Aston Martin Valhalla Price
Aston Martin Valhalla REVIEW IN CANADA
Aston Martin has long been associated with high-end performance, elegance, and luxury. And its newest offering, the Aston Martin Valhalla, makes that fact even more clear than ever before. The Valhalla has been dubbed the future of luxury performance by Aston Martin itself. It’s everything you could want in an ultra-high-end sports car – but more than that, it brings something new to the table as well.
ENGINE AND PERFORMANCE
The Aston Martin Valhalla is a mid-engined V6 plug-in hybrid supercar manufactured by Aston Martin and producing 1,000 hp of maximum power. It is a car initially known as project AM-RB 003 given its development in collaboration with Red Bull. The philosophy of this car is to offer an approach very similar to that of the Aston Martin Valykrie, but on a smaller scale in terms of size, performance and price.
The Aston Martin Valhalla will be a hybrid plug-in vehicle, harnessing the might of a newly manufactured V6 Twin-Turbo engine with one or more electric motors. They’ll all work in tandem thanks to an electrical system supported by lithium ion batteries. The maximum power output for this set is 1,000 horsepower combined and four wheel drive. The gearbox is sequential with 8 gears taken from Formula One single seater cars – really quick!
1,300kgs may sound heavy when you think about it but when you look at how much heavier the Valkyrie was yet achieved greatness because of its lightweight carbon fibre body then you start seeing things differently.
The exterior design of the Valhalla is essentially a reproduction of the Valkyrie with some adjustments for less emphasis on aerodynamics, although it remains an integral part of its overall appearance.
Designed by by Adrian Newey who sought to offer something simpler but still representative of what made the Valkyrie so great. Points such as the huge rear diffuser or the design of air vents behind the front wheel arches are clear indications of how much attention was paid to aerodynamics during its development process.
For the interior design of the Valhalla, the British manufacturer will seek to offer a much more spacious and comfortable cabin than that seen in the Valkyrie. The most significant feature lies in its 2-seat configuration with higher dimensions for an increased amount of comfort. With these upgrades come additional luxuries such as air vents, racing seats, and steering wheel stitching with leather grip trimming.
Aston Martin Valhalla VERDICT
With names like Valkyrie and Rapide, Aston Martin models are typically associated with unrivaled speed and sophisticated design. But what comes next? To answer that question, the company has been working on a project called Valhalla, designed to give the luxury car maker an edge in the future of performance vehicles, whether they be electric or fully-fledged petrol burners.
