We can forget the name AM-RB 001 to refer us to the spectacular supercar that Aston Martin has prepared together with Red Bull. This project has been months breaking the head of many engineers and officials from both companies, while at this time we not could do more than wait for details and information on this new product. Just a few minutes we have known its final name, Aston Martin Valkyrie.
The Aston Martin Valkyrie name it is not the result of chance, is that the British firm takes naming their Best Supercars with names that start with the letter “V” more than six decades, since 1951, as the Aston Martin Vanquish, Vantage or the latest Vulcan.
The names “they need to inspire and excite”, say from the brand. It seems that the British company wants to frighten only with the name of your model. According to mythology, the Valkyries were responsible for choosing what died in combat deserved to go to Valhalla with the god Odin. Hopefully no Valkyrie to visit any of the 150 lucky and future owners of the Aston Martin Valkyrie, nor to any of the 150 units, clear.
It is true that we have great information of this supercar, unfortunately. What we do know is that one of the persons responsible to carry out and develop this project is The footballer Adrian Newey, who very recently managed to lead the Team Red Bull’s Formula 1 to the top for several years.
As its definitive name, we expect a radical, aggressive, and very very fast product. Few people in the world will be able to extract the full potential of this supercar born for circuits. The largest penalty for all of us is that it will be very difficult to see it in person, most still circulating on a road. We fear that the majority of owners trap it and will have it as a work of art, not enjoy outdoor.
