The pursuit of open-top luxury at speed comes with the challenge of remaining true to Aston Martin’s precise performance objectives. The Valkyrie Spider has inherited unique engineering solutions born from the combined talents of Aston Martin and Red Bull Advanced Technologies. That's an enviable starting point.


Key to Valkyrie Spider's spine-tingling performance is its ultra-lightweight construction and high downforce aerodynamics package. But it had to look good too. The upper body surfaces of the teardrop-shaped cockpit and lower tub contours follow the envelope of space between the huge full-length Venturi tunnels that run either side of the cockpit floor. They draw vast quantities of air beneath the car to feed the rear diffuser, generating colossal levels of downforce. While that's crucial to Valkyrie Spider's prodigious performance, the tunnels also keep the upper body surfaces free from additional aerodynamic devices that would spoil the purity of the legendary open top styling. Looks, after all, are everything.
