Aston Martin Valhalla In Action on the Racetrack For the First Time

Aston’s Vallhalla Takes On Silverstone

To celebrate Aston’s debut of the Valhalla in North America, the company decided to showcase a video of its new car tearing around Silverstone. The video was shown at The Quail. In the video, the Valhall and the Valkyrie both shoot around the track looking like they’re right where they belong. 

The video is less than a minute long and goes by way too quickly. We could sit around a watch these things on the racetrack all day long. Still, it’s nice to see the Valhalla and Valkyrie doing their thing. The Valhalla in the video is what the company calls a dynamic concept. That means they’re still tweaking the car as it gets closer to the end of development. 

The Valhalla and Valkyrie are similar cars in many ways, but the Valhalla is designed to be a bit more livable day-to-day whereas the Valkyrie is a hardcore track monster. This is evident just by looking at them. The Valhalla is smoother and softer. It’s door entry and egress is a little easier to handle, and the interior is a little more spacious and comfortable. 

While Aston hasn’t said exactly what the car’s performance will be, it has said the vehicle will get a turbocharged V6 engine that should put power out to all four wheels. The power number is supposed to be around 1,000 hp. This should make the car good for a 0-60 mph time of about 2.5 seconds.

Aston Martin Valhalla

Even until now, the fact remains that only society’s elite can afford to own supercars and hypercars. These high-performance automobiles are masterpieces that only the best designers and engineers can manage to create. Now, one British carmaker is preparing a worthy offering that will even tempt the gods. So let’s witness in reverence the impending arrival of the Aston Martin Valhalla. It’s going to be a mythical chariot on track to become a legend. Just one look at its jaw-dropping aesthetics is already giving us goosebumps.

Some of you might recognize it as the AM-RB 003 concept. It made its debut during the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Insiders point out that Aston Martin is naming it Valhalla for a specific reason. Just like the Vantage and the Valkyrie, the brand is reportedly assigning all of its high-performance models names starting with the letter “V” as a tradition. You should know that British Formula One engineer Adrian Newey and Red Bull Advanced Technologies are also on board with the project.

This follow-up to the marque’s first hypercar uses ultra-lightweight materials and exceptional aerodynamics. It appears that the engineers are going with carbon fiber components all around to keep weight to a minimum. Intimate details regarding its powertrain are still under wraps, but it will apparently rely on a crossbred configuration. We’re talking about a high-output, high-efficiency V6 turbocharged petrol engine alongside a hybrid battery-electric system. We’re expecting to see a celestial spec sheet when more details regarding the Aston Martin Valhalla pop up in the future.
