Aston Martin Limited Edition Valkyrie Spider revealed. This new Limited edition is a newer open-top version of Aston Martin’s Valkyrie hypercar. It is said to give “the most comparable experience to that of a Formula 1 car not limited to the track”.
According to reports, it got revealed at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance as part of Monterey Car Week in California, USA, the Aston Martin Valkyrie Spider. It is said to be limited to just 85 examples, and the availability for customers is said to be next year.
For the power output, this new limited edition gets the Cosworth-developed, hybridized 6.5-litre V12 is unchanged, at 1139hp, and revisions to the hypercar’s carbon-fiber tub and aerodynamics package ensure the Spider is closely matched to the hard-top in performance terms. There have been recalibrations made to suit the car’s new shape, while the weight penalty – usually a pitfall of convertible models – is kept to a minimum by use of a removable carbon-fiber roof section and polycarbonate roof windows.
The most significant modification on the Spider is the replacement of the Valkyrie’s gullwing-style center-hinged doors with front-hinged scissor doors. With these modifications in place, Aston Martin claims a marginal weight difference and says the Spider will top out at more than 349kph (217mph), or 330kph (205mph) with the roof off.
CEO Tobias Moers said the Spider takes the Valkyrie’s “passion and emotion to the next level” and also that he “can’t wait to hear” the mid-mounted engine revving to its 11,000rpm redline with the roof removed. There is no current news of it coming to the Indian market, and as this is a limited edition model the chances for it coming become even lower.
