The new hypercar Aston Martin Valkyrie 2018-2019 created by Aston Martin, Red Bull, advanced technology and AF racing is almost completely ready for series production and is pre-opened for you to explore. In our review, detailed information about the Valkyrie Aston Martin – photos and videos, price and equipment, technical specifications and a unique British sports car with technologies that came to the Royal Formula 1 races. The price of an Aston Martin Valkyrie powered by Cosworth’s 6.5-litre V12 petrol engine with a mild hybrid battery system (similar to the KERS boost system used on Formula 1 cars) and a 7-speed Ricardo robotic transmission is between £2 million (over £157! !! million conventional units). Interesting,
The prototype of the new British hypercar first appeared in public in August 2016 and was called Aston Martin-AM-001 RB. In the spring of 2017, at the Geneva Motor Show, a new British hypercar appeared before the visitors of the exhibition with the original name Valkyrie. It’s a shame, but in Geneva, Aston Martin only allowed to appreciate the phenomenally stylish body of the product with unique aerodynamic chips, which migrated to a car capable of moving on ordinary roads from Formula 1 cars.
It was not possible to evaluate the interior of the Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar, but a few months later, Aston Martin and Red Bull advanced technologies and announced that they were ready to show all the information about the product, show the interior and talk about the technical stuffing.
It should be noted that the body of the new Aston Martin Valkyrie is completely untypical, even for the most modern sports cars and supercars. We have a real racing car flown off the Formula One championship circuit or a Le Mans prototype on public roads.
Available fully made of carbon fiber bodywork with unusual car aerodynamic elements from Mutimatic. The exterior of the new British hyper car with a fantastic body placed around the perimeter of the wheel, covered with domes, arches, a neat dome over a double cabin, which could be entered through the doors of the "gull wings". Under the body of the car there is a ‘Venturi Tunnels’ wind tunnel, which ensures the correct distribution of air flow and good downforce when driving at high speed.
According to preliminary information, the curb weight of the Aston Martin Valkyrie will be up to 900 kg.
In the presence of a gasoline 6.5-liter V12 Cosworth engine with a capacity of 830 horsepower and an electric motor, the total power will be 900 horses. Thus, the hyper-car will boast an excellent ratio of power unit to mass unit of 1 hp per 1 kg.
The dynamic and speed characteristics declared by the manufacturer are impressive: from 0 to 322 km / h in 10.0 seconds, the maximum speed is over 400 miles per hour.
In the technique of the new Aston Valkyrie Martin, in addition to a gasoline engine from Cosworth, on a moderate hybrid plant from Rimac, an automatic transmission developed by Ricardo specialists, apply a brake system from Alcon and surface conversions and lighting electronics from Bosch Wipac. Tire supplier for the unique hypercar selected by Michelin Pilot Sport 2 cup tires 265/35 ZR20 front and 325/30 ZR21 rear.
The double cab sports Valkyrie coupe is, on the one hand, simple, with a minimum set of necessary equipment and bucket seats with 4-point seat belts.
But on the other hand, there is high-quality carbon fiber and leather, an additional removable steering wheel with a color display, buttons and switches, a color touch screen multimedia system and several color screens responsible for the image of the rear-view camera (instead of traditional rear-view mirrors).
The interior looks very stylish and modern, but that’s just to get into the cabin to get the driver and passenger in good physical condition. In the cockpit of the Aston Martin Valkyrie, you literally have to squeeze through narrow, high doors.
