  • The first-ever customer unit of the Aston Martin Valkyrie has recently rolled off the company’s assembly line in Gaydon, UK, and is handled by a dedicated team that takes care of the vehicle from assembly right until delivery.
  • Each vehicle takes 2,000 hours to be completed, and this does not count the fact that each vehicle is tested at Aston Martin’s facility in Silverstone before being handed to customers
  • As a reminder, the Aston Martin Valkyrie is a hybrid hypercar with a 6.5-liter V12 that has a total system output of 1,160 horsepower at 10,500 rpm and 900 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm.

The first of 150 units of the Aston Martin Valkyrie has finally rolled off the production line and is well on its way to its lucky owner

To say that the Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar is exclusive is an understatement. With only 150 units to be made, every model produced is a milestone of its own, especially if it’s the first-ever unit to roll of the production line.

“It is an immensely proud moment for us to complete our first-ever hypercar," says Tobias Moers, Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer. "The Aston Martin Valkyrie program has tested everyone who has worked on it to the limit but the commitment to the dream has produced a truly incredible car, an F1 car for the road."

As a chief rival to the Mercedes-AMG One, the Aston Martin Valkyrie uses a lot of technologies from Formula 1. It is no surprise then that Aston Martin’s engineers want to take a lot of time in producing each vehicle, 2,000 hours to be precise.

Before the Valkyrie reaches customers, each vehicle must be tested on track first at Aston Martin’s facility in Silverstone. This is also where most of the hypercar’s development took place.

As a reminder, the Aston Martin Valkyrie is a hybrid hypercar with a 6.5-liter V12 that has a total system output of 1,160 horsepower at 10,500 rpm and 900 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm.

The hypercar was developed together with Red Bull’s Chief Technical Officer, Adrian Newey, in which he commissioned with Cosworth the development of the hypercar’s 6.5-liter naturally-aspirated V12.

The engine alone produces around 1,000 horsepower and has a redline of 11,100 rpm, making it the most powerful and highest-revving naturally-aspirated engine ever fitted to a road car.

Mated to it is an electric motor that produces an additional 160 horsepower and 280 Nm of torque. As a result, this hybrid hypercar has a total system output of 1,160 horsepower at 10,500 rpm and 900 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. Power is then sent to the rear wheels via a 7-speed single-clutch automated manual made by Ricardo.

With all 150 units already spoken for, let’s just hope that the hypercars’ lucky owners will actually take it out on the track rather than simply treating the Valkyrie as mere investments, sitting unused in a temperature-controlled garage.

04 November 2021 - Gaydon, UK: The first customers will soon receive their game-changing Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercars. The ultra-luxury British car manufacturer announced today that the highly anticipated Valkyrie coupe has entered full production and the first customer car is now complete, with deliveries planned in the coming weeks.

Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer, Tobias Moers commented: “It is an immensely proud moment for us to complete our first ever hypercar. The Aston Martin Valkyrie programme has tested everyone who has worked on it to the limit but the commitment to the dream has produced a truly incredible car, an F1® car for the road. The Valkyrie is born out of the steadfast dedication of a large group of highly skilled engineers and technicians who have worked tirelessly to get Valkyrie to the production stage. I’m sure our customers will be delighted with what they have achieved.”

Like all Aston Martin sports cars, Valkyrie is being built at the marque’s UK Headquarters in Gaydon. A dedicated project delivery team manages the build right through to delivery in a specially commissioned Valkyrie production area. A team of highly skilled technicians are hand-building each of the 150 cars, with each Valkyrie taking over 2000 man hours to create.

Before each Valkyrie is delivered, it is track-tested at the Aston Martin high performance facility at the home of British Motor Racing, Silverstone where much of the development of the hypercar has taken place.

Boasting a hybrid V12 powertrain developing a maximum power of 1,155PS, the Aston Martin Valkyrie incorporates concepts and technologies taken directly from Formula One® and is set to be the era defining hypercar.
