The Aston Martin Valkyrie is the hypercar of the decade with mastermind Adrian Newey behind the design and Cosworth behind the powertrain. It surely can’t get any better than a 1,160bhp hybrid hypercar.
Actually, it can. And this is exactly where it happens: on the track. Andy Palmer, Aston Martin CEO recently posted this clip to his Twitter page.

It may only be a short clip, but it perfectly demonstrates the 10,500rpm of the Cosworth-tuned V12 with the tone reminiscent of the Formula 1 beginnings it came from. This is the first time we’ve heard the British hypercar under full load, and sporting a red and black livery like its Red Bull Formula 1 cousins, it looks the part just as well as it sounds the part.
150 units will be built, plus another 25 AMR Pro track-only editions. We can’t wait!
