Watch: an exclusive drive of the 1,160bhp Aston Martin Valkyrie on road
Is this £2.5m chunk of unobtanium just too extreme for the road?
You’ve already seen the Valkyrie on track, but look! It has actual numberplates! It's a road legal machine!
So what’s it like out there, amongst the Corollas and SUVs and traffic and kerbs and so on? In a world exclusive, Ollie Marriage spent the day driving Aston’s 1,160bhp naturally aspirated V12 hypercar around the streets, drive-throughs, cityscapes and oil fields of Bahrain, to see just how liveable the Valkyrie actually is.
Oh, we should point out the 150mph standing start acceleration was done on track. Not in the centre of Manama. Obviously.
