Fernando’s Career Choice

Aston Martin has recently revealed the Valour, a £1 million analogue supercar.

It features a 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12, producing 715PS and 753Nm.

It has a bespoke 6-speed manual gearbox.

A limited production of 110 units and evidently all sold out.

The design is retro-inspired with modern touches, featuring a clamshell bonnet, NACA ducts, and an upswept Kamm tail.

The interior is uncluttered with an old-school gear lever and seats inspired by the 1959 Le Mans-winning DBR1.

Despite the retro experience, it includes electronic traction and stability control, adaptive dampers, and Carbon Ceramic Brakes.

Built to celebrate Aston Martin’s 110th anniversary, drawing from iconic models like the V8 Vantage.

Deliveries expected by year-end.

Lawrence Stroll, Aston Martin’s executive chairman, describes Valour as ‘A celebration of the brand’s heritage and a testament to its modern vibrancy.’

Also, there is a Special Edition, The Valiant, inspired by Fernando Alonso.

This lighter, more extreme version is limited to 38 bespoke units with advanced engineering tweaks.

Fernando’s vision and passion for extreme driving inspired the creation of the Aston Martin Valiant.

The Aston Martin Valiant is designed to excel on the track while remaining road-legal, making it a highly focused performance machine.

Fernando Alonso’s input ensures that the Valiant provides a thrilling drive on the track and on the road, combining extreme performance with driver enjoyment.

I wonder if Fernando’s inspiration was:

 ‘I want a car that makes me question my career choices every time I drive it’
