The Valkyrie and Valhalla Engines Sing a Song of Ice and Fire as They Dance on the Race Track

Aston Martin has shown the first rollout of the new Valhalla supercar accompanied by a camouflaged Valkyrie hypercar.

The hybrid supercar Aston Martin Valhalla was designed by the British together with the F1 Red Bull Racing engineers, so it is in its element on the race track. In order not to be alone on the Silverstone track, Valhalla has taken flight alongside the brand's new flagship, the Valkyrie hypercar.

A pair of the most anticipated Aston Martin cars with a total cost of about $4.5 million – the Valhalla and Valkyrie — held a test race on the British Silverstone circuit.

While the manufacturer does not disclose the Valhalla characteristics, it is only known that the highlight of the model will be active aerodynamics and the hybrid powertrain will be based on a twin-turbocharged V6 of the company's own design.

Aston Martin positions the Valhalla as a counterpart to the Porsche 918 Spyder and the Ferrari LaFerrari.

According to unconfirmed information, the Valhalla powertrain will exceed a power output of 1000 hp with a curb weight of 1350 kilograms.

The Aston Martin Valkyrie will be powered by a 6.5-litre Cosworth V12 naturally aspirated engine. The manufacturer claims that this is the most powerful naturally aspirated engine on the market today. It produces 1146 hp and 900 Nm. The Valhalla engine will work as part of a hybrid powertrain, so its performance should be even higher.

The British manufacturer will release 500 units of the Valhalla. The first buyers will get their cars in 2021. The Valkyrie will be released in the amount of 150 units this year.
