Aston Martin Valkyrie

You'd certainly get a lot of stares using it for the daily commute but, contrary to its need-for-speed framework, the Aston Martin Valkyrie was actually designed to be driven on the road.

Created as a collaboration between Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing, the Valkyrie can hit a top speed in excess of 205 mph (330 km/h) with a growl to match. It's a car well worth some patience, revealed a huge five years after its concept was first shown to the world. Known as the brand's first hypercar, the Valkyrie takes 2000 man-hours to create and comes with a 6.5-liter V12 engine. There will only ever be 150 in the world.

The Aston Martin Valkyrie (also known by its code-names as AM-RB 001 and Nebula) is a limited production hybrid sports car collaboratively built by British automobile manufacturers Aston Martin, Red Bull Racing Advanced Technologies and several others.

The sports car is a product of collaboration between Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing to develop a track-oriented car entirely usable and enjoyable as a road car, conceived by Adrian Newey, Dr Andy Palmer, Christian Horner and Simon Spoule. The car's makers claim the title of fastest street-legal car in the world for it. Adrian Newey, Red Bull Racing's Chief Technical Officer and the world's most successful F1 designer aided in the design of the car.

Its main competitors are the Mercedes-AMG One and the Gordon Murray Automotive T.50. The start of the 2019 Formula One British Grand Prix, the car made a lap of the Silverstone circuit for the first time.

Aston Martin also announced a spider variant; only 85 will be produced. Production is expected to begin in 2023 for the spider variant.
