    Saga of the Aston Martin Valkyrie

    Just posted an article on the story of the Aston Martin Valkyrie from the initial idea to the 1st delivery:

    Comments?

    Any surprises?


    Re: Saga of the Aston Martin Valkyrie

    Thanks for the update, very well written as always. Someday someone will write a script for an adaptation of this mess titled "Ride of the Valkyries", and with the right casting it could be a great movie indecision


    Re: Saga of the Aston Martin Valkyrie

    I've just read that Valkyrie owners will need to wear Noise Cancelling Headphones while driving the car as the cabin noise will reach 126 decibels.  I'm not really sure of the purpose of this car.  Obviously not a road car and likely too loud for 99% of track days.

    Correct on the cabin noise, it will not be comfortable without headphones.

    Very interesting thanks for the write up! Reading this saga it understandable were the delays of the Valkyrie are coming from. I assume there are less political or money issues at AMG and still they have problems developing the AMG One. I really hope Gordon Murray can get his car finished for deliveries. If you see the financials behind the Valkyrie is assume the T.50 will not be much different in terms of cost for tub and engine. I really wonder how Gordon Murray is financing in endeavor.

    I believe the issues on the Valkyrie and Project One are completely opposite.  On the Project One, its the engine that's the issue, on the Valkyrie, its everything else except the engine.


    Re: Saga of the Aston Martin Valkyrie

    Sort of odd to go after one of your biggest dealers and the people partly behind the idea of the Valkyrie. 


    Re: Saga of the Aston Martin Valkyrie

    Interesting article BTW, thank you


    Re: Saga of the Aston Martin Valkyrie

    126 DB goes well beyond the issue of comfort and into the realm of permanent hearing damage.

    Shame Newey did not move to Ferrari.


    Re: Saga of the Aston Martin Valkyrie

    Its certainly not a date night car.


    Re: Saga of the Aston Martin Valkyrie

    A few shots that were published today on Instagram. Apparently the track version has been “testing” in Bahrain. I assume it’s probably a lot of dressing up to keep interest from falling, still good to see the car.
