The much anticipated Aston Martin Valkyrie made its first public track appearance yesterday at Silverstone ahead of the 2019 British Grand Prix. Aston Martin High-Performance Test Driver, Chris Goodwin, piloted the 1,160-horsepower Hypercar around the Grand Prix circuit for a one lap demonstration.
The Aston Martin Valkyrie is the result of a technical collaboration of Aston Martin, Red Bull Advanced Technologies. The collaboration included months of digital modeling and simulation work between the two organizations. The Valkyrie will serve as the platform for Aston Martin’s future FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) Hypercar challenger.
Aston Martin will build 150 road versions of the Valkyries as per the WEC homologation rules, all of which are already sold. First deliveries will occur to customers in Q4 of 2019.
