You’ve already seen the Valkyrie on track, but look, it has numberplates, this is a road legal machine. Remove the front plate and that’s where the first aid kit is tucked away. Ready distributed for you if you have a shunt. So what’s it like out there, amongst the Corollas and SUVs? In a world exclusive, Ollie Marriage spent the day driving Aston’s 1155bhp naturally aspirated V12 hypercar around the streets, drive throughs, cityscapes and oil fields of Bahrain, to see just how liveable the Valkyrie actually is. Oh, we should point out the 150mph standing start acceleration was done on track. Not in the centre of Manama. Obviously.
