Aston Martin Valhalla at USD2 million is already sold out
No point booking it now, it is sold out already!
The Valhalla follows Valkyrie on Aston Martin’s journey into the highest echelons of road car performance. Previously code-named Aston Martin AM-RB-003, this USD2 million hypercar competes directly with the Ferrari LaFerrari and the McLaren Senna.
Employing lightweight construction methods and radical aerodynamics pioneered in Valkyrie, Aston Martin Valhalla will be propelled by a combination of high-efficiency, high-output turbocharged V6 petrol engine and battery-electric hybrid system with a possible output of more than 1,000bhp working with an 8-speed F1-inspired dual-clutch transmission, a limited-slip differential and an e-AWD system
In continuing the fine tradition of AstonMartin ‘V’ cars, Valhalla can trace its lineage back to 1951, when the Vantagedesignation was given to high performance variants of the then current model,the DB2. Though actual Vantage badging was never applied, the name stuck.
The first time the Vantage name appearedwas on the flanks of the DB5. Still it remained a name reserved for the mostpotent model derivatives until 2005, when the Vantage became a model line inits own right. Fourteen years later that acclaimed family of V8 and V12-poweredmodels is remembered as the most successful in Aston Martin’s history.
Since then the all-new generation ofturbocharged Vantage has fast forged a reputation as the most dynamicallyfocussed series production Aston Martin ever.
Though making greater concessions topracticality and road use, Valhalla remains true to the uncompromisingengineering ethos laid down by its bigger brother. Benefitting from genuinestate-of-the-art F1 technology and unrivalled active aerodynamics utilising variablemorphing surfaces, Valhalla is set to deliver equally impressive levels ofhandling performance.
Powered by a bespoke Aston Martin V6twin-turbo engine, Aston Martin Valhalla will surpass figures shown in today’shypercar world, underlining its own elite status.
Strictly limited to 500 coupes worldwide,the programme remains oversubscribed as Aston Martin continues to handpick thefinal lucky customers who will have the opportunity to own this extraordinarymachine.
