Aston Martin Valhalla introduces 950 hp plug-in hybrid powertrain in production mode Technology News, Firstpost

The 2019 Aston Martin Valhalla concept has finally turned into a production car that is quite far from the concept, but is said to be almost 95 percent close to finished. We then have a mid-engined, carbon-tube Aston Martin car that sits below the Valkyrie and pushes a plug-in hybrid, an AMG source, dual-turbo V8 power – all 950 hp and 1000 Nm – all four wheels through the house developed an eight-speed DCT: n, who debuted with Valhalla. It all leads to the expected 2.5 seconds of 0-100 km / h and a top speed of 350 km / h north.

Importantly, the price of Aston Martin Valhalla is expected to be EUR 580,000 (approximately SEK 5.1), which is approximately less than half of what Aston originally borrowed – and will not be sold in limited quantities. In fact, Valhalla is likely to preview future electrified Astons better than anything else so far, including the V12-powered Valkyrie. The Aston Martin Valhalla will go into production in 2022 and beat the blows of the “small” car in the assembly, the new generation Aston Martin Vantage, which is due to be completed in 2025, in a few years.

Much of these changes are due to Aston Martin’s new CEO, Tobias Moers, former CEO of Mercedes-AMG, including the transition from a custom-built V6 to Valhalla to an AMG-acquired flatbed crank V8 otherwise seen in the Mercedes-AMG GT Black series, which Aston claims to use custom tuning, engine management and mounts to produce 750 hp and over 7200 rpm red line! Two electric motors – one on each axle – provide an extra 200 hp for the main character, and the Aston Martin Valhalla is capable of electric alone (front wheel only in EV mode only) at speeds of up to 13 km / h up to 130 km / h.

The concept’s Le Mans prototype style has been modified to create better connections to Aston’s Valkyrie and also get much more aerodynamic-enhancing details on the hood, fenders and rear edge. With the help of Valhalla, Aston is aiming for more than 600 kg downstream at 241 km / h – and a 6-minute 31-second lap time at the Nurburgring Nordschleife, making it the fastest production car on the Ring. The target weight of 1550 kg means that it compares quite favorably with its natural competitors, the Ferrari SF90 and the recently announced McLaren Artura.
