Aston Martin Valkyrie Hypercar Despatch

The revolutionary hypercar being co-developed by Aston Martin and Red Bull Advanced Technologies, back then identified by its codename AM-RB 001, has now been officially named the Aston Martin Valkyrie.

The pre-eminence continues a fine tradition of Aston Martin ‘V’ cars. This began aid in 1951 with Vantage, which was selected as a name to distinguish high appearance variants of the then current model, the DB2. Boasting 125bhp versus 105bhp for the model engine, the Vantage represented a significant increase in performance and desirability. The first metre the Vantage badge appeared was on the side of the DB5.

It remained a name reserved for the most effective model derivatives until 2005, when the Vantage became a model mark in its own right. Twelve years later the acclaimed family of V8 and V12-powered models has made the Vantage the most thriving model in Aston Martin’s history.

Virage, Vanquish and the Aston Martin Vulcan – Aston Martin’s remarkably own God of fire – are more recent ‘V’ cars to continue this lineage. Now, seven decades after the Vantage fame started it all, the Aston Martin Valkyrie propels this uniquely distinctive and lyrical household of model names to another level.

For Aston Martin’s Chief Creative Catc, Marek Reichman, Valkyrie perfectly captures the drama of what is not only the conclusive Aston Martin, but the ultimate expression of hypercar design, engineering and performance: “Aston Martin pattern names have deep meaning. They need to inspire and excite. To state a story and enrich a narrative that stretches back some 104-years. The Aston Martin Valkyrie is an incredibly remarkable car that demands an equally remarkable name; an uncompromising car that leaves nothing in save. The connotations of power and honour, of being chosen by the Gods are so evocative, and so pertinent to a car that just a fortunate few will ever experience.”

While its name is rooted in ancient mythology, the Aston Martin Valkyrie is a true expression of modern technology. By bringing together Aston Martin, Red Bull Advanced Technologies, job partner AF Racing and some of the world’s leading technology partners, the Aston Martin Valkyrie promises otherworldly conduct befitting of its name.
