Aston Martin's AM-RB 003 will be known as the Valhalla

Formerly known as AM-RB 003, Aston Martin’s latest mid-engined hypercar collaboration with Red Bull Advanced Technologies and Adrian Newey has been officially named the Aston Martin Valhalla.

Named after the warrior’s paradise celebrated in ancient Norse mythology, Valhalla employs lightweight construction methods and the aerodynamics pioneered in the Valkyrie hypercar.

Valhalla will be propelled by a combination of a high-efficiency, high-output turbocharged V6 petrol engine and battery-electric hybrid system. Just 500 Coupe examples of the all-carbon fibre hypercar will be built.

“Aston Martin model names always attract a lot of attention. They do so because they invariably capture an emotion or tell a story,” said Andy Palmer, Aston Martin Lagonda President and Group Chief Executive Officer. “In following the Valkyrie we knew the Aston Martin Valhalla needed to make a strong statement of its own, yet also offer continuity and a clear connection. Norse mythology contains such powerful language and rich storytelling it felt only right that the AM-RB 003 should follow the Valkyrie’s theme.”
