The planned V-12 hybrid powered Valkyrie’s successor, Aston Martin AM-RB 003 has gotten its new fantastic official name: Valhalla. The Valkyrie and Valhalla share similar origin from the Norse Mythology, a name accorded to the widely celebrated hall in Asgard, warrior’s ancient paradise.
The new name is among the most recent Aston Martin’s lineup of names that start with letter “V”. Its history dates back to 70 years ago starting with the Vantage, which is the DB2 high performing model, which later continued with subsequent models such as Virage, Volante, Vanquish, Vulcan and the Valkyrie.
With a breathtaking and stylish interior and exterior design, the Valhalla is a worthy successor to the Valkyrie
It was made in a joint effort with Red Bull Advanced Technologies and Adrian Newey, who happens to be F1 legend. 500 units of this Valhalla Coupe version will be manufactured. The Valhalla, just like its predecessor, Valkyrie, will make use of advanced lightweight fiber-intensive carbon construction.
This is an adapted design from Valkyrie. Don’t expect any extreme technology as the automaker is prepared to make it an everyday car. There is provision for luggage space and phone mount placed on the dash.

The revolutionary Nexcel 90-second oil change system of Castro will be deployed on it, which will make it the very first production car to have such.
Though the Aston Martin Valhalla is set to hit the road by 2021, the automaker is yet to reveal the pricing. It is expected to be less expensive than the $3 million Valkyrie.
