Background

This is what happens when two titans of the sports cars world - Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing - team up to build one memorable supercar. Yes, it's as close as you'll get to an F1 car for the road and only a few lucky individuals will ever get to drive one: just 175 will be made.

60sec road test

Nobody has driven the Aston Martin Valkyrie yet, so we'll have to suspend our verdict until a bit nearer launch in 2019. What we do know is this: there's a 6.5-litre, naturally aspirated V12 mounted amidships, hooked up to a seven-speed paddle-shift transmission made by Ricardo Engineering. They're working on a 1:1 power ratio, with one horsepower for every kilogramme of bulk - so expect a 0-62mph time of comfortably less than 3.0sec. It'll be devilishly quick, make no mistake...
