Aston Martin Valhalla


The 2024 Aston Martin Valhalla will be a mid-engine hypercar with a hybrid powertrain in the vein of the Ferrari SF90. The Aston’s exterior boasts an exaggerated version of the company’s grille along with slippery bodywork and a carbon-fiber engine cover. Carbon fiber also makes up its central tub, and the Valhalla’s exotic nature will be further accentuated by its dihedral doors. Power comes from a twin-turbo V-8 (sourced from Mercedes-AMG) and a plug-in hybrid system that together generates 937 horsepower. Aston estimates a top speed of 217 mph and a 2.5-second zero-to-62-mph time. The 2022 Valhalla will also have an EV mode, albeit with a very short all-electric range.

What’s New for 2024?

After changes of Aston Martin CEO, New CEO who was previously the head of Mercedes-AMG, the Valhalla will be much different than the version that was previously teased as the 003 and briefly codenamed AM-RB 003. While there’s still much we have to learn, the actual version will have an AMG-sourced engine and a six-digit price tag instead of a seven-digit one. It also won’t start being delivered to customers until the second half of 2023–likely making it a 2024 model.


Aston Martin will build no more than 999 Valhallas, and each will cost about $800,000. We’re still hopeful Aston will make an open-top version, too. Not that we could afford it.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The Valhalla will feature a powerful plug-in-hybrid powertrain. At its core will be a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 with an exotic flat-plane-crank design that’s sourced from Mercedes-AMG. It’ll feed the rear wheels through an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Additionally, an electric motor will power the front wheels and another will be integrated into the transmission. Valhalla’s combined output is said to be 937 horsepower. Its electrically assisted gearbox will also have an electric reverse as well as an electronically controlled limited-slip rear differential. To save weight, the company will use carbon fiber for the car’s structure. It’ll also feature adaptive dampers and two-stage springs that can be adjusted for an ultra-low track mode. Plus, carbon-ceramic brakes will be standard. We can only assume the Valhalla’s eye-popping design will be complemented by out-of-this-world handling.

Infotainment and Connectivity

All that we know about Valhalla’s infotainment system is that it’ll support Aston’s upcoming user interface, which will be the first to feature a touchscreen. Of course, we also expect it to offer desirable software such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Likewise, built-in navigation and a powerful audio system should be available.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The Valhalla will have a host of driver assists that are commonly seen on less extreme machines. While it’ll also feature conventional side mirrors, they’ll be supplemented by a camera-based rearview display inside the cabin.
