A revised version of the Aston Martin Valhalla with AMG power is coming
Will the Valhalla ever see the light of the day?
Production of the Aston Martin Valhalla has been postponed about a million times for a variety of reasons but now Aston is gearing up to unveil an upgraded version, almost certainly powered by an AMG-sourced powertrain, with production scheduled to commence in 2023. Hopefully.
The engine that powered the original concept, a twin-turbocharged 1,000-hp hybrid V6, was developed in partnership with Red Bull but Mercedes now owns a significant stake in Aston Martin and as the two brands are already working together for the Cognizant Aston Martin F1 single-seater, it makes sense to develop the engine that will also power the road-going hypercar. The Valhalla is probably going to use the same AMG 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 as the AMG GT73 4Matic, tuned up to at least 800 hp.
Aston remains a bit cryptic as to how many people actually ordered the Valhalla, but they have indeed confirmed that “a chunk of the deposits" that the company was holding at the end of 2020 were for the Valhalla.
