The revolutionary Aston Martin hypercar is officially named

Taking its name from the Gods, the AM-RB 001 is officially named Aston Martin Valkyrie.

Aston Martin Valkyrie joins the lineage of Aston Martin 'V' cars and continues a naming tradition that spans seven decades. This began back in 1951 with Vantage, which was selected as a name to distinguish high performance variants of the then current model, the DB2.

It remained a name reserved for the most potent model derivatives until 2005, when the Vantage became a model line in its own right. Twelve years later the acclaimed family of V8 and V12-powered models has made the Vantage the most successful model in Aston Martin’s history.

Virage, Vanquish and the Aston Martin Vulcan - Aston Martin’s very own God of fire - are more recent ‘V’ cars to continue this lineage. Now, seven decades after the Vantage name started it all, the Aston Martin Valkyrie propels this uniquely distinctive and lyrical family of model names to another level.

While its name is rooted in ancient mythology, the Aston Martin Valkyrie is a pure expression of modern technology. By bringing together Aston Martin, Red Bull Advanced Technologies, project partner AF Racing and some of the world’s leading technology partners, the Aston Martin Valkyrie promises otherworldly performance befitting of its name.
