The Aston Martin Valkyrie Project Could Be In Trouble

Rumours say that the incredible Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar might never see the light of day for a number of reasons.


  • The hypercar is experiencing reliability issues.

  • Drivability is said to be compromised.

  • There are 175 deposits for the car to date.


Aston Martin, like many low-volume performance and luxury carmakers, has had a tough 2020. Although this might not be the only reason for the Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar not being produced, according to rumours, it certainly won’t help.

Aston Martin changed hands earlier in the year and production of the DBX SUV has begun. Despite these upbeat facts, the company has lost a considerable amount of money over the last year and it could handicap further development work on the Valkyrie.

According to TheSuperCarBlog.com, the hypercar is experiencing general reliability issues. It is unclear if these problems are related to the Cosworth-built 6.5-litre V12 and Rimac-sourced KERS hybrid system but apparently, the Valkyrie is said to be difficult to handle. It does have an impressive 1,176 horsepower on tap.

The financial losses and uncertain near-future economics may force Aston Martin to set the program aside. Or, potentially sell and build track- or special editions of the car in smaller numbers and at a higher price. Sources to the original story are not very optimistic – there may never be a Valkyrie car.
