Aston Martin’s Valhalla Is A Carbon Fiber Hypercar Built For The Gods

Originally unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show under the code name AM-RB 003, there’s been a lot of buildup and speculation surrounding Aston Martin’s “baby Valkyrie.” But now the mid-engine hypercar is officially going into production with a heavenly name: Valhalla.

Built in collaboration with Red Bull Advanced Technologies and Adrian Newey, the Valhalla takes its naming tradition from Norse mythology, same as the Valkyrie before it. And, based on what we know so far, it’s more than appropriate. You see, this magnificent chariot hinges on radical aerodynamics and an ultra-lightweight construction — including an all-carbon fiber body. It is also said to be powered by a hybrid powertrain that includes a high-output turbocharged V6 engine alongside a battery-electric system, although performance figures have yet to be unveiled. Another brilliant addition to Aston Martin’s legendary lineup of ‘V’ cars, the Valhalla will be limited to just 500 examples.
