Almost one year after the original announcement, Aston Martin has finally revealed further details of its upcoming Valkyrie Hypercar. Aston Martin and Red Bull Advanced Technologies have partnered to develop the Valkyrie\u2019s aerodynamics, body styling and cockpit packaging.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe Valkyrie\u2019s teardrop-shaped cockpit is designed around the full-length Venturi tunnels that run either side of the cockpit floor. These tunnels draw vast quantities of air to the rear diffuser and are essential to generating the Valkyrie\u2019s extraordinary levels of downforce. To avoid any unwanted aerodynamic disturbance or stylistic \u2018clutter\u2019 traditional door mirrors have been replaced with discreetly mounted rear facing cameras.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe headlights are inspired by the pure functionality of a Formula One\u2019s components. With the low and high beam elements attached to an intricate exposed anodised aluminium frame, they are 30-40 per cent lighter than the lightest series production headlamps available on any previous Aston Martin vehicle. The rear centre high LED stop light is mounted on the tip of the small shark\u2019s fin that runs down the spine of the Aston Martin Valkyrie\u2019s airbox and rear bodywork.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nTo maximise interior space, occupants adopt a reclined \u2018feet-up\u2019 position reminiscent of today\u2019s Formula One and Le Mans Prototype race cars, ensuring driver and passenger are extremely safe, perfectly supported and feel completely at one with the car. A four-point harness comes as standard, with an optional six-point harness for track driving.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nTo Keep drivers focused on the road ahead, all switchgear is located on the steering wheel, with the vital signs shown on a single OLED display screen. The steering wheel is also detachable, both to aid ingress and egress, and to serve as an additional security measure.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAston Martin \u2018wings\u2019 badge was considered too heavy for the Valkyrie, so the design team came up with a chemical etched aluminium badge that\u2019s 30 per cent thinner than a human hair. The badge nicknamed the \u2018lacewing\u2019 is then attached to the painted body and covered with a perfectly smooth coat of lacquer.\r\n\r\nThat\u2019s what we have so far. Hopefully, it\u2019s not another 12 months before the next reveal.\r\nCheck it out\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
