To see the new fireball of James Bond in the last film of the 007 saga, “No Time to die”, we will have to wait a little longer. Due to the Coronavirus, the film's big-screen debut, scheduled for spring 2020, has been postponed to next autumn.
Daniel Craig he will again take on the role of the secret agent in the service of his majesty and will drive an Aston Martin Valhalla, an almost definitive version of the AM-RB 003 who already showed off during the Geneva Motor Show 2019. Arrived after the Valkyrie and the Valkyrie AMR Pro, the Valhalla inherits aerodynamic solutions and carbon construction from them, the result of the close collaboration between Aston Martin, Adrian Newey is Red Bull Advanced Techologies.
For the Valhalla that will appear in the last chapter of the James Bond saga, to be released in November, provided that this Coronavirus pandemic leaves us in peace, Aston Martin has created a new engine entirely developed at home after 52 years. The fireball of 007 has a V6 Twin Turbo 3 litri which reaches a weight of 200 kg. Thanks to its compact dimensions, the engine can be mounted both in the central position, as happens in the case of the Valhalla, and in the front.
To give its compactness to the V6 Twin Turbo made by Aston Martin it is the dry carter that also allows you to lower the center of gravity of the James Bond car. The engine, fully compliant with the requirements for obtaining the Euro 7 homologation, will be joined by two electric units for a total power that should exceed 715 horses.
Regarding the use of the hybrid powertrain, a real novelty for Aston Martin, the use on the Vanquish, a copy to be released in 2023. It is not yet known whether the same solution will also be used for the future version of the Dbx SUV. Compared to Valkyrie, the Valhalla it will be much more practical, presenting a wider central tunnel that allows you to offer more shoulder space. Behind the seats, the British brand has decided to place a small luggage compartment. The controls of the fireball of 007 have been reduced to a minimum and concentrated mainly on the display and multifunction steering wheel, with the entire 3D printed dashboard.
