Sensational hybrid supercar, defining the mastery of driving

WHEELS: Aston Martin Valhalla

Development of the Valhalla is being helped by Aston F1 drivers Nico Hulkenberg, Lance Stroll and Sebastian Vettel. Aston isn’t saying anything about when the Valhalla will go on sale or how many will be built. (The original plan was for just 500 units, but that was years ago.) We don’t know how much it will cost, either, though you can expect a price tag well into the six-figure range.

The brakes are carbon-ceramics and the Valhalla has 20-inch front wheels and 21-inch rears that are wrapped in Michelin tires made specifically for this car. The electric power steering is said to provide “immediate and intuitive” responses, with Aston adding that an “uncorrupted” connection between driver and car was the goal.

The LED matrix headlights are adaptive and have automatic high-beams, and a surround-view camera system is optional.

Aston says the Valhalla generates 1,322 pounds of downforce, with the carbon-fiber body having been aerodynamically optimized with inspiration taken from F1.

At the beating heart of Valhalla is its all-new PHEV powertrain, which features three motors; foremost of these is a rear-mid-mounted 4.0 litre twin-turbo bespoke V8 engine. The most advanced, responsive and highest performing V8 engine ever fitted to an Aston Martin, revving to 7200rpm and developing 750PS.

Supplementing this new V8 engine is a 150kW/400V battery hybrid system, contributing a further 204PS. When driven in EV mode battery power is directed exclusively to the front axle; in other driving modes battery power is split between front and rear axles. In certain situations, 100% of battery power can be sent to the rear axle, supplementing with the full force of the ICE V8 for maximum performance.

Running in EV-only mode, Valhalla will be capable of a maximum 80 mph / 130km/h and has a zero-emission range of 15km. Predicted CO2 (WLTP) is less than 200g/km. Unleashing all 950PS the Valhalla will reach a top speed of 217mph / 330km/h and will complete the sprint from 0-62mph in just 2.5 seconds.
