Valhalla is official name for Aston Martin AM-RB 003

As we have discussed in the previous article (here), the hypercar of collaboration result between Aston Martin, Red Bull Advanced Technologies and Adrian Newey, previously known as the codename 'AM-RB 003,' is now officially named Aston Martin Valhalla.

The 'Valhalla' name was taken from ancient Nordic mythology for the Viking warrior’s paradise, as well as joins a legacy of Aston Martin models with names starting with the letter 'V,' which also includes V8, Vantage, Virage, Vanquish, Vulcan, Valkyrie and the Volante designation for convertible models.

"The Aston Martin model names always attract a lot of attention. They do it because they always capture emotions or tell a story," said Andy Palmer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Aston Martin Lagonda Group.

Valhalla will use a newly-developed in-house hybrid turbo V6 engine which are claimed to be capable of spraying up to 1,000 horsepower. That means the car will indirectly become an All Wheel Drive driven car. The engine used is different from the engine used by the Valkyrie which uses a 6.5 liter naturally aspirated V12 engine.

Not up to that, Valhalla also has a fairly light weight, which is no more than 1,350 kg. This figure is obtained thanks to the use of light materials, such as using a monocoque chassis made of carbon fiber material. If so, this car only takes 2.5 seconds, to accelerate from rest to 100 km/h and will be able to reach topspeed up to 350 km/hr.

As quoted from Jalopnik, Valhalla will be joined as one of the British famous 007's spy agent vehicles in his still-untitled 25th movie. If true, the Valhalla appearance follows in the footsteps of its predecessor Aston Martin V8 Vantage which is also one of the vehicles used by James Bond in 1987's The Living Daylights.
According to an official report of Aston Martin website on Wednesday, these hypercar will be produced in limited numbers, which is only 500 units. And for those of you who are interested in having it, chances are that this British hypercar will be sold at nearly $2 million. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ASTON MARTIN | JALOPNIK | CARSCOOPS]
