Aston Martin Valhalla, the new plug-in hybrid super sports car is served

In Norse mythology, the “Valhalla” is a majestic and huge hall located in Ásgarðr, the divine world ruled by Odin. In the Aston Martin vocabulary, on the other hand, it indicates the new mid-engine model of the British manufacturer. The stylistic approach derives from that of the even more exasperated Valkyrie, from which the Valhalla also inherits the aerodynamic sophistication. Just 500 units will be produced, each sold at a price of around 1.25 million euros.

At the front you can recognize the typical Aston Martin grille, the only classic element of a car body where aerodynamic appendages, splitters and extractors dominate: this results in approximately 600 kg of vertical load. Built around a sophisticated carbon fiber monocoque (which helps to limit mass to 1,550 kg), the car is powered by a plug-in hybrid powertrain (i.e. rechargeable from an external power source): it results from the synergy of a V8 twin-turbo with four liters of displacement, with 750 HP of power, and two additional electric motors, positioned on both axles, so as to be able to count on four-wheel drive.

The total power reaches 950 HP, while the engine torque amounts to 1,000 Nm. The transmission yields an eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Thanks to the electrified technology, the car can drive with zero emissions up to a speed of 130 km / h for a maximum of 15 km. Impressive performances: the British racing car goes from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.5 seconds and reaches a maximum peak of 330 km / h. Numbers that, together with the sophisticated aerodynamics, would allow the car to complete a lap of the old Nürburgring circuit in a time of 6’30 ”.

Also thanks to technical merits such as the push rod front suspensions – similar to those seen in Formula 1 – the adjustable set-up (also in height), the carbon-ceramic braking system and the specially developed 20 “and 21” Michelin tires. . Finally, as on racing cars, the seat is fixed: the steering wheel and pedal set translate to adapt to the rider’s measurements. The interiors have yet to be revealed, which in any case will be able to count on an advanced infotelematic system, probably equipped with specific telemetry functions.
