Aston Martin Valhalla Open For Booking In Malaysia
Only five units will be brought in and two have already been booked
It seems the hybrid supercar segment in Malaysia is starting to heat up. Following the arrival of the Ferrari SF90 Stradale in September 2020 and its Spider derivative in June this year, Aston Martin Kuala Lumpur has announced it will join the fray with the recently-unveiled Valhalla.
However, those who wish to get their hands on the Gaydon hybrid supercar need to get their chequebooks out quickly as there are only three units left. According to the company, a total of five units of the Valhalla were allocated for Malaysia and as of today, two have already been spoken for.
The official price for our market has yet to be announced but in its home country, the Valhalla is available at a starting price of GBP600,000 (RM3.5 million) excluding duties, taxes and of course, options.
As a refresher, the Valhalla is powered by a rear-mid-mounted 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8 engine and a pair of electric motors that churn out a whopping combined power output of 950 PS and 1,000 Nm of torque.
The powertrain is completed by an all-new 8-speed DCT transmission driving the rear wheels. There is also an Electronic Limited-Slip Differential (E-Diff) on the rear axle for maximum traction and handling agility.
Performance-wise, the Valhalla is capable of completing the 0-100 km/h sprint in just 2.5 seconds and reaching a top speed of 330 km/h. Running in EV-only mode, it can speed up to 130 km/h and cover as far as 15 km.
On July 15th 2021, Aston Martin officially announced that they brought Valhalla concept car to production as an as an extraordinary, truly driver- focused mid-engined hybrid supercar.
Valhalla heralds a new definition of Aston Martin. With a mid-engined 950PS gasoline/battery electric powertrain, new carbon fibre structure and aerodynamics shaped by the pioneering philosophy first seen in the revolutionary Aston Martin Valkyrie, Valhalla will bring the perfect balance of hypercar performance and advanced powertrain, driving dynamics and uniquely sophisticated design materials to truly redefine the supercar sector.
At the beating heart of Valhalla is its all-new PHEV powertrain, which features three motors; foremost of these is a rear-mid-mounted 4.0 litre twin-turbo bespoke V8 engine. The most advanced, responsive and highest performing V8 engine ever fitted to an Aston Martin, it features a flat-plane crankshaft for increased responsiveness. Revving to 7200rpm and developing 750PS, it sends drive exclusively to the rear axle. Exhaling through a lightweight exhaust system with active flaps for an adjustable and authentic Aston Martin sound character it also features top-exit tailpipes to maximise visual and aural drama.
Valhalla is a new generation Aston Martin, it defines a new driver and driving experience – ‘the Mastery of Driving’, a true ultra-luxury, exclusive, British supercar. Valhalla is limited to only 5 units in Malaysia, whereby 2 out of 5 units are already booked as of today.
Aston Martin Valhalla is now available for booking, estimated around GBP 600,000 (excluding duties and taxes). For more information, please contact us call +60 3 2163 1196 or email to [email protected]
