Hello everyone, welcome back to my vehicle and engines blog. Are any of you readers planning on buying one of the new Aston Martin Valkyrie? This new addition to the Aston Martin line is slightly out of my price range, but I would love to have it. See, the coolest thing about these modern race cars is that the cars are essentially built around the driver, in that they get digitally tailored around you. Looking at the list of big buck supercars, you will find custom seats as a fairly standardized feature. Ferrari released the LaFerrari with a non adjustable seat that is fit to the owner so it no one can change your seat position. It seems that Aston is playing the Trump card now, and will be 3d-scanning the entire body of the drivers in order to mold a seat that will best suit the driver down to the smallest and seemingly insignificant proportion.
I don’t really know how well this is going to work. 3D printing is a very precise art, so if they are scanning down to the micrometer than any change in body shape due to weight loss/gain, injury, and of course growth in height can greatly impact the final fit. Depending on how the scan if performed, changes in body position could affect how well you fit in your car. This is obviously a supercar, so I would assume when driving you have to be in certain positions anyways but this seems like it could be a little restrictive. What if your spouse/friend/other relative has to drive, either in the case of emergency or just for a sanctioned joy ride. Let me know what you guys and gals think about this move from Aston Martin? Let me know in the comments below and have a great day!
