First Aston Martin Valkyrie Hypercar Completed

Technicians are hand-building 150 cars, with each Valkyrie taking more than 2000 hours to create.

Aston Martin said today today that the Valkyrie coupe has finally entered full production. The first customer car is now complete, with deliveries planned in the coming weeks. Only 150 of the oft-hyped Valkyrie Hypercar are scheduled to built at ~£2.5 million each. How many owners of what is essentially a Formula One race car with a sports car wrapper will use them on a track is unknown. Many, no doubt, like the McLaren F1 hyper car will be put in storage awaiting unknowable appreciation before they change hands again. (Aston Martin Valkyrie: Formula One Drivers Get First Laps)

Before each Valkyrie is delivered, it is track-tested at the Aston Martin high performance facility at Silverstone where much of the development of the hypercar has taken place. The hybrid V12 powertrain provides a maximum power of 1,155PS, it’s claimed. The electric boost from the hybrid is 160 horsepower and 207 lb. ft. of torque.

“It is an immensely proud moment for us to complete our first ever hypercar,” said Tobias Moers, Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer. The Valkyrie is born out of the steadfast dedication of a large group of highly skilled engineers and technicians who have worked tirelessly to get Valkyrie to the production stage.”

Like all Aston Martin sports cars, Valkyrie is built at the marque’s UK Headquarters in Gaydon. A dedicated project delivery team manages the process through to delivery in a Valkyrie production area. Technicians are hand-building each of the150 cars, with each Valkyrie taking more than 2000 hours to create.
