What happens when you mix a space craft with a car?  You get the Aston Martin Valkyrie. Right now it’s a concept car that may be put into production in 2019 but this car looks amazing.  We’re going to take a closer look at the design and power this thing holds in it.

Recently, Aston Martin has been showing off the concept car, Valkyrie, in select worldwid events

Media Source

Though it’s still a concept car, Aston Martin assures customers that it will change but only slightly and that what they see now, is pretty much what they’re going to get in the final product

Media Source

This is a collaboration between Aston Martin and Red Bull and because of that, the code name for the car was AM-RB 001. AM standing for Aston Martin, RB standing for Red Bull and presumably 001 being this is their first work together.

Media Source

What this 001 means right now, no one knows but if they are naming it 001, it could mean they have other cars that will be worked on together and that’s very exciting.

Media Source

Not a lot of details have come out yet. The engine is being developed by Cosworth, which is packed full of British experts when it comes to engine design.

Media Source

Only 150 of these cars will be made, and that includes all prototypes.

Media Source

An additional 25 track only models will be made and they will be produced and will come with a different package specifically meant for racing.

Media Source

The price will be 3 million GBP ($3.9 Million USD) so you may have to crack open the piggy bank.

Media Source

You’re not going to find a lot of frills inside as this isn’t the car you take the family on vacation with. Cupholders will not come standard.

Media Source

The steering wheel does detach, however, to make getting in and out easier.

Media Source

Also on the steering wheel will be an LCD screen with all sort of pertinent information to the car such as the gear, speedometer, gas gauge, and battery charged levels. As well as any engine lights, engine temp, and oil pressure.

Media Source

The engine in question will be a V12, 1130 Horsepower monster. This is going to put it up there with the hypercars from Ferrari, Porsche, and McLaren.

Media Source

There was much to do about if this would be a V12 or a twin turbo V6 and the car almost died before conception because of it.

Media Source

Adrian Newey spoke about this: ““I did some homework and came to the conclusion that weight wise there’s wasn’t much between them, in terms of cooling requirements the V6 was worse, in terms of sound the V6 was worse and it would vibrate too much if you solid-mounted it to the chassis. Technically and emotionally the V12 was the better solution.”

Media Source

He continued: “Some at Aston liked the idea of a V12, but wanted to use a derivative of the One-77 engine, but it wouldn’t produce the power we needed. The other group said it should be a V6 twin-turbo. It almost broke the deal, because we said we wouldn’t do it unless it was a bespoke V12, made by Cosworth.”

Media Source

The body weight is going to be 1,030kg (2,271lb), which surpasses the 1:1 power-to-weight Ratio hyper cars shoot for, with 1,097hp per ton.

Media Source

The exhausts will be near the engine similar to F1 Cars and the Porsche 918 Spyder.

Media Source

Bosch supplies the Valkyrie’s ECU unit, traction control system, and ESP, and brakes and calipers are provided by Alcon and Surface Transforms

Media Source

It is said that the car will be able to produce 1,814 kg (4,000lb) of downforce without the aid of a rear wing. This is going to mean the car will stick to the road like glue.

Media Source

The great thing about the car is that it will be also be a hybrid with a Rimac-built KERS hybrid battery system.

Media Source

One interesting thing that happens with hypercars like this, is flipping for resale. Andy Palmer released a tweet on July 4th, 2017 stating “I doubt they have a slot, but if they do and we identify who flipped, they lose the car. If they flip, then they never get another special”.

Media Source

On the roof is a scoop that will allow air flowing over the car to be injected right back into the engine.

Media Source

When you release the gas pedal to stop acceleration, typically you have air “spill over” that won’t be going into the scoop. A design was made to channel that air over the wings of the car, which will create more downforce.
