Two years after Aston Martin started striking, however clumsily named AM-RB 003 concept, the final production version has arrived under a much simpler name: Valhalla.
The carmaker unveiled the hybrid supercar on Thursday ahead of this weekend’s British Grand Prix, where Aston Martin will compete as a manufacturer for the first time in more than 60 years. Aston Martin returned to F1 this year with a team sponsored by Cognizant, a professional service provider at Casey Newton Center. multi-part investigation Facebook content the problem of moderation. In 2020, the company was Canadian billionaire Lawrence Stroll took over, the actual villain from Netflix’s third season Drive to survive series.
The walk walked away with Aston Martin after a dramatic show with Geely (China’s largest private automaker) who had submitted a competing bid to a struggling luxury car maker. Stroll’s first move was to delay some of Aston Martin’s electric vehicle projects. So the fact that the Valhalla project survived the turbulence is its own little miracle.
Anyway … in the car! It is a 937-horsepower hybrid beast with a top speed of 217 miles per hour and the ability to ascend from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in less than 62 seconds. It does this by combining a 740-horsepower twin-turbo V8 engine with a pair of electric motors (one for each axle) and utilizing active aerodynamics in the front and rear spoiler of the car as well as in the tunnels under the car. can control flight tricks developed by Aston Martin Valkyrie, the forerunner of Valhalla.
The body, mostly made of carbon fiber, keeps things light enough at 1,550 pounds (3,417 pounds), although the design has more corners and corners than can be found in the very smooth Valkyrie.

(Unfortunately, the company did not publish pictures of the cab.)
Overall, Valhalla looks like it fits well with some other hybrid supercars, such as Ferrarin SF90 Stradale, whatever it is worth. Very few are manufactured and cost an astronomical amount. For most of us, it’s just something silly.
However, given Aston Martin’s recent history, it may not surprise you that this car has one last little intrigue. The internal combustion engine comes from Mercedes-Benz, which supplies the overall powertrain to Aston Martin’s F1 team. Makes me think what the brake channels look like…
