Aston Martin previewed an open-top version of its Valkyrie hypercar, which will be unveiled in full next week at the show pebble beach Concours d’Elegance in California.
The occasion was chosen to mark the 70th anniversary of the first Aston Martin sold in the United States.
Since the brand’s launch in the country with the DB2 in 1951, approximately 25% of all Aston Martins built have been sold in North America.
To celebrate the anniversary of its US division, Aston Martin will welcome Pebble Beach spectators to a nearby private ‘luxury clubhouse’, where a tribute will be paid to the ‘past and present’ of the British brand with a model display. history and two new car debuts.
The Valkyrie roadster will be presented privately at the event on Thursday August 12 before being on display from August 13.
The preview image doesn’t give much beyond confirmation that the doors will be hinged from the front in a scissor arrangement, rather than the hardtop car’s butterfly wing configuration.
It is not yet confirmed whether the Valkyrie Roadster will be a permanently open-top proposition, like the new Aston Martin V12 Speedster, or whether it will be offered with a removable roof panel.
Body revisions aside, the new open top can be expected to closely match the hardtop for performance stats, using the same 6.5-liter V12 supplied by Cosworth and the same tub in carbon fiber.
Appearing alongside the open-top Valkyrie, the new production Valhalla supercar, will make its US debut after its UK unveiling last month.
At the time, Aston Martin boss Tobias Moers said the number of builds would be unlimited during the car’s two years of production, but the company has now confirmed that it will build a maximum of 999 units.
