Norse mythology had to “valkirias” and female supernatural beings who served their god Odin and whose purpose was to select the great warriors who had to die to be with his God in the battle of the end of the world.
Good, Aston Martin has chosen as “Valkyrie” as the name for its super-car developed with Red Bull Racing F1 and presented a few weeks ago with the codename AM-RB 001. Another supercar that follows the lineage “In” Aston Martin. The tradition “In” follows after 7 decades and it seems that will not be missed, at least for now.
Manager name starting with tradition “In” was Vantage 1951. Vantage name was used to distinguish variants of high-performance models of DB2. With 125 CV's on 105 CV's of normal engines, Aston Martin Vantage with name began to be desired and popular among fans vehicles.
The name remained reserved for more powerful versions of the models of the British brand until 2005 Vantage was born as a unique model. Now we can say that is the most successful model in the history of the luxury brand thanks to its elegance and its powerful V8 and V12 engines.
Now the Valkyrie is responsible for continuing the saga raising the brand to another level with its unique features, engineered, performance and spectacular design hypercar. Only a lucky few will have the experience to get on one of them.
Los Virage, Vanquish and Vulcan are the other brothers of the family “In”, that as Vantage and Valkyrie are object of desire for virtually any car collector or motorsport enthusiast.
