    The result of a single-minded collaboration between Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing Advanced Technology, the stunning Valkyrie comes as close as possible to being a Formula 1 car without being restricted to the track. The Valkyrie pushes the boundaries of performance; a remarkable journey in engineering to make the impossible, possible. All-carbon fibre bodywork carries Aston Martin's trademark upper grille outline before flowing into a radical body shape that is utterly honed for performance, minimising load while pushing the power-weight ratio to the maximum. The striking aerodynamic exterior and open underfloor maximise downforce and harness the atmosphere around Valkyrie, allowing the hyper to tackle corners at over 3.3G.

    Valkyrie's otherworldly performance comes from the 6.5-litre V12 engine developed with Cosworth. Not what you’d call a traditional hybrid, this V12 is torque-enhanced during take-off and uses the electric motor for a power boost, revving all the way to an incredible 11,100 rpm. It is the most powerful naturally aspirated engine to grace any road car so far. It is so fierce that every Aston Martin Valkyrie is delivered with helicopter-grade, noise-cancelling headphones to protect the driver’s eardrums. Development of the Valkyrie extended beyond the boundaries of automotive technology, requiring input from the military, aeronautical and space industries. The car is piloted thousands of times a second by the Active Control Unit used in Apache attack helicopters, the active aero recalibrates the suspension, damping and form of the car. Even the car’s singular wider blade is manufactured by a supplier for NASA, as nothing that existed would wrap around the extreme curvature of the car’s windshield.

    Amalgam Collection and Alan Thornton

    Amalgam is delighted to partner with artist Alan Thornton to introduce a collection of silkscreen prints. Precise and technical in nature, these prints isolate the subject, laying the image onto Alan’s signature metallic background, that focuses the viewer’s eye on the sculptural, organic qualities of iconic cars and planes. Alan’s obsession with form, function and beauty, combined with his enduring passion for all things automotive and mechanical, align perfectly with Amalgam’s mission.

    The Process

    Screen printing is the process of transferring a stencilled artwork onto a flat surface using a mesh screen, ink and a squeegee. Starting with the photography, the subject matter is composed and lit with the intermediate processes and the final print in mind - each step very much influences the final outcome. In post-production the image is refined and manipulated to create the final tonal variations needed for the separation of colours, which are then half toned which simulates continuous-tone imagery through the use of dots or lines, varying either in size or in spacing, thus generating a gradient-like effect. For each colour, a positive acetate is transferred to a silk screen frame coated in photosensitive emulsion. Following exposure, washing out and drying, the frame is mounted on a to print bed, and the chosen colour ink is then forced through the mesh with a squeegee. This is a highly skilled craft process, sensitive to the touch, feel and technique of the printer, and as a result each print is unique.

    Handling Your Print

    Art screen prints are best handled by professional framers. We would always recommend framing your print with a box frame under UV protected glass or acrylic, which will give maximum protection. When removing your print from the tube, reach in with clean hands and gently twist the print to make it smaller, slowly pull the print out from the centre. Do not pull quickly at a corner as you may damage the corner. Try to physically handle the print as little as possible and, when you do, always make sure your hands are clean and that you support the print fully, as the paper can pick up dirt or crease. Try to avoid leaving the print rolled for any length of time.

    Art Screenprints of the Aston Martin Valkyrie are limited to an edition size of just 200. No frame is included. By purchasing this print, you agree and consent to your information being shared with Alan Thornton for use in the fulfilment of your order.
