The new Aston Martin Valkyrie broke cover making its dynamic public debut in front of an enthusiastic crowd ahead of the 2019 British Grand Prix.
Piloted by the company’s high-performance driver, Chris Goodwin, the 1,160bhp machine took to Silverstone’s world-famous Grand Prix circuit for its first public demonstration run.
The world’s most extreme road car and platform for a future FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) challenger, Andy Palmer, Aston Martin Lagonda President and Group CEO said: “Today is a real milestone in not only Aston Martin’s history but for our industry as a whole. Aston Martin Valkyrie continues to redefine what you and I recognise as a hypercar, possessing unrivalled levels of performance in a package that is technologically beyond anything else. While Chris’ demonstration today was not delivered at full speed, there is no doubt in my mind that we will one day return to deliver its full potential around this magnificent circuit.”
The 150 road-going Aston Martin Valkyries are sold out, with first deliveries commencing in the last quarter of this year.
