Buying

What should I be paying?

Does it matter that the Valkyrie probably isn’t as finished as most owners would like? Yes, if they care about driving, no if they see it as an investment. And they will, because of the package: genuine F1 input, unique concept, Aston’s heritage, Newey’s design nous. There’s nothing else like it and there will only ever be 150 of them. It’s also a more complex and interesting car than the non-road legal AMR Pro version.

£2.5 million plus tax (a nice round £3 mill in the UK) for each of the 150 coupes. Beyond that there will be 40 AMR Pro versions, and then 85 roofless Spider versions of the Valkyrie (what Adrian Newey makes of that corruption of his original concept is probably best not recorded).

Lease rates aren’t worth discussing, because the kind of people buying these cars can justify them as easily as you or I do a few pints on a night out. However, even leaving interest aside (because that’s complex maths at TG level), borrowing £3 million over three years would mean monthly repayments of over £83,000. Money that would do the repayments on around 280 Vauxhall Corsas.
