You probably know it as the “AM-RB 001” or the “Aston Martin Redbull Hypercar” but 2017’s most anticipated car now has it’s official name – Valkyrie
Until 2005 with the Aston Martin Vantage, “V” named cars represented the ultimate Astons starting with the 1951 Vantage and continuing on with the Virage, Vanquish and Vulcan. With the Valkyrie, AM is looking to continue this tradition.
There’s no new information on the cars stats, but when you look at the norse meaning of the name then you can be sure it’s going to be a impressive:
The Valkyrie – literal translation from Old Norse being “Chooser of the slain” – are female figures who select who may live and who may die in battle. The Valkyrie then bring half of those slain on the battlefield to Valhalla; the afterlife governed by Odin, Ruler of the Gods
