Replace of June 18, 2019: Aston Martin formally attributed to AM-RB 003 the title of Valhalla.
This 12 months, Aston Martin selected the Geneva Motor Present to unveil its newest mid-engine hypercar idea, the AM-RB 003. However because the # 39; AM-RB 001 which grew to become Valkyrie, we anticipate the AM-RB 003 to get a extra conventional title when it goes on sale. Till now, Aston Martin has not but formally introduced the title of the manufacturing AM-RB 003, however the British producer intends to call it, borrowed from a reputation borrowed from Norse mythology.
Andy Palmer, CEO of Aston Martin in Europe, strongly urged that AM-RB 003 may very well be named, although he has not formally confirmed something. "Valhalla is a reputation now we have registered in our title guide," Palmer mentioned. It doesn’t seem that Aston Martin has already filed the model title within the US, however that doesn’t essentially imply something in both case.

And though Aston Martin has already said that the efficiency of the AM-RB 003 "will attain and surpass its current high-end hypercars rivals", evidently weight might be a extra vital issue than the ability. "One of many features of working with [Adrian Newey, chief engineer for Red Bull’s Formula 1 team] is F1's obsession with weight, past all that I've seen within the business. This has modified the way in which we predict, "mentioned Palmer.
This weight discount can be the rationale why Aston Martin's subsequent hypercar car might be outfitted with a cellphone holder slightly than a traditional infotainment system. "In these kinds of automobiles, you attempt to put weight the place you’ll be able to, you have already got the smartphone in your pocket," Palmer informed Automotive Information Europe.
