GAYDON, England – Owners of the awesome Valkyrie – Aston Martin’s ”ultimate expression of hypercar design, engineering and performance” – already know they have a truly exceptional car but ‘Q by Aston Martin’ personalisation can realise further dreams and desires.

Its a joint project between Aston Martin and Red Bull Advanced Technologies, said to be ”a real-life expression of the uncompromising pursuit of performance”.

The already available 150-unit Valkyrie road-going hypercar can now be further optimised with an AMR Track Performance Pack whose track-only components can be swopped temporarily with road-legal parts to deliver eight percent* quicker lap times.

Among those parts are:

  • An aerodynamic front clam delivering greater downforce
  • A second set of all other exterior body panels
  • Lighter titanium brakes
  • Track-focused suspension
  • A matte black magnesium performance -steering-wheel and carbon-fibre aero-disc set.

Further options include a suite of personalised pit/garage and race suit accessories for owners to dress for the part.

Customers can also choose one of three AMR livery designs (or their own unique finish) from ‘Q by Aston Martin – Commission’, the brand’s VIP customisation service.

Options are boundless for those who want to keep their Valkyrie on the road: four designer specification themes to stay close to the designer’s visionand featuring exclusive Valkyrie colours, listed as Slipstream Green, Liquid Petroleum, Ethanol Silver and Maximum Orange.

But wait, there’s more…

Customers with something very special in mind can opt for an Ultimate Personalisation programme (AM’s capitals!) which invites owners to work with Aston Martin Design to refine their specifications, enhanced even further by ‘Q by Aston Martin – Commission’.

The roof and engine cover, in gloss black paint as standard, can be customised to be presented in exposed carbon fibre which can continue across the cantrails with a gloss lacquer and the silver textured tailpipe and muffler can be made black.

Or also opt to make their car among the first Aston Martins with full titanium wings badges.

The minimalist ergonomics of the cockpit offer a wide choice of alcantara colours and six seat-harness colours. Woven leather, first seen on the Aston Martin One-77, can be used instead.

All driver-focused switches on the steering-wheel – silver, black or red ”for a stealthy or track-inspired appearance” can be swopped for titanium items.

But wait, there’s even more of the more…

‘Q by Aston Martin’ can add a Gold Pack – 24-carat gold leaf livery laid under the paint lacquer; a Mokume Carbon Fibre pack will add ‘Carbon Jewellery’ to the inner scoop of the headlights, sidepod vanes, armrest, central interior vent, and the steering-wheel face plate.

Just to try on the suit – to coin an automotive term – potential buyers can drive a virtual car with their choice of accessories virtually fitted.
