Could Aston Martin’s AM-RB 003 Hypercar Get the Name Valhalla?

Continuing the Norse Mythology With Its Names

The Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer had an interview with Automotive News Europe and said, “Valhalla is a name we have registered in our naming book.” Due to the fact that the AM-RB 003 Hypercar is currently without a name, it would make sense for the car to receive Valhalla as its name.

The use of the name Valhalla isn’t honestly too surprising. Valkyrie, which is the car that slots above the AM-RB 003, is a name from Norse mythology, so why not name the car that slots under it something in the same pantheon? The Valhalla name even works from an alliteration standpoint.

The production version of the AM-RB 003 is still under development, but when it arrives it will be a force to be reckoned with. The car should have a V6 hybrid powertrain. The specifics for the powertrain’s output is not yet known. Aston hasn’t shared the information publicly.

Aston plans to build 500 of the model, and the car will cost over $1.3 million, according to Carscoops. The car’s release date is set for sometime in 2021, so Aston still has some time to finish making tweaks with the car, though 2021 is just around the corner.
