Aston Martin presents the Valhalla

The AM-RB 003 has a name, the latest mid-engined hypercar will be called the Aston Martin Valhalla.

The latest creation from the collaboration between Red Bull Racing and Aston Martin emerges from the shadows. What was codenamed AM-RB 003 will now be called the Aston Martin Valhalla.

Following the naming process of the Valkyrie, the Valhalla is named after something in the Norse mythology. This time around it’s from after the warrior’s paradise.

Powered by a turbocharged V6 petrol engine and battery-electric hybrid system, the Valkyrie’s baby brother will be limited to 500 Coupes.

The latest Aston Martin ‘V’ car is keeping the naming tradition alive. Indeed, the Valhalla continues something that started way back in 1951 with the Vantage.

Aston Martin Lagonda President and Group Chief Executive Officer, Andy Palmer said: “Aston Martin model names always attract a lot of attention. They do so because they invariably capture an emotion or tell a story. In following the Valkyrie we knew the Aston Martin Valhalla needed to make a strong statement of its own, yet also offer continuity and a clear connection. Norse mythology contains such powerful language and rich storytelling it felt only right that the AM-RB 003 should follow the Valkyrie’s theme. For those fortunate enough to own one I’m sure they will recognise and appreciate the name’s connotations of glory and happiness, for there can be few more hallowed places than the driver’s seat of an Aston Martin Valhalla.”
