The two Aston Martin hypercars Valkyrie and Valhalla have taken flight at the brand’s test facility in Silverstone. The Valhalla is driven for the first time since conceptualization and has made its North American debut at Monterey Car Week last weekend. The Valkyrie previously made debut at the F1 British Grand Prix, driven by Aston Martin’s official tester Chris Goodwin.
The Aston Valhalla was showcased alongside the Valkyrie in Monterey. Both ground-breaking models were born from Aston Martin’s collaboration with Red Bull Advanced Technologies. The Valkyrie delivered its stunning debut during the F1 British Grand Prix in mid-July, in front of thousands of gazing eyes. The Valhalla, the closely related sibling, has until now been solely shown in static guise after wowing the crowds upon its unveiling at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.
Aston Martin Valkyrie put through the paces at F1 British GP
The Aston Martin Valkyrie driven by Goodwin during the British GP has over 1,160 bhp. It’s a hypercar created by the joint venture effort of Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing after years of trials., Aston Martin Valkyrie is slated to be a future competitor in the WEC (World Endurance Championship).
Developed to make greater concessions to practicality and road use, Valhalla remains true to the uncompromising engineering ethos laid down by its bigger brother. Benefitting from genuine state-of-the-art F1 technology and unrivalled active aerodynamics utilizing variable morphing surfaces, Valhalla is set to deliver equally impressive levels of handling performance. Powered by a bespoke Aston Martin V6 twin-turbo engine, Aston Martin Valhalla will surpass figures shown in today’s hypercar world, underlining its own elite status.
Strictly limited to 500 coupes worldwide, the program remains oversubscribed as Aston Martin continues to handpick the final lucky customers who will have the opportunity to own this extraordinary machine.
In contrast, the sold-out Aston Martin Valkyrie’s testing program continues apace with the first customer delivery scheduled for later this year, when the model will claim its unrivalled position at the top of the automotive arena.
