Watch This On-Board and Walk-Around Video of the Aston Martin Valkyrie
A Wild Hypercar
Aston Martin has some seriously impressive cars but the new Valkyrie is one of the wildest out there. The vehicle is essentially a LMP2 race car with a number plate. The model takes all that Aston Martin knows about making a vehicle travel extremely fast and combines it into one impressive package. Recently, the YouTube channel Mr. JWW had a chance to get up close and personal with the car and give the world a wonderful look at the vehicle.
For reference, the Valkyrie features a massive 6.5-liter V12 engine that produces 1,176 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque. The Aston Martin team worked with legendary engine manufacturer Cosworth to make the car’s powertrain. Pair that with unparalleled aerodynamics for a road car and you have one of the most extreme vehicles of all time.
One of the things Mr. JWW points out is the tires on the car. The Michelin tires are what transmits the power to the road and allow the car to do all of the crazy things that the car can do. Mr. JWW talks extensively with Fraser Dunn, Chief Engineer, Aston Martin Special Projects about the car and the tires. It’s an interesting conversation you should check out below.
