Aston Martin‘s F1-inspired hypercar production is in full swing at the company’s Gayden headquarters. The first customer car is already complete and is expected to be delivered to a lucky customer soon. More production examples of the Aston Martin Valkyrie are expected 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.”
Each Aston Martin Valkyrie is hand built at their headquarters in the UK in a specially commissioned Valkyrie production area. Aston Martin’s team of highly skilled mechanics are building 150 examples of the Valkyrie, with each one requiring over 2,000 man-hours to complete.
Prior to delivery every Valkyrie is tested on the race track at Aston Martin’s high performance facility, located at Silverstone – home of the British Grand Prix – which is also where a great deal of the car’s development occurred.
The Valkyrie’s hybrid V12 pulls technology directly from Aston Martin’s racing efforts. Images of the car show significant design cues were taken from Aston Martin’s race cars, in particular their Formula 1 efforts.
