The Valkyrie going into production now also means that Aston Martin he beat Mercedes and its competitor hypercar, the AMG One, to production – both cars saw their “debut” in 2017. The last time we heard from Mercedes on that front, the AMG One was still in the testing phase. The updated timing for the car’s production release was not detailed in this announcement which took place over a year ago. Maybe who ordered the AMG There is more information on when their specific cars will be built, but for now the production car is still floating in the ether.
Meanwhile, Aston Martin says the first Valkyrie, pictured here in green, is awaiting delivery. Aston doesn’t say who the first owner is or details the car’s specs, but we applaud the chosen dark green paint.
“It is a moment of immense pride for us to complete our first ever hypercar,” said Aston Martin CEO Tobias Moers. “The Aston Martin Valkyrie program tested everyone who worked on it, but the commitment to the dream produced a truly incredible car, a F1 car on the road. “
Valkyrie production takes place in a special Valkyrie-only area at Aston’s headquarters in Gaydon. A small team of technicians takes over 2,000 hours in total to build each car and 150 Valkyries in total will be produced.
