David Coulthard has been spotted driving an Aston Martin Valkyrie in Monaco; a former F1 driver behind the wheel of an exotic hypercar will always arouse curiosity.
The Aston Martin Valkyrie and Mercedes-AMG One are two of the most exotic hypercars, not just because of their rarity
Being able to buy one is far from straightforward or certain.
But we know a man that can.
In 2019, David Coulthard confirmed that he had placed orders for the Valkyrie and Mercedes-AMG One.
Whilst not sure if the aforementioned Valkyrie is David’s, he unquestionably will pass the wealth criteria, that, plus his association with Red Bull Racing, played a significant part in the development of the Valkyrie; the likelihood is that it is his car. The chassis number is 86, which means it is 86 of 150 scheduled for eventual build and costing over £2.5 million.
For the technical amongst you, the Aston Martin Valkyrie is an F1-inspired hypercar powered by a naturally aspirated 6.5-litre Cosworth V12 engine that revs up to 11,000 rpm, which coexists with a Rimac-developed hybrid system, producing 1,140 bhp in total.
