Aston Martin to unveil DBX SUV, have Valkyrie by year end


Midengine supercar: At this year’s Geneva auto show, Aston Martin unveiled the Vanquish Vision Concept, resurrecting the Vanquish name. The project previewed a midengine rival to supercars such as the Ferrari F8 Tributo and McLaren 720S. Of the three midengine vehicles in Aston Martin’s pipeline, this one is the most distant, with production to begin in 2022 at the earliest.

Valhalla: The midengine hypercar that began life under the code-name AM-RB 003 was officially named the Valhalla in June. Limited to 500 units, the Valhalla features a carbon-fiber chassis and body and will use a new V-6 hybrid and turbocharged gasoline engine developed in-house by Aston Martin. The car is due in 2021 and is expected to sell for more than $1 million, making it a rival for the McLaren Senna, among others.

Valkyrie: Deliveries of the hypercar developed with Red Bull Racing will begin by the end of this year. The Valkyrie is powered by a 6.5-liter V-12 engine with a hybrid system. It has a combined power output of 1,160 hp, with 664 pound-feet of torque. Integral Powertrain is supplying the electric motor, and the hybrid battery system is coming from Rimac, Aston Martin said.

DBX: Aston Martin’s foray into the SUV segment is nearly here. The DBX will be shown in production form in December, with deliveries beginning in mid-2020. The DBX, which the brand has shown camouflaged, will be built at the St. Athan plant.

Lagonda sedan: Lagonda, Aston Martin’s full-electric brand, will get a sedan offering a year after the SUV goes on sale in 2022.

Lagonda SUV: The Lagonda All-Terrain Concept was unveiled at the Geneva show this year, previewing what a production model could look like for the first model from Aston Martin’s full-electric brand. The concept had rear-hinged back doors and opening roof sections similar to those of the Vision Concept sedan from 2018. The Lagonda SUV will go on sale in 2022.
