Introducing the Aston Martin Valkyrie...

A new hypercar being co-developed by Aston Martin and Red Bull Advanced Technologies has been officially named the Aston Martin Valkyrie.

Formerly identified using only the codename AM-RB 001, the Valkyrie will follow in a long tradition of Aston Martin 'V' cars dating back to the introduction of the Vantage in 1951 as a high performance variant of the DB2.

The Vantage went on to become a model line in its own right in 2005, while the Virage, Vanquish and Vulcan have all joined the Aston Martin family.

Aston Martin chief creative officer Marek Reichman said: "Aston Martin model names have deep meaning. They need to inspire and excite. To tell a story and enrich a narrative that stretches back some 104 years.

"The Aston Martin Valkyrie is an incredibly special car that demands an equally remarkable name; an uncompromising car that leaves nothing in reserve.

"The connotations of power and honour, of being chosen by the Gods are so evocative, and so pertinent to a car that only a fortunate few will ever experience."
