    Re: Valkyrie final design?

    Your comments about vehicle servicing were very interesting as well.  I have no idea where USA owners get their Paganis, Koenigseggs, and SCGs serviced now.  Can you just take a Pagani to an MB dealer since it has an AMG Powertrain ?  Will an owner be able to have a Valkyrie serviced at a typical AM dealer ?  This issue definitely adds a complex dimension to ownership far beyond that of a Ferrari or Porsche.

    I am quite sure that AM will have a solution for this problem,... and I am also sure that those cars will not be driving that much (unfortunately). Buyers of such cars usually have already quite full garages with the best of the best. 

    Considering the price of admission to this ride and that (including the AMR Pro version) they're only building 175 units, I wouldn't expect Aston to do anything other than establishing a few service points in each continent and transporting the cars there when they need to. Not worth upsetting the operations of a complete dealer  network for such a small fraction of the service business. And most owners of these cars will seldom drive them, sadly.

    This is exactly what I was meaning, a solution... in that case transporting the car to the nearest trained dealer...

    I doubt Aston has given any thought as to how the Valkyrie will be serviced.  At this point, they are still struggling to get the road car to work and its no where near being production ready.

    They aren't, @lmm23design is a rendering and automotive design page. They render their own artistic impressions and versions of cars. @muc.collector probably just posted this to generate traction and controversy on his post. Good or bad, the more interaction he gets on social media, the more money comes his way.

    Re: Valkyrie final design?

    I expect this car will spend more time in service than on the road. Also, no doubt special arrangements will have to be made to get it serviced. In short, this car will be a huge headache.

    Mostly a static display in a *ick swinging contest.  I’m okay with that.

    It's doubtful that this is a potential owner's only car.  Therefore, any issues become someone else's headache.

    This car is something else.... everything about this car is extreme... love it. Now this is a proper hypercar!!! Love all features about that thing, the aero, the high revving engine, the looks and also the seating position. But I must admit that in some videos it doesn't seem to be very easy to drive.... but it cant be the lack of downforce or grip I guess... Smiley

    Probably the extreme power and torque to weight (a little over 1,000kg) ratio with only RWD and no lag.  And the TC/Stability systems rarely work well (if at all) on a prototype

    There are sporstcars, there are supercars, there are hypercars, and then there is the Valkyrie... the engine, the cockpit, the aero, the chasis, the concept... this car is on another level to anything else.
