Leading Aston Martin’s activities on the peninsula this year will be North American debuts of two of the brand’s most hotly anticipated and highly desirable cars as the Valhalla mid-engined hypercar and the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation heritage sports car both make their public debuts outside Europe for the first time.
The Aston Martin Valhalla debuted on Friday, 16 August at ‘The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering’ which takes place in a garden-party setting on the rolling greens of Quail Lodge & Golf Club in the picturesque Carmel Valley. Valhalla is a revolutionary mid-engine hypercar incorporating concepts and technologies used in F1™ racing and inspired by Aston Martin Valkyrie. The new car benefits from the close involvement of Red Bull Advanced Technologies in its engineering and continues one of the brightest and most exciting engineering partnerships in the automotive world.
