    We all know Newey is always late , but do you really believe this car will hit the road for real ?

    I dont doubt they will deliver a car unless we get into another crazy recession. But will it be what they promised 2/3 years ago? I hope so bc i love the Valkyrie.

    yes, it's happening.

    this is a ground breaking car and imo in the future will be worth insane amounts, anyone who passed on their allocation has made a mistake at least financially

    The Valkyrie is a different league of car than anything else out there. It's significantly more complex than the AMG One (which is ridiculously complex) and filled with a level of exotic hardware of which there is no other comparable road car. Primarily because it's not really a road car. I wouldn't be making a habit of driving one on anything but a glass smooth GP circuit. Personally, I think it's a staggeringly desirable combination of aesthetics, technology and powertrain, regardless of what has changed since inception.

    If you can get one, take it.

    The RACING program is cancelled. NOT the road car. Correct?

    I read it as the whole program, but may be just LeMans.

    not so sure I like or even understand it after that video. its impossible to get in and out of, and the gears sound like straight cut racing trans which is not usable on street, etc. if its only to trailer to track, why not get a group c racer like 964 or 333sp when it costs millions anyway?

    So, not for you? That's ok because they're all sold out to people who probably already own 20 or 30 cars like a group c racer 964 or 333sp or anything else they want. ;)

    yes I get that but what is this car really about? the car in the video seems like a pure race car. and if only purchasers of the car can opine on it, why have this thread at all?

    I'd probably do $100K damage to all the aero bits on the crap roads around here every time I drove it. But I still want one!

    Hello guys. I had a conversation in a fb group about Valkyrie and someone told me that the project was terminated.

    Is this accurate?

    Thank you in advance

    I don't know if the project is finished. But the first deliveries are scheduled for March/April it seems to me.

    @Twosherpaz has been generous enough to share news that he is expecting both the road going and track only versions of his Valkyrie's so my guess is the project is progressing.

    I still wish Jaguar made the C-X75. That and the Valkyrie are two of my favorite cars.
