The Aston Martin Valkyrie is the Hypercar of the future
Built in partnership with Red Bull Advanced Technologies and codenamed the AM-RB 001, Aston Martin’s Hypercar has officially been named the Valkyrie. Continuing the tradition of Aston Martin ‘V’ cars, a trend that began in 1951 with the Vantage, the Valkyrie is a F1 car built for the road.

Continuing the lineage of the Virage, Vanquish, and Vulcan, seven decades after the Vantage started it all, the Aston Martin Valkyrie propels the distinctive model nomenclature to a whole new level.
For Aston Martin’s Chief Creative Office, Marek Reichman, Valkyrie perfectly captures the drama of what is the ultimate Aston Martin: “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 connotations of being chosen by the Gods are so evocative, and so pertinent to a car that only a fortunate few will ever experience.”
