The first customers will soon receive their game-changing Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercars. The ultra-luxury British car manufacturer announced today that the highly anticipated Valkyrie coupe has entered full production and the first customer car is now complete, with deliveries planned in the coming weeks.

Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer, Tobias Moers commented: “It is an immensely proud moment for us to complete our first ever hypercar. The Aston Martin Valkyrie programme has tested everyone who has worked on it to the limit but the commitment to the dream has produced a truly incredible car, an F1 car for the road. The Valkyrie is born out of the steadfast dedication of a large group of highly skilled engineers and technicians who have worked tirelessly to get Valkyrie to the production stage. I’m sure our customers will be delighted with what they have achieved.”

Like all Aston Martin sports cars, Valkyrie is being built at the marque’s UK Headquarters in Gaydon. A dedicated project delivery team manages the build right through to delivery in a specially commissioned Valkyrie production area. A team of highly skilled technicians are hand-building each of the 150 cars, with each Valkyrie taking over 2000 man-hours to create.

Before each Valkyrie is delivered, it is track-tested at the Aston Martin high performance facility at the home of British Motor Racing, Silverstone where much of the development of the hypercar has taken place.

Boasting a hybrid V12 powertrain developing a maximum power of 1,155PS, the Aston Martin Valkyrie incorporates concepts and technologies taken directly from Formula One and is set to be the era defining hypercar, says Aston Martin.

How on earth to start this? I've been car/bike/truck crazy since I was a teen. Like John, I had the obligatory Countach poster on the wall. I guess I'm more officially into classic and muscle cars than anything else - I currently have a '65 Sunbeam Tiger that left the factory the same day as I left the hospital as a newborn with my mother. How could I not buy that car? In 2016 my wife and I drove across the USA in a brand-new Dodge Challenger, and then shipped it home. You can read more on www.usa2nz.co.nz. We did this again in 2019 in a 1990 Chev Corvette - you can read about that trip on DriveLife. I'm also an Observer for the Institute of Advanced Motorists - trying to do my bit to make our roads safer.
