A $7 Part Killed the $3.25 Million Valkyrie's Debut Run At the Goodwood Festival of Speed

The Aston Martin Valkyrie suffered stage fright and stopped working during its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed

An unexpected malfunction almost ruined the Aston Martin Valkyrie's debut

The car was recently unveiled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, where it exhibited a rare case of stage fright

During the hill climb, the Valkyrie stopped working

Apparently, a $7 part, between the low and high voltage batteries caused the issue

Despite the problem promptly being fixed, the Valkyrie's debut will be a memorable one

Lawrence Stroll - Aston Martin chairman - says it's better that the issue happened on a pre-production vehicle and not on a customer vehicle

Stroll also ensures that this will not affect the delivery schedule

The $3.0 milion Valkyrie is one of the most anticipated hypercars and will be produced in just 150 copies

While the even crazier Vakyrie AMR Pro will be made in jsut 40 examples

The Valkyrie features a hybrid powertrain with a Cosworth-built naturally-aspirated V-12

The 6.5-liter V-12 develops 1,160 hp, revs to 11,000 RPM and allows for a 0-60 mph time of under 3.0 seconds

And all 150 Valkyries (190 with the AMR) will be delivered to the lucky customers on time
