Aston Martin Valkyrie is not meant to be a garage queen: Design boss

Aston Martin wants Valkyrie owners to drive their hypercars and not store them away in garages.

Marek Reichman, Chief Creative Office of Aston Martin said, “If they want to buy a Valkyrie and stick it in a museum, great. But you want to hear and see them. You want to look at Instagram feeds of Valkyries driving through tunnels. That’s why we make them. You want people to enjoy them.”

Reichman also revealed that customers who have taken delivery are enjoying their cars. In fact, one owner has already clocked over 930 miles in his Valkyrie. Apparently, it has been driven on public roads most of the time and not at a racetrack.

That being said, the Valkyrie may not be the most practical hypercar out there. The 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine is loud, and the ride is harsh. There is little to no space for luggage, and getting in and out of the car is a faf.
