Aston Martin is a British brand that’s always been associated with subtle luxury; a kind of understated elegance borne by their cars. All that changed with the introduction of the Valkyrie, Aston Martin’s first-ever hypercar. There is nothing restrained about this speed demon it projects the Norse origins of its rather unique name with every carbon fiber weave.
There is a popular saying that ‘many hands spoil the broth.’ In this case, however, it has been proven that there are times when that statement simply does not hold true. The Valkyrie may be the brainchild of Aston Martin and Red Bull racing but several others partners were involved in the creation of the futuristic hypercar.
Apart from Rimac that developed the hybrid battery system, there are others like Multimatic that worked on the carbon fiber monocell. Alcon and Surface Transforms supplied the brakes; Bosch was responsible for the ECU, traction control, and ESP systems, and Wipac Technologies took charge of the LED and tail lights.
Surface Transforms plc (LON:SCE) are experts in the development and production of carbon-ceramic materials and the UK’s only manufacturer of carbon-ceramic brakes for automotive use.
