Alfardan Luxury Motors Co., the official dealer for Aston Martin in the State of Qatar, has presented the Valhalla – the supercar’s first stop on its region-wide tour. The British marque’s sensational Formula 1 inspired hybrid model was unveiled during an exclusive showcase.
The Valhalla concept car was brought to production reality as an extraordinary, truly driver-focused mid-engined hybrid supercar. It sets best-in-class standards for performance, dynamics and driving pleasure, and as Aston Martin’s first plug-in hybridsports car, Valhalla drives the marques transition from internal combustion to hybrid to fully electrictrified powertrains.
Speaking of the reveal, Samir El Khabaz, Brand Manager of Alfardan Luxury Motors said: “We’re delighted to present the extraordinary Aston Martin Valhalla to our customers, and to be the first in the region to have this opportunity – the feedback we have received is phenomenal. The exclusivity of the model, plus the intense performance and unprecedented driving experience places the supercar at the absolute pinnacle of luxury motoring.”
Built with chassis, aerodynamic and electronics expertise forged in Formula 1® and a cutting edge hybrid powertrain technology at its heart, Valhalla is a formidable technological showcase. With a mid-engined ICE and battery electric powertrain, new carbon fibre structure and aerodynamics shaped by the pioneering philosophy first seen in the revolutionary Aston Martin Valkyrie, it brings the perfect balance of hypercar performance and advanced powertrain, driving dynamics and uniquely sophisticated design materials to redefine the supercar sector.
At the beating heart of Valhalla is an all new PHEV powertraina rear mid mounted 4.0 litre twin turbo bespoke V8 engine – the most advanced, responsive and highest performing V8 engine ever fitted to an Aston Martin. Revving to 7,200rpm and developing 812PS, it sends drive exclusively to the rear axle.
Supplementing this new V8 engine is a 150kW/400V battery hybrid system.The electric system contributes a further 200PS for a headline combined power output of 1,012PS.
Running in EV only mode, Valhalla is capable of a maximum 130km/h and has a zero emission range of 15km. Unleashing all 1,012PS, the Valhalla reaches a top speed of 350 km/h and will complete the sprint from 0-100km/h in just 2.5 seconds.
Valhalla’s predominantly carbon fibre body blends function and beauty in a manner that befits a new generation of mid-engined supercar, including forward hinged dihedral doors. Cockpit room has been increased compared to the Aston Martin Valkyrie, though the F1TM derived heel-to-hip ratio and apex ergonomics remain, ensuring complete driver alignment for the most engaging, connected driving experience.
The Valhalla is a new generation Aston Martin; it defines a new driver and driving experience - ‘the Mastery of Driving’, a true ultra luxury, exclusive, British supercar.
