Last month, Aston Martin showcased its ultimate version of the Valkyrie, featuring input from Sebastian Vettel, Lance Stroll and the Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team, and the Valhalla follows a similar philosophy of car design.
First revealed as a concept car at the Geneva Motor Show in 2019, the Valhalla has continued to evolve, and now incorporates Formula One expertise into its chassis, aerodynamics and electronics.
Further Formula One advances can be found in its push-rod front suspension, which features as part of an innovative packaging solution around the carbon fibre tub, helping to keep the car’s weight as low as 1550kg.
Featuring a cutting-edge hybrid powertrain, the Valhalla balances instant electric torque from the 150kW battery hybrid system with the force of a four-litre, twin-turbo V8 engine for a total output of 950bhp, managed by an all-new eight-speed transmission designed specifically for the future hybrid era.
It means the Valhalla could lap the Nürburgring in under six minutes and 30 seconds thanks to a 0-62mph time of 2.5 seconds and top speed of 330km/h (217mph).
Its performance is boosted by an array of active aerodynamics, most notably in the front surfaces and rear wing, in addition to facets improving underbody airflow, combining to create 600kg of downforce at 150mph for ultimate stability.
Dynamic development of the Valhalla will be complemented by Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team drivers Sebastian, Lance and Nico Hülkenberg.
