Watch Aston Martin Valhalla Take Its First Steps On Track With Valkyrie
The Aston Martin Valhalla and Valkyrie are the British brand's one-two punch of supercars with names straight out of Norse mythology. In a new video, the pair hit the track at Silverstone and also pose in a gallery of impressive photos. The new outing comes as part of a celebration of the Valhalla's North American debut at the Quail event during Monterey Car Week.
The Valhalla has a similar appearance to the Valkyrie, but Aston Martin positions it as a more road-friendly machine. The new model uses a twin-turbo V6 with hybrid assistance. Aston Martin isn't discussing the powertrain's output yet, but rumours put the number at 1,000 bhp. There's carbon fibre throughout the Valhalla to keep weight down, and it reportedly weighs just 1,350 kilograms.

- Valkyrie's British GP debut was 'two fingers' to sceptics
Aston Martin is only making 500 Valhallas, and the company says that it already has more reservations than that. The automaker isn't publicly discussing the price, but the starting figure is reportedly £875,000. The first owners allegedly get to experience the supercar in 2021.
For comparison, the Valkyrie uses naturally-aspirated, Cosworth-built 6.5-litre V12 with hybrid assistance that makes a total of 1,160 bhp and 664 lb-ft of torque. The engine can rev to a sky-high 11,100 rpm. Aston Martin is only making 150 of them and, like the Valhalla, all of the reservations are gone. The first delivery happens before the end of the year.
