Aston Martin to use 'Valhalla' on an upcoming new supercar

Aston Martin to use 'Valhalla' on an upcoming new supercar

> The Aston Martin Valhalla, allegedly referred to internally as the ‘Son of Valkyrie’, is expected to arrive in 2021

> Limited to just 500 units and will be built in both left- and right-hand drive configurations

> The Valhalla would undercut the 1,000+bhp Valkyrie in the automaker’s performance car line-up 


Sources have learnt that Aston Martin has filed a trademark application on 12 October with the World Intellectual Property organisation to attain rights for using the ‘Valhalla’ name on its passenger/race cars.

Last year Aston Martin chief creative officer Marek Reichman told reporters that ‘Valhalla’ is a name they’d be using on an upcoming supercar. And this essentially confirms the brand’s decision to go ahead with the development of one of its upcoming concepts.

And if you put two-and-two together, it seems as though the ‘003’, whose sketch and details were unveiled last month, looks like the perfect recipient for the ‘Valhalla’ name. Reichman, disclosed at the time, how the name Valkyrie (concept codenamed 001) is linked to Valhalla. 

According to Norse mythology, a Valkyrie would choose which warriors in a battle would die, and which would live. If you were selected to die, the Valkyrie would fly you to the hall of the slain in Valhalla. Reichman said, “The mythology behind the name is perfect, because you are chosen to come to Valhalla,” he said. “For me, it is very much about being the chosen one, and everything tied into place as we knew we’d have to go through a choosing process too with our customers.”

It sure sounds like a tale and if it works for Aston, well, why not? Anyway, Aston Martin seems to be on-a-roll, having chosen all their future car names with ‘V’, which is obvious from their list – Valkyrie, Valhalla and Varekai. And, a lot more ‘V’ names in their name-bank (as per Reichman). Stay glued to CarWale for the information in the time to come.
