The only thing better than owning an Aston Martin Valkyrie is having its roofless counterpart parked in the garage as well. That must’ve been on the owner’s mind when they forked out the money to buy one of the Valkyrie Spider examples to complete the family portrait. A new video shows the dynamic duo under at a dealership in the UK together with a couple of other cars.
The achingly beautiful DB5 grand tourer – one of the only 887 coupes to be built – joined them under the same roof at the showroom in Nottingham. There was also an “intruder” in the shape of a Ferrari Daytona SP3, capped at just 599 units. Yes, the car belongs to the same person who owns the three Aston Martins. The Valkyries are even rarer since the Gaydon-based marque is making just 150 coupes and 85 spiders.
We are happy to see the two Valkyrie automobiles’ vivid hues in a world where most cars are grey or black. The spider maintains style in British Racing Green, while the coupe is painted a striking shade of Sunburst Yellow. Thanks to a crazy aerodynamic design, both cars appear fast even when they are still, leaving you to wonder how Aston Martin even managed to get the hypercar approved for use on public roads.
Regarding fastening a license plate, there exists a third Valkyrie taste that is unsuitable for usage on public highways. The AMR Pro is a track-only version, limited to 40 pieces, that shares the same Cosworth-built V12 normally aspirated engine without the hybrid component. It continues to produce four-digit horsepower even when the electric components are removed.
One of the few is the Valkyrie new cars with real Formula 1 DNA, along with the Mercedes-AMG One. The development phase for both had its ups and downs, forcing the companies to delay the start of series production. Those who find these two vehicles overly intricate and are looking for an old-school experience likely prefer the Gordon Murray T.50. I’d personally get the McLaren F1’s spiritual successor since it has a manual and weighs practically nothing.
