Concerning that new line Aston Martin has started with 2018 Aston Martin Valkyrie, it seems that this manufacturer, known to fast and race cars had decided to make something closer to supercars. All details we saw by now said that they are about to make their first Formula 1 car, and that showed Bespoke One-77 in 2009, then AMR Pro and AMR Pro 001 in cooperation with Red Bull both made in 2017. Many things we saw on these cars before, mostly on AMR Pro 001, have proved that this popular British manufacturer has launched a new series.
Details we saw on the prototype are presented on 2018 Aston Martin Valkyrie, proving seriousness to achieve more speed with aerodynamics. That is the reason for making a car almost the same as Formula 1, with additions on bumpers and flat, lower roof. The manufacturer added two special tunnels below the bottom of the car, with opened front bumper to preserve more air below the car, stability and of course, more speed. Even though that was not that much necessarily, Aston Martin announced lighter front lights, chassis, and even a badge on the front nose. Massive spoiler on the top of the truck door, together with massive plastic additions provides stability and speed.
The inside of 2018 Aston Martin Valkyrie is all in shape of an egg, which is expected if we look the inside of the car. Made mostly of carbon-fiber the cabin is perfectly shaped for two, with visible dashboard and practical button layout. There are many gold and chromatic details, together with a square steering wheel with all needed commands and information incorporated in it. There are also three screens, where the bigger one is in the middle of the dashboard and includes important commands and buttons. The comfort is not questionable, but keep in mind that this is a sports car and comfort is not that important as on other types of the car.
Now, let say something about the most important information – engine strength. Being a supercar, 2018 Aston Martin Valkyrie simply has to be as fast as is possible. That is provided with a natural aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine powered with 1,130 horsepower. The speed of 60 mph achieves for 2.5 seconds and it will be paired with an electric motor.
2018 Aston Martin Valkyrie Release Date and Price
The manufacturer gave us all interesting information but the price of 2018 Aston Martine Valkyrie. Knowing that they said that only 99-150 models will be made, we expect a high price, perhaps higher than $2.3 million which is the price of the last model, Vulcan.
