones of blue. More importantly, one of the photos offers our best look so far at the Valkyrie’s interior.

As you would expect, the cockpit is a symphony of carbon fiber, Alcantara, and racing-inspired technology. Just look at that F1-like steering wheel that integrates all the controls the driver needs to worry about. It also features a display showing ground speed, engine speed, and more parameters.

There are two more screens in the cabin, one at the center of the dash and another on the passenger side — both oriented towards the driver. Formula One “touches” are obvious as far as the driving position is concerned too. Aston Martin says the Valkyrie features a “feet up” position that ensures the driver “feels at one with the car for the ultimate drive experience.”

We have no reason not to take Aston Martin’s word for it, as the Valkyrie will combine Formula One aerodynamics and lightweight construction with the world’s most powerful naturally aspirated powertrain ever offered in a production car. That’s a Cosworth-engineered 6.5-liter V12 unit delivering 1,130 hp (1,146 PS).

The power plant is expected to produce the impressive output with assistance from a Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) developed by Rimac. Combine that with the targeted 1:1 power-to-weight ratio and the Valkyrie will be capable of “outlandish speed,” as Aston Martin claims.

The company hopes to put prototypes on the road just before Christmas this year. Only 150 units will be built, each priced at $3.2 million. Unsurprisingly, the entire production run has already been sold.

    An absolutely stunning car, in a shoot-out that hides half of its glory.
    Please understand that a car with a degarding colour scheme, should never be put against a black background in order to shoot it.
    What you managed – the person who took those pictures – is that you showed us half of the car.
    Therefore I’m inclined to believe that those were the instructions by Aston Martin – it’s not an informational shoot-out, but a hype-creating marketing tool. Stil, surprise – surprise, Aston Martin and the Valkyrie do not need any more hype!!!
    Unless they are going to sell that car more than USD 2.3 mil.

      Are you a product photography expert or something? I am honestly asking without a tone of sarcasm.

      • Mark Hawthorne

        Degarding? What is that? It’s certainly not an English word

        • alex.remsen

          he meant “degrading”, I’m sure of it

          • Mark Hawthorne

            Still makes no sense though. A fade paint treatment perhaps but it’s not degraded or degraded

      • Pelopidas Georgiadis

        No, not a photography expert, a marketing expert and honestly a tired individual of the recent trent of – how my friend INFINITE1 put it? – of “… showing but not really.
        Thank you for asking.

    • Infinite1

      That’s the point, is to “show” us the car but not really.

  • tkindred

    Looks really good!

  • Infinite1

    I say at least 1

  • Mark Hawthorne

    Cleverly avoiding the duck-bill front and without the ridiculous disk wheels that were shown on the styling model and have been so criticised on the front wheels of the SpeedTail.

  • Sean Sweeney
    • Eric

      Not bad – the 14″ wheels are unfortunate, however.

      • Ryan R Miller

        Those are 18″.

    “There are two more screens in the cabin, one at the center of the dash and another on the passenger side — both oriented towards the driver.”

    Actually there are THREE screens. The center one is for the infotainment/controls. If you look at the left side of the image, you can see part of the third screen. That one and the one on the passenger side are for the exterior rear view cameras, since there are no conventional mirrors.

  • Honda NSX-R

    Another example of a production car that looks better than its concept version. Also, that paint scheme is awesome.

  • MarketAndChurch

    looks interesting, but i’m not yet impressed

  • SteersUright

    Is the front track wider than the rear?

  • Blade t

    Is this even going to be street legal in the USA ?

  • Bob

    Too bad the AMR Pro’s headlights didn’t make it onto this. Whatever though, I love this thing and I do prefer it to Merc’s ONE. Are those cornering lights behind the front wheels?

    Those headlights remind me of something in Le Mans as well but I just can’t put my finger on it.
