Aston Martin Valkyrie, here is the Spider version

Cars News

Probably Bruce Wayne, aka Batman, would like one too, maybe black. Yes, because the new Aston Martin Valkyrie Spider could easily look like the new Batmobile or, perhaps, a UFO on four wheels. More modestly, however, it is “satisfied” with being one of the most extreme hypercars in the world, designed to offer a driving experience similar to that of a Formula 1 single-seater.

It is no coincidence that Red Bull Advanced Technologies (RBAT) is also involved in the project, sponsored by engineer Adrian Newey. 85 Valkyrie Spider models will be built and the “assignment” to lucky customers will begin shortly; the first deliveries are scheduled for the second half of 2022.

An incredible heart beats under the carbon skin of the car: a hybrid V12 with 1155 hp of maximum power. “The secret of the Valkyrie Spider’s record-breaking performance lies in its ultralight construction and aerodynamic package that offers optimal downforce,” they say from the parent company. And we must absolutely take them at their word, judging by the data declared relating to the vertical load: 1,400 kg of downforce at 240km / h in “track” mode. Being able to reach a maximum speed of 330 km / h + with the cockpit open (350 km / h + with the roof closed, consisting of a central panel of carbon fiber), it is also the Aston Martin uncovered homologated for the fastest and most extreme road. never built.

“The Aston Martin Valkyrie is the product of incredible innovations and technologies, but it is much more than that: it is above all an emotion,” said Tobias Moers, Aston Martin CEO in an official statement: “With the Valkyrie Spider, that passion and that emotion will reach levels never reached before. The driving experience promises to be truly sensational. I can’t wait to hear the roar of the 6.5-liter V12 engine at over 11,000 rpm with the cockpit open ”.

Red Bull Racing Technical Director Adrian Newey added: “From the very first moment of the Aston Martin Valkyrie project we have been driven by ambitious goals that far exceed those of any road car created to date, and the Valkyrie Spider. applies this same philosophy to an open hypercar ”.
