An Aston Martin Valkyrie Will Have Real Moon Dust In Its Paint

Supercar

This takes car customization to a whole new level.

The Valkyrie currently in development by Aston Martin and Red Bull promises to be a revolutionary hypercar with race-derived technology. Aston Martin also allows customers to extensively customise their Valkyrie to make each car unique. For one future owner, changing the exterior paint color simply wasn’t enough. Instagram user Lamborghiniks, who also owns a Pagani Huayra BC, Lamborghini Veneno, Koenigsegg Agera XS, has placed an order for a Valkyrie and is planning to put real moon dust into the hypercar’s paint. Yes, you read that correctly.

The hypercar’s striking, futuristic design already looks like something out of a science fiction film, but this takes it to another level. Writing on Instagram, the entrepreneur revealed that he has purchased a rock from the moon which will be ground down to dust and used in the hypercar’s Karosserie Lunar Red paint, in what will be the first car feature a paint formula that includes actual ingredients from space. As bragging rights go, it’s certainly a unique attribute. How much this procedure will cost hasn’t been revealed, neither has the cost of his Valkyrie. The starting price for the hypercar is $2.6 million, but this unique example will have no doubt cost a lot more.

Only 150 Aston Martin Valkyrie’s are being produced, so it’s not as if this future owner will have trouble standing out from the crowd. It is, after all, essentially a race car for the road, with a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 cosworth engine will delivering over 1,000-hp. Aston Martin even boldly claims the Valkyrie AMR Pro will be capable of setting lap times rivalling Formula One cars. Still, this will no doubt be one of the most unique Valkyrie’s of them all and should look spectacular when the unusual paint finish is completed.
