Leading Aston Martin's activities on the peninsula this year will be North American debuts of two of the brand's most hotly anticipated and highly desirable cars as the Valhalla mid-engined hypercar and the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation heritage sports car both make their public debuts outside Europe for the first time.
The Valhalla hypercar utilises technology from F1 and was inspired by the Valkyrie (pictured) The Aston Martin Valhalla will debut on Friday, 16 August at 'The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering' which takes place in a garden-party setting on the rolling greens of Quail Lodge & Golf Club in the picturesque Carmel Valley.
The Valhalla is a revolutionary mid-engine hypercar incorporating concepts and technologies used in F1 racing and inspired by the Aston Martin Valkyrie. The new car benefits from the close involvement of Red Bull Advanced Technologies in its engineering and continues one of the brightest and most exciting engineering partnerships in the automotive world.
Following its debut at 'The Quail,' the Valhalla will be put on display for the remainder of the weekend at the brand's event space, 'Aston Martin Club 1913,' in Downtown Carmel's Sunset Center.
In addition to the display of Valhalla Saturday and Sunday, the 'Aston Martin Club 1913' venue in Carmel will host debuts of three other important Aston Martins.
A 40% scale model of the Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato will also make its debut at Monterey The DB4 GT Zagato Continuation heritage sports car will make its North American debut on the Monterey Peninsula accompanied by a 40% scale model of the DBS GT Zagato - a very limited edition DBS featuring Zagato coachwork that's paired with the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation as part of the DBZ Centenary Collection. Worldwide volume for this two-car collection is strictly limited to just 19 examples making this a unique project that pays tribute to an icon of the past and while simultaneously creating a classic and future collectible.
Joining the Valhalla, DB4 GT Zagato Continuation and DBS GT Zagato cars, a special edition Aston Martin DBS Superleggera commissioned by iconic luxury brand House of Bijan will also debut during Monterey Car Week. The bespoke special edition DBS is built in partnership with Aston Martin through the luxury brand's bespoke personalisation service - 'Q by Aston Martin'.
Special edition Bijan DBS will also make its U.S.A debut at Monterey The special edition DBS features a number of striking enhancements to the car which make it instantly recognisable: Most notably the bespoke 'Bijan Yellow' exterior paint finish which includes a subtle paisley pattern ghosted into the bonnet paint.
Inside, interior detailing has been finished in Bijan's characteristic soft alligator leathers; the owners initials can be personalised to the veneer, and the Bijan insignia is found throughout. This new edition will be available in both Coupe and Volante specification by order through Aston Martin authorised dealers worldwide, as well as through the House of Bijan directly.
