Just before the 60th anniversary of Aston Martin's 1959 win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, they announced that they would be returning to the Circuit de Sarthe — with the Valkyrie hypercar. The World Endurance Championship will be forming a new hypercar-based class as the top level of competition in 2021, meaning the time is perfect for Aston Martin's re-entry into the series. The biggest modification needed to get the Valkyrie prepped for racing will be detuning it's 6.5-liter, 1,200 horsepower V12 to conform to the regulations. Whether the Valkyrie's hybrid system will make it into the race is unknown; the FIA doesn't require it but it would have to be placed in the same spot as the production version. With the input by Red Bull's F1 team and Cheif Designer Adrian Newey, Aston Martin looks well-prepared to be a contender at Le Mans in 2021.
