All 110 Valor supercars that Aston Martin plans to produce have already had their owners, showing that creating this product is absolutely the right thing for the British aristocratic sports car brand.

After being announced in early July and having one model displayed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2023, the super product Aston Martin Valor has now officially sold out! The limited number of 110 units globally all had their owners within just 2 weeks.

      

Aston Martin does not reveal the specific selling price of the Valour, but experts say that each customer had to spend from 1 to 1.5 million pounds (equivalent to 30 to 46 billion VND) to be sure. vehicle ownership.

Valor can be seen as an important part of Aston Martin’s short-term growth plan because of the nature of this car model in the low volume but high profit group. The British automaker also encourages buyers to customize their car with unique paint colors, interior personalization options, etc. with its Q bespoke service.

Valor’s design is not at all similar to contemporary Aston Martin models. That’s because this special masterpiece has been designed with lines inspired by the original 1977 V8 Vantage, as well as the Le Mans racing car named RHAM/1 ‘Muncher’ from 1980.

The Valor has a carbon fiber body and a clamshell bonnet with horseshoe-shaped air vents, along with dual NACA air vents. Classic round LED headlights, wide grille and vertical air circulation lines. The lower splitter is very clear and shows that the material is made of carbon fiber.

Seen from the side, Valor has a slim, aerodynamic design but at the same time is shaped muscularly, showing strength. The large 21-inch cast alloy wheels have a honeycomb design, with Michelin Pilot Sport S 5 tires optimized specifically for Aston Martin cars. Carbon ceramic brakes with 410 mm front and 360 mm rear discs.

The Valor’s rear is designed in the Kamm style, with the rear of the car cutting straight down suddenly instead of the long claw style often seen on contemporary models. Along with that is “vortex generating exoblades” – a cluster of details that create vortex winds to improve the vehicle’s aerodynamic efficiency. LED lights with modern graphics, 3-exhaust system placed in the middle and surrounded by an aggressive air splitter.

Valour’s cabin is quite similar to the current new Vantage, but is designed in a minimalist style to match the classic image that Aston Martin wants to create. The air conditioning vents have been revised, while the “saddle” area stands out with a circular-tipped shift lever covered in wood.

Carbon fiber material is also present in many car interiors, from the doors to the seats. In particular, the car seats are also covered with wool tweed fabric, similar to the type used in the DBR1 that won the Le Mans race since 1959.

Valor is powered by a 5.2L twin-turbocharged V12 engine capable of producing 705 horsepower and maximum torque of 753 Nm. Compared to the commercial V12 Vantage, the torque level of the Valor engine is equal but the capacity is slightly more than 15 units.

The engine transmits traction to the rear axle through a 6-speed manual transmission and limited-slip differential. Aston Martin did not reveal the Valor’s acceleration parameters, but it is possible that this super product is equal to the capabilities of the V12 Vantage: accelerating from 0 – 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds before reaching speed. maximum 322 km/h

The Valor has Sport, Sport+ and Track driving modes with “clearly separated throttle response, torque management and sound characteristics”. The steering system is new as well as “a bespoke suspension with adaptive dampers, springs and anti-roll bars, all optimized specifically for the vehicle.” Valor also benefits from a custom body structure for optimal rigidity compared to its production models.

Lawrence Stroll, Aston Martin Executive Chairman, said: “Valor is a celebration of Aston Martin’s passion for driving and extraordinary heritage, while also representing a vibrant return to the modern era. This. A true icon, combining classic characteristics with contemporary craftsmanship, Valor captures the essence of excitement and exclusivity that defines a car brand as storied as Aston Martin.”

The Valor is designed to be a “modern driver’s car” with “the heart and soul of a timeless classic.” The first customers will receive their cars starting in September 2023.
