110 Special Valours for Aston Martin Commemoration of Its 110 Anniversary

Special BEAST - Aston Martin is celebrating its 110th anniversary by presenting the Aston Martin Valour as a special gift to speed enthusiasts worldwide. This wild-wheeled beast made official debuts at the prestigious 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The Valour, a new supercar from the Gaydon-based car maker, marks a century of consistently delivering luxury-performance cars. According to Aston Martin's chief executive, Lawrence Stroll, "Valour represents a new image for Aston Martin as a modern icon, done in a modern way."

Remaining true to the brand's legacy, the Valour will offer elegance and Aston Martin's signature high performance. With only 110 units produced globally, this special 4-wheeled beast could be sure become a coveted collector's item.

In terms of design, the Valour stands out from other models with its stiff, firm, and aggressive exterior. Drawing inspiration from the V8 Vantage styling of the 1970s and 1980s, the front fascia exudes a retro nuance with its round lights.

Built with carbon fiber body panels, the Valour boasts aerodynamic lines, large wings, and a "double bubble" roof. The front features horseshoe-shaped air intakes and a NACA air scoop on the hood, flanked by round LED headlights similar to the Mustang GT. At the rear, the Valour showcases exo blade fins on the rear window and a Kamma tail. Then the three exhaust tips protruding between the rear diffuser fins differentiate it from the Vantage.

One unique aspect of this British-made supercar is the availability of a manual transmission, setting it apart from its V12-powered sibling, the Vantage. Under the hood, the Valour packs a 5.2-liter V12 engine capable of producing around 714 hp and 752 Nm of torque. It delivers power to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transmission system.

For passionate sporty driving, the Aston Martin Valour offers three driving modes - "Sport," "Sport+," and "Track" - each providing different effects, from performance reaction to the resulting tones, catering to different driving preferences.

Aston Martin has not yet released performance details, but considering the Vantage's impressive numbers - reaching 0-100 kph in 3.4 seconds with a top speed of 322 kph - it's safe to assume that the Valour won't be far behind, given that they both share V12 engines.

Despite its retro appeal, the Valour is equipped with modern features, including dampers on the power steering system to aid in controlling the supercar. Carbon ceramic brakes, with 16-inch discs at the front and 14-inch rotors at the rear, ensure excellent stopping power. 

Stepping into the cockpit, Valour's styling and interior layout are reminiscent of the Vantage, with some subtle differences. The dashboard's air vents feature a more minimalist design, and the center console is tailored to accommodate the 6-speed manual gearbox, combining metal and wood elements for a unique and luxurious look.

The seats and door panels also showcase a distinctive design crafted from carbon fiber, commonly used in modern sports cars. The sports seats in the Valour are adorned with knitted wool, drawing inspiration from the Aston Martin DBR1 racing car that triumphed at the 24-Hours of Le Mans in 1959.
For those interested, the Aston Martin Valour is priced between £1 million to £1.5 million (approximately Rp. 19.4 billion to Rp. 29.2 billion). Deliveries are expected to begin at the end of 2023, so don't miss out on the opportunity to own this extraordinary and potentially rare collector's item. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ASTONMARTIN | CARSCOOPS | AUTOCAR ]
