I hope R-motorsport keeps the gray and blue. That'll look really good on the Valkyrie and the best part about it is it's not another Red White and Black prototype.

Yep that noise is amazing but it could be the sound of the end of noisy combustion engined cars, but we have said that before.

Looks like the test mule (of the road car) that ran at British GP.

Altough there it apparently was only using 6 cylinders and barely accelerated at all.

Usually sound doesn't relate to a car's reliability, unless you hear the engine go boom!

But I will say one thing, the Valkyrie is out there running while other cars are not. If the hypercar/prototype is going to be a super version of this car, then they've got somewhat of a head-start.

And it's miles ahead of their last effort. Although I think they're trying to use the MiB memory flashy thing to make us all forget it

Aston Martin finances aren't good. The overall car market is not good. Regardless of how promising the new cars are, if the demand is not there from consumers then it will not sell. Considering Aston only makes about 6,500 cars a year, consumer sentiment is very important. A reduction in only 650 or so car sales can knock 10% off car revenues. No money, no races.

So you have any actual information to back up your claims? Last I say their sales have increased double digit percentages year on year for multiple years. Their cash reserve isn't great from investment in multiple platform development, that's a single cost that can be recouped with sales. Their costly engine program is done and Red Bull is putting up most of the cash for the last 2 big projects to keep Newey entertained.
