Aston Martin Hypercar. Three Words to Thrill

Another day, another hypercar.  But this one comes with the greatest pedigree of all – it’s an Aston Martin hypercar.

With plans to launch at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, Aston Martin is set to unleash the Valkyrie on an unsuspecting world.  It is a thing of great beauty and we like the name: a nod, perhaps, to the Wagner’s classic in Apocalypse Now, with the Valkyries being the fear-inducing, all-conquering blast of impending doom?

Or perhaps an adoption of Odin’s maidens’ role in taking you to Norsk heaven?

Either way, we like it. And here’s what you can expect: 0-60mph in under 2.5 seconds; an almighty, naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine; a thrilling 1160bhp.  That’s the Aston Martin Valkyrie for you.

Are you impressed?
