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 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. Though actual Vantage badging was never applied, the name stuck.
The first time the Vantage name appeared was on the flanks of the DB5. Still it remained a name reserved for the most potent model derivatives until 2005, when the Vantage became a model line in its own right. Fourteen years later that acclaimed family of V8 and V12-powered models is remembered as the most successful in Aston Martin’s history.
Since then the all-new generation of turbocharged Vantage has fast forged a reputation as the most dynamically focussed series production Aston Martin ever.
Though making greater concessions to practicality and road use, Valhalla remains true to the uncompromising engineering ethos laid down by its bigger brother. Benefitting from genuine state-of-the-art F1 technology and unrivalled active aerodynamics utilising variable morphing surfaces, Valhalla is set to deliver equally impressive levels of handling performance.
Powered by a bespoke Aston Martin V6 twin-turbo engine, Aston Martin Valhalla will surpass figures shown in today’s hypercar world, underlining its own elite status.
Strictly limited to 500 coupes worldwide, the programme remains oversubscribed as Aston Martin continues to handpick the final lucky customers who will have the opportunity to own this extraordinary machine.
