Aston Martin Unveils The Production Form Of Its 940HP Hybrid Valhalla Hypercar

Jul 19, 2021

With little exception, concept cars rarely reach production form as they were originally envisioned — their outlandish designs aren’t usually based in reality. However, where most are made worse by their transformation from render to road vehicle, Aston Martin has actually changed the Valhalla for the better.

For starters, the gaping front bumper has been replaced by AM’s signature horizontal grilling, flowing into a set of fenders and air intakes à la its more powerful Valkyrie cousin. Combined with a set of active aero elements up front, some underbody Venturi wind tunnels, and a massive adjustable rear wing, it can generate up to 1,322lbs of downforce. Not bad, considering its carbon-tub construction means it weighs less than 3,418lbs dry. But that’s not all; the Valhalla also ditches the planned twin-turbo V6 in favor of a 740hp twin-turbo 4.0L V8. Working in conjunction with a pair of electric motors good for a further 200hp (940 total HP), it’ll take you to 0-62mph in just 2.5s before climbing to a top speed of 217mph. Oh, and where the concept was intended to be a multimillion-dollar limited-run vehicle, the production version will be comparatively more accessible. Pricing has yet to be announced, so we’ll have to wait and see.
