Aston Martin’s Revolutionary Hypercar Hits The Track With F1 Drivers

“Max had a go before me, so the anticipation was building, and to get a chance to drive it was really special. Obviously there’s still some development to do, but already it feels very good, especially the balance between the corners. It’s light; it feels sharp. Sure, compared to an F1TM car, you’re missing the outright downforce, but you still feel the Gs in the corners and it definitely reacts closer to an F1TM car than a normal road car. It’s pretty special. I just need to get my hands on one!”.Powering the Aston Martin Valkyrie will be a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine from Cosworth that produces 1,000 horsepower and 545 lb-ft of torque and rev all the way up to 11,200 rpm. A battery-electric system developed by Rimac adds an additional 160 hp and 206 lb-ft of torque.
