Aston Martin Valkyrie AM RB 001 hypercar interior shown in leaked video

Aston’s upcoming hypercar has been creeping closer and closer to its production-ready form. It finally has an interior.

First peek at the Aston Martin Valkyrie interior: Video screens. Video screens everywhere.

WE’RE TALKING ABOUT PROBABLY THE HIGHEST SCREEN:DASH RATIO IN THE BUSINESS

The Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar seems to be coming along nicely — last week, we learned that someone got around to installing the headlights, and now a blurry walkaround video brought to our attention by Autocar indicates that the mocked-up interior we saw in Geneva has since been replaced with a cockpit humans can actually sit in.

What can we tell from this supposedly leaked, tragically vertical showroom video clip? Check it out for yourself:

For one, if you hate the “floating infotainment screen” phenomenon, the Valkyrie isn’t the car for you. We can make out four screens here: one honker atop the the center of the dash, one in the middle of the button-ladened, very F1-like steering yoke and one near each A-pillar. These screens are very prominent, dominating the car’s very small two-person cockpit; whether they will be more elegantly integrated on the customer cars, which will likely begin delivery in 2019, remains to be seen.

The A-pillar screens, we suspect, take the place of rearview mirrors — though the Valkyrie has gained other functional bits as it has edged closer to production, like a single windshield wiper, it has yet to sprout traditional side-mounted rearview mirrors.

The secretive Mercedes-AMG hypercar to beat all hypercars is finally revealing bits and pieces of itself. AMG CEO Tobias Moers showed off the drivetrain, and spoke briefly about the car in a shadowy …

Another thing thing this walkaround helps emphasize is the Valkyrie’s size: Bucking the trend of bloat, it’s a compact little thing, and there doesn’t seem to be an ounce of fat on it. No word on weight, but a curb weight of 1 tonne — that’s around 2,200 pounds — has been tossed out there. We say the less mass its 6.5-liter Cosworth V12 has to motivate, the better.

A total of 175 Valkyries will be built: 150 for the road and 25 only for the track. It will probably cost around $3 million, which seems to be the going rate for next-gen hypercars.
