It was in 2019 when Aston Martin introduced the AM-RB 003 in its concept glory at the Geneva Motor Show and two years later, the Gaydon-based marque revealed the production-ready model that bestows the Valhalla name.
The new mid-engined hybrid supercar slots below the flagship Valkyrie sports car and it is produced in collaboration with Red Bull Racing.
Under the hood, the new Aston Martin Valhalla employs a rear-mid-mounted twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 engine and a pair of electric motors. According to the car maker, ‘this is the most advanced and responsive V8 engine ever fitted to an Aston Martin’.
The electric motors, one on each axle, produce 157 kW of power. The combined power output churned by the electric drive and combustion engine is 699 kW and an earth-shaking 1,000 Nm of torque. The new Valhalla blasts from zero to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds and will stop accelerating at 330 km/h.
Gearshifts are provided by an 8-speed DCT transmission plus an electronic limited-slip differential. The electric powertrain is supplemented by a 400V battery hybrid system that enables the Valhalla to travel distances of up to 15 km before the ICE kicks in.
The new Aston Martin Valhalla comes equipped with full LED Matrix headlights with adaptive functionality and high-beam assist. There are bespoke Michelin tyres that measure 20” in front and 21” at the back. The wheels house High-performance Carbon Ceramic Matrix brakes.
Inside, the new supercar spawns a pared-back cockpit design, dual-zone air conditioning plus the brand’s HMI system with a central touchscreen that incorporates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The list of advanced driver assistance systems includes Auto Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Warning, Active Cruise Control, Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear View Parking Camera (with Surround View option).
The new Aston Martin Valhalla will be available in both left-hand and right-hand drive.
