The AMR Track Performance Pack for the Aston Martin Valkyrie Rides the Line Between Crazy and Insane
Such news always messes up my thought process for a while. How can an insanely powerful hypercar get add-ons that will make it all the more powerful? Somehow Aston Martin has managed to accomplish it. The AMR Track Performance PAck for the 2018 Aston Martin Valkyrie is not just about the performance; it includes a vast array of add-ons that can make it stand out even more than it already does....if you can believe that.
Aston Martin Prepares to Wave Bye-Bye to the Mercedes-Sourced V-8 To Make Way For This New, More Evolved Engine
Aston-Martin has been using Mercedes-AMG V-8 engines for five years now but the days of the 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged unit seem to be numbered as the British company is developing a new straight-six of its own for use in future models.
Aston-Martin models currently come with one of two engines: the DB11 and the new Vantage are fitted with the 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged, V-8 of Mercedes-AMG origin while the DBS Superleggera is equipped with an old-school 5.2-liter V-12. The new straight-six engine could be derived from the beefy V-12 according to Autocar magazine although key Aston-Martin figures pointed out that the partnership with Mercedes could continue in one way or another as Aston-Martin gears up on its hybridization dreams.
What do we know about the Aston Martin DBX Crossover?
Joining the onslaught of super powerful and super luxurious SUVs of today, Aston Martin revealed the first photos of the new DBX. Although still under heavy camouflage, we can clearly see the contours of the first Aston Martin SUV. Furthermore, with a bit of research, I did find out quite a bit about the newest competitor among super SUVs.
Nevertheless, it is still quite uncertain what segment the SUV will enter. Will it be like a hyped-up version of SUVs the size of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, or will it match the audaciousness, and the size of the X5M, or the AMG GLE 63S? These are the unknowns we are still investigating.
Despite its size, the Aston Martin DBX is going to join the exclusive club of unanticipated super SUVs like the Bentley Bentayga, the Porsche Cayenne, and even the Rolls Royce Cullinan. Granted, all of these SUVs tread a slightly different path but have some commonalities like being powerful, fast, and full of technology.
New Images of the Aston Martin Valkyrie’s Interior Just Cast Shade All over the 2019 McLaren Speedtail
The Valkyrie is closer and closer to finally being released into the wild. But, until it’s ready to roam freely, Aston Martin decided to make the waiting that much harder by releasing a new batch of images, one of which shows the production version interior.
Did you ever think you’ll see a two-tone Valkyrie rolling on gorgeous gunmetal-gray multi-spoke wheels? Well, apparently, a white-to-blue color scheme was requested by someone, and Aston Martin was kind enough to release three images of the car in this specification. One of them showcases the Valkyrie’s profile; another is a pigeon-eye view, while the third shot is of the cockpit.
Aston Martin Patents "Valhalla" Name, Could Be a Tip of The Hat To New Supercar
Aston Martin’s new Project 003 supercar is in line to carry the “Valhalla” name after the British automaker filed trademark applications for the name with the U.K.’s Intellectual Property Office and the World Intellectual Property Organization. Auto guide was the first to dig up the applications, which cover “passenger cars and racing cars and parts and fittings therefor.” Aston Martin’s plan to use the “Valhalla” name isn’t a shocking revelation. Aston Martin’s Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman, hinted at the name to Drive more than a year ago at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, indicating that it could be used on a future Aston Martin model.
Aston Martin Predicts Its First SUV To Become Its Best-Seller
Aston Martin is probably the only automaker to survive without an SUV in its line-up for this long, other than Ferrari. However, the company confirmed an SUV earlier this year, and now it has boldly predicted that this new SUV, dubbed as the DBX, will be its best-selling vehicle after its launch next year. The DBX was showcased in 2015 as a concept car.
A New V-6 And Lots More is Coming from Aston Martin In The Next Four Years
Aston-Martin’s new V-6 hybrid engine is in the works. The British company, which has seen a rapid increase in profit in the past few years, is on the verge of a launching spree, planning to launch as many as four cars in the next five years. Among these will be the new Project 003, a mid-engine supercar with a V-6 heart that will act as the stepping stone for the company’s 488-beating model that will follow later.
With the Valkyrie and the DBX just around the corner, Aston-Martin is already working on their next car known as Project 003. Just by numerology, you’d have to think it will have some links with the Valkyrie – codenamed Project 001 – and the Valkyrie AMR Pro – known internally as Project 002. Indeed, the new hypercar will share the mid-engine layout, but the powertrain will be very different.
