Aston Martin Valhalla: 937 horsepower plug-in supercar with AMG V8

Aston Martin Teasing, talking The mid-engined Valhalla hybrid supercar has been around for the last few years. The prototype in the prototype stage is That James Bond movie It was supposed to come out like it was a year and a half ago. Unfortunately, I have no time to die Finally released in October, 007’s silver-squinted Valhalla looks a bit out of date with Aston’s release of the completed street-ready version.

In reality, and finally, this is an Aston Martin Valhalla sold to the wealthy public, which, of course, looks a bit brilliant for a British supercar with over 900 horsepower. Larger headlights, a Vantage-like front grille, and a more generally production-friendly look than the prototype, the final Valhalla looks more recognizable to Aston, and to my eyes more than that. It is excellent.

AMG-Derived Power

Behind the cabin is a 4.0-liter twin-turbo flat-plane crank V8 that spins at 7,200 rpm and produces 740 hp on its own, powering only the rear axle. Putting Valhalla’s two electric motors into the mix gives a total output of 937hp and 738lb-force torque that raises the eyebrows. One of these e-motors helps the internal combustion engine move the rear wheels, and the other is dedicated to the front wheels.

Now we know what you are thinking. "Given the Partnership between the two companiesShould the twin-turbo flat-plane V8 be a unit supplied by Mercedes-AMG?" If that may be the case, it’s not groundless.After all, even Valhalla’s 4.0-liter and its electrification system certainly "Derived" From the AMG GT Black Series and AMG Tech engines, respectively, it seems that they have been modified enough for Balhara to make Aston feel confident in calling the powertrain. "Made-to-order."

In any case, the AMG-derived engine is connected to a brand new 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox. "Made-to-order" Equipped with an electronic limited slip differential. Active Aero is suitable for downforce of £ 1,322 at 150 mph. The resulting linear performance is 0-62 mph, 2.5 seconds per hour, and a top speed of 217 mph.

Grand Prix Engineering

Chassis, aero, and electronics technologies have been refined through the company’s F1 operations, with new carbon fiber tabs at the center of everything. F1 style push rod front and multimatic adaptive rear suspension keep things up when the truck twists. The brake-by-wire system secures carbon ceramic stoppers, and the Michelin tires specially made for this car are 20 inches in the front and 21 inches in the rear.

Aston also it Targeting Nürburgring time is less than 6:30, Manthey Porsche 911 GT2 RS— The record holder for Nordschleife’s current production vehicles — by a fairly wide margin. Publishing a targeting time that you haven’t actually achieved yet seems like a suspicious move from a public relations perspective, but it goes there. Speaking of statistics of interest, Aston is also aiming for a dry curb weight of less than 3,417 pounds.

Valhalla features an active exhaust system at the top exit while we talk about floating in the air. That alone will definitely make this car cool.

Despite the goals of F1 engineering and the lofty Nürburgring, Aston says Valhalla is not a soulless tech fest. Mark claims that it was built with the driver’s enjoyment in mind.

The feet are raised to make Valhalla’s driving position feel like an F1 car.

However, if you’re not always driving Valhalla for fun, it seems pretty comfortable to live in. Believe it or not, this car has an EV mode that delegates all the moving work to the electric front axle, making it an effective front-wheel drive car. With electricity alone, Valhalla can travel up to 80 mph and has an official range of 9 mph. Available in left-hand or right-hand drive, this Aston features dual-zone climate control and state-of-the-art Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) such as active cruises, forward collisions and blind spot monitoring. Aston Martin hasn’t annoyingly released a photo of the inside, but a new infotainment system is running Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

It’s a long way to go and I’m happy to finally see Valhalla in the final production specs, but there’s still a lot to learn. We still don’t know what the interior will look like, how much it will cost, and, of course, how it will actually drive. But we are definitely looking forward to finding it.
