James Bond Will Drive the New Aston Martin Valhalla in Bond 25
Here’s your first look at James Bond’s hellacious new hybrid hypercar.
The British marque just unveiled the previously code-named AM-RB 003 today in a press release, but made no mention of a 007 connection. However, UK-based publication This Is Money reported that Daniel Craig will be behind the wheel in the upcoming 25th Bond movie:
This is Money can exclusively reveal is set to be one of a trio of Aston Martins to appear in the latest 007 movie now in production starring Daniel Craig as James Bond.
The starring role of the new Valhalla – given a license to thrill alongside two other historic Aston Martin classics – is set to be confirmed later this week.
Aston Martin names new 200mph hypercar Valhalla – and it will be one of a trio used by @007 in new #JamesBond movie #AstonMartin @astonmartin @AstonMartinWork @AstonMartinPR @AndyatAston @StreetKev @ssproule101 @DavidAdamsUK https://t.co/oErWx9EeKi via @ThisIsMoney

The name, which literally translates to “the hall of the fallen,” is described as a warrior’s postmortem paradise in Norse mythology.
Powered by a new turbocharged V6 hybrid that This Is Money predicts will crank out 1,000 horsepower, the all-carbon-bodied coupe will bridge the gap between the forthcoming flagship Valkyrie hypercar and the Vanquish grand tourer.
Only 500 examples will be built, and it sounds like one of those is already spoken for.
