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?
