The British brand first presented the Valhalla in 2019 as a prototype with the name AM-RB 003. Since then, it has not failed to periodically publish details and images from the development of its hybrid supercar. It is precisely in this category that Valhalla’s latest series of images from the Silverstone circuit, where it is traveling the final kilometers of its development ahead of the start of production which has been announced to start in 2024 and will be limited to just 999 examples, belong.
The “good” news is that it will cost significantly less than the 2.9 million euros of the unreal Valkyrie. To note, as far as Aston Martin’s electric counterattack is concerned, in addition to the hybrid Valhalla, the British brand is preparing its first purely electric vehicle for 2025.
As Aston Martin has already announced, the Valhalla, which is practically Aston Martin’s first step towards electrification, is equipped with a combination of a 4.0-liter V8 and a triplet of electric motors, two mounted on the front axle and one integrated into the system transmission.
As a result, the combined power amounts to 1,012 hp while it is worth noting that the two front electric motors also take on the role of the torque management system and are also responsible for the reverse as for reasons of keeping the weight low, there is no corresponding relationship in the box.
Of course, given the multitude of engines, four-wheel drive will be equally a given, while as the latest images confirm, it will have a number of active aerodynamic elements, including a not inconsiderable size adjustable wing which contributes, together with the rest of the design elements, to the production of vertical force of up to 600 kg at a speed of 240 km/h. In fact, as Aston Martin has announced, the Valhalla’s aerodynamics have been developed over hundreds of hours in the wind tunnel with the input of F1 aerodynamicists.
