Aston Martin Valkyrie Hypercar Offers Staggering Performance Befitting of Its Name

The revolutionary hypercar AM-RB 001, co-created by Aston Martin and Red Bull Advanced Technologies, has now been officially named the Aston Martin Valkyrie. The name follows in the footsteps of a fine tradition of Aston Martin ‘V’ cars, that started in 1951 with Vantage and remained a name reserved for the most potent model derivatives until 2005. Virage, Vanquish and the Aston Martin Vulcan – Aston Martin’s very own God of fire – are more recent ‘V’ cars to continue this lineage. Now, seven decades after the Vantage name started it all, the Aston Martin Valkyrie propels this uniquely distinctive and lyrical family of model names to another level.

For Aston Martin’s Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman, Aston martin Valkyrie perfectly captures the drama of what is not only the ultimate Aston Martin, but the ultimate expression of hypercar design, engineering and performance: “Aston Martin model names have deep meaning. They need to inspire and excite. To tell a story and enrich a narrative that stretches back some 104-years. The Aston Martin Valkyrie is an incredibly special car that demands an equally remarkable name; an uncompromising car that leaves nothing in reserve. The connotations of power and honour, of being chosen by the Gods are so evocative, and so pertinent to a car that only a fortunate few will ever experience.”
