    Re: Valkyrie final design?

    Check out TWO Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pros blast around Laguna Seca Raceway for the 2022 Hypercar Invitational. Nothing beats a NA V12 revving to 11,100RPM around the world famous Laguna Seca track in California!

     

     

     


    Re: Valkyrie final design?

    When people says the CGT sounds great, the Valkyrie is just that much better.

    Nothing except an NA V12 revving to 12,100 rpm with a Manual gearbox in the GMA T.50  Smiley

    BTW, Shmee said they were doing 1:19 laps and that it should be 5 seconds faster without a passenger and taking it easy.  Here are lap times for comparison:

    Seems like Newey is taking another stab at this concept with RB. The wording for the promo and even the line sketch for the RB17 are very Valkyrie, it even makes an appearance in the intro video, which is surprising as I assume they'd want to distance themselves from that as much as they could.

    The clip they used of the Valkyrie was back from when it was still a RB project.

    Yeah, but still. 


    Re: Valkyrie final design?

    Interesting. 100db inside the cabin when it's on, yikes. 

    tl;dw : This thing is an incredible feat of engineering and design. It's also going to be incredibly harsh, difficult to drive, and a nightmare to service. I love that it exists but doubt many of us will even get to see one in the metal. Sadly I suspect most of them will live indoors as crown jewels of car collections and barely ever get driven. 

     


    Re: Valkyrie final design?

    If I had the money I would buy this car for the weekend and the T.50 as a daily... the two most amazing cars to come out in decades, while being such different concepts, that combine perfectly.

    Man that thing looks good, but are they actually driveable? 

     

    No but you can sit in it and make engine noises.
