Hold your breath like this Aston Martin Valkiri circuit soaked in rain

Several Aston Martin Valkiris have reached customers and, more recently, a completely black example of a British hypercar on the Mugello circuit in Italy.

The Valkyrie featured in this clip is considered one of Aston Martin’s development prototypes, and despite the value of the car, the driver was not afraid to throw it at his speed during the rain.

While it seems like very few people outside of Aston Martin and lucky enough to buy Valkyrie have driven it at this stage, there is no denying the fact that it is one of the most notable street legal performance cars ever made.

Sitting in the center of the Valkyrie is a 6.5-liter naturally ambitious V12 that is specially made by Cosworth and pumps 1,000 hp when revised at 11,100 rpm. The car then had a small supplementary electric motor and battery supplied by Remac, resulting in a total of 1,160 hp and 664 lb-ft (900 Nm) of torque at 6,000 rpm.

Of course, it’s not just Valkiri’s powertrain that makes it special. Thanks to its innovative design and reliance on underfloor aerodynamics, it produces a peak downforce of about 1,814 kg (4,000 lb) and during this clip, we can see some arrows working with all the spray by the rear diffuser. It’s a sight to behold.

What makes Valkyrie even more remarkable is that it’s not even the most track-centric variant. The title belongs to the Valkyrie AMR Pro, which came to life through a canceled racing program for a Le Mans Hypercar by Aston Martin. It has the same powertrain as a road-going car but benefits from a whole new aerodynamic package with more downforce.
