Aston Martin Highlights Valhalla’s Interior Design Process.

Development continues on the Aston Martin Valhalla. In a new video, brand design director Miles Nurnberger offers a look inside the supercar’s cabin and explains some of the work behind its creation.

Nurnberger and his team had a Valhalla model where they could move elements and adjust the seats to make the cabin ideal for a supercar. The company even put a racer inside this mockup to ensure that the layout facilitates fast lap times.

Inside, Valhalla keeps things simple. The driver grips the steering wheel in a rounded rectangle. Behind him, there is a wide digital screen. The floating center console holds the start/stop button and toggle switch.

After debuting as the AM-RB 003 concept in March 2019, the production version of the Valhalla will finally arrive in 2024.

Power will come from a 4.0-liter twin-turbo hybrid V8 engine with a flat crankshaft. An electric motor will power each shaft. Total system output will be 937 horsepower (699 kilowatts) and 738 pound-feet (1,000 Newton-meters) of torque. According to projections, the supercar will hit 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 2.5 seconds and will have a top speed of 217 mph (350 kph). The electric-only range will be only 9.0 miles (15 kilometers).

The combustion engine sends power to an eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox to the rear wheels. An electronically controlled limited-slip differential provides traction between the two sides.

Aston Martin projects that Valhalla can pass the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 6 minutes 30 seconds. This would be enough to beat the current record of 6:43 from the Porsche 911 GT2 RS with the Manthey Racing upgrade.

The brand intends to build only 500 examples of Valhalla. In 2019, the estimated starting price is £875,000.

Following the launch of the Valhalla, Aston Martin plans to introduce a new Vanquish in 2025. It will use the same twin-turbo V8 version as the supercar.
