Aston Martin Valhalla
POWERTRAIN – A POWERTRAIN TO POWER THE NEXT GENERATION
The beating heart of Valhalla is its all-new PHEV powertrain with a rear-mounted 4.0 litre twin-turbo bespoke V8 engine. This is the most advanced, responsive and highest-performing V8 engine ever fitted to an Aston Martin, revving to 7200rpm and developing over 800PS.
The power of the new V8 engine is intensified by a 150kW/400V battery hybrid system, contributing a further 204PS for a combined power output of over 1,000PS. Once unleashed, Valhalla can soar to 217mph with a 0-62mph in just 2.5 seconds.
Built around a full carbon fibre tub for maximum stiffness and minimum weight, Valhalla has a target dry weight of less than 1550kg. Taking learnings from our Formula 1® involvement and ensuring unparalled driving dynamics it features, Formula 1® style push rod front suspension, compete with inboard springs and dampers, reducing unsprung mass and providing the most efficient packaging solution. This is complemented with high performance carbon ceramic matrix brakes, ensuring exceptional stopping power when needed and supported by Valhalla’s uniquely developed Michelin tyres.
A silhouette to suit a masterpiece. Combining extreme performance with exquisite proportions and a bold, futuristic sculpture for the first car of its kind. Valhalla’s smooth design blend function and form in a style befitting the new generation of mid-engine supercars. The low, wide and muscular exterior has been designed to emphasise its epic presence but while expertly manipulating the air around the cabin and towards the rear wing. Not a single surface working in isolation, each and every design feature also has a function.
The distinctive roof scoop feeds air directly into the intakes of the V8 engine while the front splitter and vaned grille provide both aerodynamic functionality and a nod to our heritage of design DNA. The striking adaptable rear wing, rises and pivots when needed to increase downforce, working simultaneously with the sculpted carbon fibre diffuser to keep this supercar planted to the road. This is a supercar designed for performance.
The interior while seemingly a luxurious cockpit, is so much more. Inspired by that of a Formula 1® car, the driving position places the driver close to Valhalla’s centre line with a low hip-to-heel ratio for the ultimate control and apex ergonomics for the perfect driver alignment. Valhalla’s interior is born from the ultimate driver centric design to give absolute connectivity for the mastery of driving.
