Aston's latest mid-engined hypercar collaboration with Red Bull Advanced Technologies and Adrian Newey has been officially named the Aston Martin Valhalla.
Named after the warrior's paradise celebrated in ancient Norse mythology, Valhalla follows Valkyrie on Aston Martin's journey into the highest echelons of road car performance.
Employing lightweight construction methods and radical aerodynamics pioneered in Valkyrie, Valhalla will be propelled by a combination of high-efficiency, high-output turbocharged V6 petrol engine and battery-electric hybrid system. Just 500 Coupe examples of the all-carbon fibre hypercar will be built.
In continuing the fine tradition of Aston Martin 'V' cars, Valhalla can trace its lineage back to 1951, when the Vantage designation was given to high-performance variants of the then current model, the DB2. Together with the recently announced Vanquish Vision Concept, Valhalla continues this proud, seven-decade old 'V' car naming strategy, providing an evocative and powerful moniker fit for one of the world's most compelling ultra-high performance cars.
