 Aston Martin ‘Valkyrie’-Bespoke Aerodynamics, Exquisite Design, Breathtakingly Fast and Drop Dead Stunning.

  This is what you get when famous Formula One designer Adrian Newey designs a roadcar.

Popular for designing one of the most successful F1 beasts and serving as the current Designer for F1 Team Red Bull, Adrian Newey seems to be fulfilling his long pending desire of creating a road legal ‘ Sports Car’ by giving us Aston Martin Valkyrie.

With this champion on the block, Newey seems to have lent a new sense of design to Hypercars.

Valkyrie, originally named Aston Martin RB-001, comes with a 6.5 l V12 Naturally Aspirated Coswarth engine, which, when combined with Hybrid Battery System, will churn out power in mighty figures of 900HP. And to put this force on to tarmac, Aston Martin has partnered with Michelin to get the right set of rubber.

The French tyre maker, with a vast experience of competitive racing including F1, Le Mans, Moto Gp etc, has decided to Shod Valkyrie with its flagship racing tyre- Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2. The tyres are not only said to improve dry and wet lap time by around 1.6 seconds, but they also provide 50% extra tread life as compared to its competition.

Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 has been developed in close association with Mercedes AMG SLS Coupe Black series, Porsche 918 Spyder, Porsche 911 GT3 and Ferrari 458 Speciale.

The tyre makes use of dual rubber compound- endurance racing compound on outer side and rigid elastomer on the inner side. This helps in ensuring superior cornering capabilities along with long tread life.

  1. Improved dry and wet Lap times

  2. 50% longer tread life as compared to Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tyre

  3. 20% deeper tread depth

  4. Improved Braking

  5. Improved handling

Aston Martin Valkyrie is expected to hit the roads in 2019 but the company has already sold all its 150 models at an average price of 2million GBP for each vehicle.
