The Aston Martin Valkyrie is a hypercar which sticks true to the claim with such a futuristic interior that was revealed in a couple of newly released pictures.
The incredible car is expected to set a new benchmark for speed and performance.
When it comes to hypercars, the powertrain has a huge role to play and the same goes for the upcoming Valkyrie. Under the bonnet, the vehicle is powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine built by Cosworth. It is further boosted by the addition of a Formula One hybrid assist system which automatically adjusts the engine to keep rendering the maximum power under demanding conditions.
In the latest set of pictures that dropped in, it is evident that the car has a very low ground clearance. The idea is to create a Formula One inspired car but make it legal to be driven on the road while delivering as much power as possible. Going by the looks of it, the engineers have possibly achieved what they set out to. Aston Martin’s top engineers also partnered with Red Bull to acquire the components their advanced technologies department created.
On the exterior, the Valkyrie features Venturi tunnels including brand new openings allowing the heat to be vented out. These holes are created on the wheelarches and the cockpit which according to the designers also contribute a major share to increase downforce. The exterior design director Miles Nurnberger confirmed that they are almost 95% done with the car and it should be showcased to the public real soon.
The interiors of the hyper car had been designed in such a way that it doesn’t collide with the exterior design. The seats make the passenger sit in a reclined feet up position, the way many Formula One racers sit in their cars but it may sound very tough for the average person to be positioned that way. The cockpit and the dashboard of the car is extremely minimalistic while resembling the Formula One cars once again.
It might surprise the buyer but you can actually remove the steering wheel as you would do in a Le Mans car or any F1 car for that matter. A lot of manual buttons and switches with a range of driving modes to choose from. A screen is there but it is mounted on the steering wheel allowing very little space but it does gets the job done.
