Meet the Aston Martin Valiant: Fernando Alonso’s $2.56M V12 Track Vision

Aston Martin ValiantThis year is proving to be monumental for Aston Martin. The renowned British marque has just unveiled its latest creation: the Valiant, a track-focused, road-legal special edition built upon the Valour’s foundation. Here’s everything you need to know…

While many car brands are ditching manual transmissions, Aston Martin is championing the preservation of stick shifts. Beneath the Valiant’s sculpted carbon fiber exterior lies a monstrous heart: a 745PS Twin Turbo 5.2-liter V12 engine. Paired with a six-speed manual transmission, it houses Aston Martin’s commitment to creating unbridled driver-focused machines. Only 38 units of the Valiant will be produced worldwide, and all have already been allocated.

Valiant originated from Fernando Alonso’s personal commission. Inspired by his 23-year Formula 1 career and exploiting the edge of performance, he envisioned a lightweight, race-inspired version of the Aston Martin Valour. Crafted by Aston Martin’s Q division, the Valiant embodies meticulous design and stands as a strictly limited-edition special.

“Valour was a spectacular celebration of Aston Martin’s 110th anniversary, and stirred me to create a more extreme, race car inspired version that was track focussed, while also delivering a thrilling drive on-road. Valiant is born from my passion for driving at the limit and I have enjoyed working closely with the Q by Aston Martin team on both the design and technical specification and believe we have created a masterpiece.” said in a press release Fernando Alonso, Aston Martin Aramco Formula One® Team driver .

The Valiant will make its debut at the 2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed beginning July 11, with only 38 units available, all already sold, priced at £2 million (~$2.5 million) each. For more information about this exceptional track car, visit Aston Martin’s website.
