One of only 150 examples ever to be produced and the first physical car to be offered for sale.
The Aston Martin Valkyrie takes its name after the Norse mythological figure, it is also known by its code-names; AM-RB 001 (‘AM’ stands for Aston Martin, and ‘RB’ stands for Red Bull) and Nebula (an acronym for Newey, Red Bull and Aston Martin). It is a limited edition hybrid sports car collaboratively built by British automobile manufacturers Aston Martin, Red Bull Racing Advanced Technologies and Cosworth.
Together they have succeeded in developing and delivering a true hypercar, powered by a mid-engine 6.5 litre naturally aspirated V12 combined with an electric motor for instant torque, the Valkyrie produces a total output of 1140 bhp, 1,000 of which comes from the V12 alone. Even more impressive is the fact the car only weighs some 1,030kg and doesn’t have one single steel component within its structure; attributes that are more familiar in an LMP1 or Formula One car but at the same time somehow making it road legal. Conceived and designed by legendary F1 engineer Adrian Newey, the Valkyrie simply oozes celerity and could easily be confused with a rolling art sculpture.
Its exterior is extremely aerodynamic with an extensively open underfloor that works on the principle of the Venturi effect, it is capable of producing 1,814kg (4,000 lb) of downforce at high speed. Gaps on top of the car (for example, above the front axle and the roof intake) and a large front splitter aid in generating downforce. The wheels are also designed to manage the airflow and are as light as possible at the same time. The interior has no gauge cluster, but rather a collection of screens. By the left and right corners are the screens for the camera side mirrors. One screen sits at the top of the centre console. A screen is used on the race-inspired removable steering wheel and acts as the driver gauge cluster. Dials and switches sit beside the wheel screen to allow for easier changes without driving interruption. The carbon fibre seats are bucket variants and the first owner is given the choice of both race and conventional seat belts for each seat.
This particular example has a whole host of factory optional extras which include; roof and engine cover in Gloss Carbon Fibre, Valkyrie graphics pack, exterior paint in the iconic Aston Martin British Racing Green, Matt black Magnesium performance wheels, Silver Argento satin wheel centres, black brake calipers, interior hardware in Twill Carbon, lower environment in exposed Carbon Fibre plus passenger tub back large squab cushion. In addition, the car was specified with graphic colour in Silver Argento, Clam Vanes in graphic colour, graphic colour roof strake, upper suspension shroud in graphic colour, Aston Martin Lagonda wings badge ultra-fine stainless steel, headlamp scoop in Satin track Carbon Fibre, exhaust tailpipes and muffler in Silver Zircotec, engine plenum in gloss track Carbon Fibre, drivers tub back large with squab cushion, upper IP in pure black plain Alcantara, seat pad colour in pure black, seat pad finish in plain Alcantara, seat pad stitch colour in Silver, Aston Martin Lagonda seat embroidery wings logo in Silver, 6-point seat harness in black, interior accent pack in black, armrest and door pocket in plain black, Alcantara steering wheel toggle switches in Silver, anodised steering wheel rim in pure black, steering wheel and 29 degree seat brackets.
