The new Valhalla hyperathlete: Better than the Mercedes-AMG twin?

The Aston Martin Secret

Technically, the new Aston Martin Valhalla super sports car shares a lot with the Mercedes-AMG One. But the engineers of the traditional British brand still want to distance themselves from their cooperative partner with a 1000 hp racer.

The UK likes to play a special role, and not just since Brexit. The British Isles pride themselves on doing things a little differently than mainland Europeans. This attitude is also reflected in the Aston Martin Valhalla. It looks like a sister model to the mega-bolide One from cooperation partner Mercedes-AMG. But Corenn Lange vehemently disagrees: “We only took over the engine block and crankshaft from AMG,” explains the Aston Martin manager.

As if that wasn’t enough, adds Lange: “At the Nürburgring-Nordschleife, we want to beat the time of the Mercedes-AMG One by five seconds.” Something dares for a long time: then the AMG car just set a new record for production vehicles at the legendary race track in Germany with 6:35.183 minutes. The announcement is also bold, as development of Aston Martin’s new plug-in hybrid hypercar is not yet complete. A combination of an internal combustion engine and two electric motors powers the Valhalla with more than 1,000 hp (735 kW), allowing the 1.5-tonne all-wheel-drive vehicle to sprint from zero to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds and beyond. to a maximum speed of 350 km/h. For comparison: the AMG One has 1,063 hp (782 kW), completes the standard sprint in 2.9 s, and the drive ends at 352 km/h.
