Aston Martin drafts in the big guns to sample the Valkyrie

Development of the much-anticipated Aston Martin Valkyrie marches on. Just this week at Silverstone, Formula 1 stars Max Verstappen and Alex Albon had the chance to sample the 1,160HP V12 hypercar, which is being developed in partnership with Red Bull Advanced Technologies, for the very first time…

Singing in the rain 

To mark the addition of two further Valkyrie verification prototypes to its fleet, Aston Martin called on the technological partner with which it’s developing the car, Red Bull, in order to borrow its current Formula 1 drivers Max Verstappen and Alex Albon. You can see what both of these young stars thought of the mighty Valkyrie and, of course, listen to the car’s glorious V12 singing away in the short film above. We’re not sure about you, but the thought of these monsters tearing around Le Mans by night when the new hypercar regulations come into play raises our pulses considerably.
