This is the Aston Martin Valkyrie, the brand’s first-ever hypercar

The naturally aspirated V12 was on show at Goodwood Festival of Speed this year, where it was driven up the hill with Supercar Blondie’s Sergi Galiano.

Aston Martin says the $3 million hypercar is the fastest street-legal car in the world.

And it’s built with so many incredible Easter Eggs… check them all out in the video below.

The Valkyrie’s incredible aerodynamics would, in theory, allow it to drive upside down.

The company says this is made possible with aero flaps in the front splitter that produce crazy downforce. 

We’ll take the brand’s word for this.

Aston Martin built the entire body of the Valkyrie out of carbon fiber, there is no steel used anywhere. 

It’s essentially a Formula 1 car for the road.

One of the most eye-catching design features of the car is the enormous duct that goes straight through from front to back. 

And speaking of the back, it’s hard to look away from the massive double rear diffusers. 

Aston Martin made the spoiler out of military-grade material because the exhaust pipes sit right below it. 

If it wasn’t made of the tough stuff, the spoiler would melt in minutes. 

One of the many Easter eggs in this car are the incredible taillights which are reminiscent of those on the $8 million Bugatti Divo. 

The naturally aspirated V12 creates 1160 hp. 

And with the engine right behind the driver’s head, you can feel that power vibrating throughout the car. 

Inside, the luxury is paired back, it doesn’t have a fancy brand-name stereo or seats with a massage function. 

As Sergi says, “you’re getting a Formula 1 car for the road, you’re not here for the plush experience”. 

The interior is designed to mimic an F1 car’s cockpit. 

And it’s a tight fit inside, there’s no way Shaquille O’Neal could contort his body to fit. 

Not even the detachable steering wheel could allow for this. 

The car was born from a partnership between Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing. 

And it was built with aerodynamics in mind. 

Instead of side mirrors, Aston Martin mounted tiny cameras to the body of the car. 

The display is then fed to the car’s A-pillars for ultimate visibility. 

There’s also no rearview mirror, probably because there’s no rear window. 

Instead, the Valkyrie displays footage from a camera mounted on the back of the car.
