Aston Martin has shared new details of the upcoming Valhalla hypercar. The latest video details the active aerodynamics package that will help keep it glued to the tarmac.
The Aston Martin Valhalla will feature a full suite of active aero surfaces. The most prominent piece of aero on the car is the active rear spoiler. It uses a hydraulic system that can react to changes in the environment and the driver’s input in less than 0.5 seconds. In ‘Sport’ mode, the spoiler retracts into the bodywork and is raised in ‘Track’ mode.
Moreover, the Valhalla has a drag reduction system (DRS) that stalls the wing to reduce drag, allowing it to reach speeds over 217 mph. It also doubles as an air brake.
The Valhalla also gets an active front wing that can be deployed to increase downforce. It also works as a cooling bypass when retracted.
The Valhalla is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine paired with an electric motor on each axle. The combined output of this hybrid setup is 937 hp and 738 lb-ft. The engine is mated to an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
