Case story

Technical Partnership with Aston Martin - Valkyrie Hypercar Program

TenCate Advanced Composites is the composite technology partner of the Aston Martin Valkyrie program, supplying advanced composite materials for a broad range of end-use applications throughout the car, including structural, cosmetic, and high temperature components. TenCate’s Expert Services team worked closely with Aston Martin to ensure the best possible composite material solution for the program, developing custom material forms where needed to best meet the unique application demands. As Aston Martin’s Valkyrie program technical partner, TenCate Advanced Composites has the skillset and mindset to join in meeting the challenges of developing and producing the hypercar of its generation. Aston Martin set themselves extraordinary targets for Valkyrie, their first ever hypercar:

  • No steel structural component
  • 1:1 power-to-weight ratio
  • As close as possible to an F1™ car without being restricted to the track

The Aston Martin Valkyrie is built around a lightweight carbon fiber structure, boasting truly radical aerodynamics for unprecedented levels of downforce in a road-legal car.
