New Aston Martin Valkyrie In The Works

Supercar / Comments

Production will allegedly be limited to just 25 units.

Customer deliveries haven't started yet for Aston Martin's highly anticipated Valkyrie hypercar, but early adopters will be able to buy an awesome special edition of the F1-inspired hypercar. Over on Instagram, Knight International has posted a sneak preview of the new special edition hypercar dubbed the Valkyrie Red Bull Signature edition.

Production will allegedly be limited to just 25 units with the track version getting a special livery, while the road car will get a choice of seven graphics packages. In total, Aston Martin plans to build only 150 Valkyrie road cars and 25 AMR Pro track cars.

The teaser image shows the special-edition Valkyrie finished in dark blue with red racing stripes, which looks similar to the livery worn by Red Bull's F1 racing cars. It's not uncommon for new car models to launch with special editions, but it shows that there's high demand for the Valkyrie.

Technical details of the Red Bull Signature edition are unknown, but the upgrades are likely to be cosmetic only. The road-going Valkyrie will be powered by a high-revving V12 developed by Cosworth that produces 1,000 horsepower and 545 lb-ft of torque. A battery-electric system developed by Rimac adds an additional 160 hp and 206 lb-ft of torque, bringing the total output to 1,160 hp at 10,500 rpm and 663 lb-ft of torque at 6,000 rpm.

Aston Martin is also offering an AMR Track Performance Pack that adds some track-only components including an aerodynamic front clam delivering greater downforce and efficiency, lightweight titanium brakes, track-focused suspension and magnesium performance wheels with carbon-fiber aero-disks.

A track-only Valkyrie AMR Pro is also coming, which will be even more extreme than the road car. Aston Martin claims it's capable of setting faster lap times than Formula One and LMP racing cars. Customer deliveries for the Aston Martin Valkyrie are expected to begin in 2020.
