Ultimate Dream Cars: Aston Martin Valkyrie
Aston Martin’s at it again! Just when you thought cars couldn’t get any faster, the brand is here to make one of the world’s swiftest vehicles. To be exact, the manufacturer’s latest project aims for the world’s strongest naturally aspirated street-legal motor. That’s quite a statement considering all the fine cars you’ll find on the streets right now. But after taking a look at everything it has to offer, the Aston Martin Valkyrie will leave you with no doubts that it can become one of the world’s fastest cars upon release.
How Does the World’s Strongest Naturally Aspirated Motor Look?
Let’s kick this off right. You can’t mention the Aston Martin Valkyrie without mention of its super-powered motor. At the moment, we know this will be a 6.5-liter V12. But aside from that, Aston Martin’s been a bit shy about the details. However, engineering company Cosworth released a tweet that claimed the Valkyrie’s engine will produce 1,130 horsepower. The tweet has since been removed. But there’s no denying that’s a lot of power for a street-legal car!
At the moment, There’s not much more information about this incredible motor. And we’ve still got questions as to whether or not all that power will come partially from a kinetic recovery system. But one thing is for sure. This will be a fast car upon release!
Just looking at the Valkyrie, you’ll see a car that looks like nothing else this world has to offer. And part of that reason is this cool car is designed to be as lightweight as possible. So even the laser cut badge measures only 0.07 meters thick to cut weight here!
As far as other design choices go here, you’ll find quite a few interesting gaps and spaces on the Valkyrie. Much of the reasoning for this is to create air channels that allow clean air to effectively flow through this dream car to gain as much speed as possible.
Naturally, you’ll also find a copious amount of carbon fiber throughout this fast car. Everything from the wheels to the rear wing is decked out in the lightweight material. The end result is something that not only looks cool but also produces speeds that will dominate any racetrack.
Speaking of the racetracks, step inside the Valkyrie and you’ll get the ultimate race car experience. The wheel itself takes inspiration from that of an F1 car. Not only does it harbor a square design, but you’ll also find buttons for just about everything here. This includes driving modes, the recovery system, windshield wipers, and plenty more. The wheel is also where you’ll find your digital information display. And you’ll also find a full-sized information display on the passenger side of the car.
At the moment, Aston Martin is planning a 2019 release for the Valkyrie. And if you want one, you’d better act fast as the company only plans to release 150 of them. As far as price goes, there are rumors of a $3.2 million price tag. But there’s still no official word from Aston Martin about the MSRP yet.
The Aston Martin Valkyrie is a car that aims to produce speed and performance that rivals almost all race cars on the market today. Everything from its lightweight nature to its super-powered motor will surely make this one of the top cars of 2019. Plus, its ultra-cool design is sure to be remembered by car enthusiasts for years to come! But for now, we can only wait to see what else Aston Martin has up its sleeves for this dream car!
