Aston Martin Valhalla Hypercar

Published By

When Aston Martin debuted this hypercar back in March at the Geneva International Motor Show, it was called the AM-RB 003. It’s now received a proper title, the Valhalla, and you don’t have to be a member of a focus group to know that’s a far better name. Named for the majestic hall in Norse Mythology where slain warriors gather, Valhalla takes its cues and inspiration — both in design and Norse Mythology appellation — from the company’s other mid-engined hybrid hyper car, the Valkyrie.  

Like the Valkyrie, the Valhalla will have a lightweight carbon fiber structure and bodywork, with shared aerodynamic and styling designs. Unlike the Valkyrie, which will be built almost entirely for speed (and in fact a race-prepared version will be taking part in the 2020 FIA World Endurance Championship under the new hypercar category), the Valhalla plans to include a touch more driver comfort, including things like doors that allow easier access, a larger center console and even room for luggage behind the seats. 

It’s powered by a combined turbocharged V6 gas engine and battery-electric motor and features a NASA-validated variable airfoil across the rear wing. Just 500 examples of the Valhalla will be built. And they’re going, well, fast.
