Aston Martin has unveiled the production version of the Valhalla hypercar, which received a 937 horsepower V8 hybrid engine. It is expected that the newest car will be able to complete the circle of the Nurburgring in just 6 minutes 30 seconds.

Back in March 2019, Aston Martin announced its intention to launch a supercar by unveiling its concept version of the AM-RB 003 at the Geneva Motor Show. Two and a half years later, the name of the car was changed to Valhalla and it received a production version. While it is still electrified like the original 2019 car, significant changes have been made to its exterior.

In addition, there is no longer the 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine announced in March 2020 as Aston Martin’s own development – it has been replaced by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8. It is billed as a “bespoke V8 engine”.

It boasts a flat crankshaft, which makes us think it is related to the V8 found in the AMG GT Black Series.

After all, the British brand claims that “the most advanced and high-performance V8 engine ever installed in Aston Martin” reaches 7200 rpm, which is the same as the Black Series engine.

Transferring power to the rear wheels, the combustion engine is powered by a pair of electric motors, one for each axle. The electric motor is rated at 201 hp. and helps Valhalla deliver a total of 937 hp. and a whopping 1,000 Nm of torque. The hybrid powertrain allows the latest supercar Aston Martin to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in two and a half seconds and reach a top speed of 330 km / h.

Perhaps even more impressive in terms of performance is the Nürburgring’s target lap time of just 6 minutes 30 seconds. That’s 13 seconds short of the current record, which coincidentally belongs to the AMG GT Black Series.

Not so long ago, we wrote that Aston Martin introduced a new Valkyrie AMR Pro hypercar with a capacity of 1000 horsepower. A few days after a photo of the mysterious Aston Martin Valkyrie was leaked, the British automaker has officially unveiled the new and improved Valkyrie AMR Pro.
