The Aston Martin Valkyrie simulator is installed at the headquarters of the Red Bull F1. The overseas blogger virtually rolled on the British novelty.

This year, the Geneva Motor Show was very full of all sorts of presentations. Among them it is worth noting a stand of the British Gibird supercar Aston Martin Valkyrie. Like the AM-RB 003 hypercar prototype, Valkyrie is the brainchild of Adrian Newey, Red Bull Formula 1 technical director.

This video on YouTube’s Carfection channel gives us an idea of ​​the mid-engine Aston Martin supercar.

The Valkyrie will produce an incredible 1,160 horsepower at 10,500 rpm. On board, there is also a hybrid power system, an electric motor capable of delivering an additional power of 160 horsepower, using the Formula One powered KERS system.

Henry Catchpole from the Carfection Channel was invited to the Red Bull F1 headquarters in Milton Keynes, England. Despite the fact that he was amazed at all the trophies and equipment of the Formula 1 racing team, he was not distracted from his main goal – to ride a powerful car. He drove the Aston Martin Valkyrie on a Red Bull Formula 1 simulator around the Circuit de Spa Francorchamps circuit.

The design of the simulator is amazing – it uses the real chassis of the Red Bull F1 car, coded and programmed by the company’s engineers. The blogger noted that representatives of Red Bull and Aston Martin were very careful about the disclosure of classified information.

At the end of the route, Henry Catchpol reached a speed of 338 km / h, despite the fact that street tires were allegedly put on the car.
