Around this time last year, car manufacturer Aston Martin first revealed the Valkyrie hypercar to a global audience who would surely never set foot inside of the mythical beast. Over the past year, however, Aston Martin has been hard at work with project partners AF Racing and Red Bull Advanced Technologies to further develop the Valkyrie’s design into a street legal supercar. Their efforts proved to be a success.
Most of the hard work went into the Valkyrie’s exterior styling, aerodynamics, and its cockpit design. A minimalist approach was taken when designing the car’s exterior. Oversized, full-length Venturi tunnels run either side of the cockpit floor and draw large quantities of air into the car’s rear diffuser — generating huge amounts of downforce without the use of unsightly spoilers.
Other notable features include a feet-up riding position similar to Formula One race cars, a detachable steering wheel integrated with every bit of switchgear to minimize distractions while driving, and exposed anodized aluminum headlamp frames that are 30-40 per cent lighter than the lightest series production headlamps available to Aston Martin.
