We now know that the Aston Martin Valkyrie is going to sound incredible. A few weeks ago, company Aston Andy Palmer posted a short sound clip of the Cosworth-built 6.3-litre V12, which was revealed to produce a noise akin to a 1990s F1 car.
But what about the looks? Up until now, the silver show cars we’ve seen in images and up close at motor shows have all looked bold and impressive, but beautiful? I’m not so sure.
That’s what makes this latest set of snaps particularly interesting. Daubed in an unusual two-tone dark/light blue paint finish, the livery of this particular Valkyrie hides some of the more extreme details, and the results are awfully pretty. And as much as we liked the madness of the aero wheels, we’re digging the new rims on this car too.
We’re also given a look at the especially snug cockpit, which features an F1-style reclined, “feet up” driving position for the full because racecar experience. Oh, and there’s a cheeky Red Bull Racing logo in one corner - present due to the team’s technical input on the project.
Aston Martin will only be making 150 road legal Valkyries, followed by a further track-only ‘AMR Pro’ examples. Just in case the ordinary one isn’t unhinged enough for you.
We can’t wait to see them in action.
