Aston Martin officially unwrapped its multi-million dollar Valkyrie hypercar back in July alongside Red Bull Racing. Now, according to a report by Bloomberg, customers will have the opportunity for unparalleled customization opportunities on their orders.

Aston Martin’s chief creative officer Marek Reichman told the outlet that all 150 buyers will not only be able to select the paint and materials used for the seats, dashboard, headliner and trim but also be able to customize the reflectivity of the body panels and wheels. Taking it one step further, once a decision is made by the customer, a 1-to-18 scale model is produced and if it isn’t up to par, the process is revisited until the client is satisfied. Reichman revealed that one customer has already gone through 10 different versions of a one-off color.

Inside of the hypercar, the seats for both the driver and passenger will be custom fitted with laser measurements and the cushions will be attached directly to carbon fiber skeletons. While the English automaker hasn’t finalized a hybrid powertrain yet for the Valkyrie, we do know it will house a naturally-aspirated V12 under the hood which will put over 1,000 horsepower onto pavement.

Stay tuned for more updates on what will surely be 150 marvels of engineering once completed.
