The Aston Martin Valkyrie is pegged as an 'F1 car for the road'. But is it really? With a little help from Aston Martin F1’s Otmar Szafnauer, the Valkyrie Chief Engineer Fraser Dunn and a big, fat Aston Martin F1 car, Top Gear Magazine’s Ollie Marriage investigates.

What an absolutely fantastic, amazing and beautiful sounding engine. Omg a naturally aspirated v12 cosworth generating 1000hp. See I'm not a materialistic person, but jeeez I wish I had money to drive some of these new super cars. This one does look and sound as scary as any of them and that's what I love about this one.

"Aston Martin's new F1 car" .. Also "Mercedes' 2 year old F1 car" 😂😅 AMG Project one for the win.

Otmar was really grasping at straws trying to draw parallels between that green Mercedes and Valkyrie when you have to point out how they both have brake ducts😅 It was hilarious how @2:23 he just said “Valkyrie has probably as much F1 technology as any other road car that I know of...” I was thinking any other road car that I know of probably has zilch for F1 technology😂

Not off to a good start attaining their goal... but at least they’re doing better than Williams🙁 That’s not really surprising, I think 3rd is really a hoop dream for them; but I am surprised that, although it’s still extremely early, Stroll’s been edging out Vettel.

The Valkyrie is by far the perfect combination between Formula 1 and Road car but let's be honest... HOW MANY RICH OWNERS WILL SMASH THAT FRONT WING ON A SPEED BUMP ONE DAY? 😬 I can already see it in a future "idot supercar drivers compilation"

Aston Martin sucks in F1, and they build a F1 car for the road, I hope they are faster than a Mercedes station wagon.

Not the same thing. AMF1 uses a custom engine from Mercedes. The Valkyrie uses a Cosworth or "Cozzuh," and so far it is a dream. And for a road legal car... What AM is doing is beyond madness, dude. Look at the man behind it. This thing will will make a new "Holy Trinity" along with the Jesko and the AMG One.

Stroll is really milking this as much as he can, trying to link the Valkyrie to the F1 team. It was Newey and Redbull that designed that car, not daddy's team.

That Valkyrie looks like a used proto. Scratches on the wheel hubs, not a great paint job, chipped carbon//. This defenitley is a development test/vehicle and it is well used, but what a beauty!

Stop linking Aston Martin with the Valkyrie project, it was all the hardwork and geniusness of Redbull F1 team and Adrain. Otmar is a fraud.

Great advertisement for Aston and nothing more. Consider his preparation and knowledge of the Valkyrie which he is supposed to be comparing quote: "I've noticed it has brake ducts" Wow you really know a lot about the car. It's like he looked over the Valkyrie right before the video. I really like the car but this is poor at best.

its incredible to me how they are putting so much effort into making what is essentially a formula 1 car road legal and creating the ultimate drivers car. and then about 90% of people who will buy the car will just let it sit in a garage and never drive it.

Aston Martin F1 car dimensions, 5.6 meters/18 feet 4 inches long with a 3.7 meter/12 foot 1 inch long wheelbase! The F1 car’s wheelbase at 145 inches is almost as long as the 149” Mini Cooper is overall! It’s total length of 220 inches is 8 inches longer than the 212 inch long 2021 Rolls Royce Ghost! Can they make F1 cars any longer?😳

F1 cars are so big these days. It’s insane how long and big they’ve gotten over the years. Seeing the F1 car next to the Valkyrie is mind blowing. You really see just how big today’s F1 cars are.

Really, you should be able to make a road car even faster than a F1 car. The rules are less restrictive. You mostly just need to add lights, bumpers, and airbags. Having the wheels and roof covered will be better for aero. Moveable aero pieces are totally legal. You can use fans or ground effects if you want. Full active suspension is totally legal. 4 wheels steering, AWD, also totally legal. There is no minimum weight. You can go nuts with the engine. And they've done some of those things. It's only compromised for practicality. Slap some soft slicks on that Valkyrie, and that 2g in corners will go way up. They could make this thing even more extreme really. It just becomes less practical as a real street car as you do it.
