First peek at the Aston Martin Valkyrie interior: Video screens. Video screens everywhere.

The Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar seems to be coming along nicely -- latest week, we learned that someone got around to installing the headlights, and presently a blurry walkaround video brought to our attention by Autocar indicates that the mocked-up interior we saw in Geneva has since been replaced with a cockpit humans can actually sit in.

What can we tell from this supposedly leaked, tragically vertical showroom video clip? Check it out for yourself:

For one, if you detest the “floating infotainment screen” phenomenon, the Valkyrie isn’t the car for you. We can create out four screens here: one honker atop the the center of the dash, one in the middle of the button-ladened, very F1-like steering yoke and one close each A-pillar. These screens are very prominent, dominating the car’s very tiny two-person cockpit; whether they'll be more elegantly integrated on the customer cars, which will likely start delivery in two thousand-nineteenth, remains to be seen.

The A-pillar screens, we suspect, get the space of rearview mirrors -- though the Valkyrie has gained other functional bits as it's edged closer to production, love a single windshield wiper, it's yet to sprout traditional side-mounted rearview mirrors.

Another thing thing this walkaround helps emphasize is the Valkyrie’s size: Bucking the trend of bloat, it’s a compact tiny thing, and there doesn’t seem to be an oz of overweight on it. Number word on weight, but a curb wt of one tonne -- that's around 2.200 pounds -- has been tossed out there. We declare the less mass its 6.5-liter Cosworth V12 has to motivate, the better.

A total of one hundred seventy-five Valkyries will be built: one hundred fifty for the road and twenty-five only for the track. It'll probably cost around $3 million, which seems to be the going rate for next-gen hypercars.
