Aston last year ended development of its own 3.0-litre V6 engine, which was eventually to be rolled out across its range, as part of a massive streamlining program under the CEO and former boss of AMG, Tobias Moers. The new supercar will therefore be reworked to accommodate the larger and more economical German engine, as was the Valhalla, but will remain faithful to its light and dynamic design.
Built around a carbon fiber tub for the optimal combination of stiffness and lightness, the newcomer should tip the scales at under 1500kg, given that the more stretched Valhalla weighs just 1550kg, while that an aerodynamic package inspired by the Valkyrie will maximize downforce and promote high agility in fast turns. For reference, the Valhalla’s airflow-enhancing body elements – including gaping front-to-rear venturi tunnels and an active front splitter and rear wing – generate 600kg of downforce at 150mph. .
However, the overall package should be as road-focused and generously equipped as its rivals, with a dual emphasis on driver-focused ergonomics and long-distance refinement. Above all, the supercar will benefit from Aston’s transition to a new generation of touchscreen infotainment, which will be the main upgrade for its facelifted front-engine sports cars – Aston Martin Vantage, DBS and Aston Martin DB11 – end 2022.
