Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar enters full production
Aston Martin’s Valkyrie hypercar has entered full production and the first customer car is now complete. Described by the British car manufacturer as ‘the first true F1® car for the road’, customer deliveries are set to commence in the coming weeks.
Like all Aston Martin sports cars, Valkyrie is being built at the marque’s headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire.
A dedicated project delivery team manages the build right through to delivery in a specially commissioned Valkyrie production area. A team of highly skilled technicians are hand building each of the 150 cars, with each Valkyrie taking over 2,000 hours to create.
Aston Martin chief executive officer, Tobias Moers, said: “It is an immensely proud moment for us to complete our first ever hypercar. The Aston Martin Valkyrie programme has tested everyone who has worked on it to the limit but the commitment to the dream has produced a truly incredible car, an F1® car for the road.
“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. I’m sure our customers will be delighted with what they have achieved.”
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.
Boasting a hybrid V12 powertrain developing a maximum power of 1,155PS, the Aston Martin Valkyrie incorporates concepts and technologies taken directly from Formula One® and aims to be the era defining hypercar.
