Both will have the same crank engine, which is a flat plane.
While it’s true that the DBX has become the primary driving factor behind Aston Martin’s sales surge, the performance cars will remain as the mainstay of the marque’s Gaydon base. The SUV is spawning an even faster version with nearly 700 horsepower and the ability to get from the acceleration of 60 mph from 0 in only 3.1 seconds. About the new DBX707, the company held an open forum with journalists to discuss its Bentayga Speed competitor and discuss possible future product launches.
Tobias Moers, Aston Martin CEO and former AMG mind honcho, informed us that Valhalla would be here shortly. The AM-RB003 concept was unveiled in March 2019 before being revealed in July of last year. Based on the German executive, the production model is expected to be available in 2024 and have the same drivetrain as the company’s entry-level supercar, the Vanquish.

For a refresh to refresh, the Vanquish was introduced as a concept vehicle in March 2019, with an overhaul that was radical compared to previous models by adopting a mid-engined design. The Vanquish also had the turbocharged V6 component of its hybrid engine. Moers said to Motor1.com that the production model was set to be available in 2025, which is about one year after Valhalla. The two types will soon be discussing the same flat-plane crank engine that the company itself will construct.
This reminds everyone that Valhalla has dropped the concept’s twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine in favor of the more powerful twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 with an asymmetrical crankshaft. When Aston Martin released images and information about their production models, the company did not mention the combustion engine’s connection to Mercedes-AMG’s machine that is part of the Black Series. With Moers today announcing that the gasoline mill will continue to be produced within AM, it is likely that the British brand is handling the majority (if it’s not entirely) part of the job itself.

Along with an electric motor, The Valhalla was claimed to have 937 horsepower (699 Kilowatts) and 738 pounds-feet (1,000 Newton-meters) in torque. The V8 can rev up 7200 rpm, matching it with the Black Series’ redline. The hybrid punch was said to accelerate the sub-Valkyrie up to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) at 2.5 seconds before reaching 217 speeds (350 kilometers/hour).
Valkyrie hypercar. At the bottom of the Supercar String, the Vanquish isn’t going to be able to meet the numbers of performance and output. They’re far from being completed, which means a lot could happen between the 2024/2025 timeframe. It appears Aston Martin is determined to introduce a pair of supercars in addition to Valkyrie.
