For all of the overwhelming design and impressive promised performance of the upcoming hypercar from Aston Martin and Red Bull, it has had until now a serious name. AM-RB 001 never really rolled off the tongue, nor did it evoke power and attraction like past Aston Martin names, such as Vanquish. But Aston has firm that with the car’s new name, Valkyrie.

It’s a solid name, one that comes from Norse mythology. Not solely that, but it continues Aston’s use of names starting with “V” (Vantage, Virage, Vulcan, et al). It’s also way easier to say than the serial several that was the old name.

We’re looking forward to getting the full official specs, too. So far, we be inf it will have a V12, and the company is aiming for a one horsepower to one kilogram power-to-cross ratio, similar to that of the Koenigsegg One:1. We’ve also heard that Aston wish sell just 175 cars, with each running about $3 million.
