Aston Martin’s Forthcoming Baby Valkyrie Could Look Something Like This

Among all the plans that Aston Martin is putting in place is a new mid-engined supercar. Something to slot in beneath the Valkyrie, and above the upcoming DBS Superleggera. We have a number of questions as to how it will shape up, but one of them is how it will look. And this looks like a pretty compelling answer.

Rendered by digital artist Rain Prisk, this design gives us at least one idea of what the vehicle might look like. Rather than downsizing the Valkyrie’s extreme styling, Prisk’s rendering applies some of the design elements we’ve seen on recent front-engined Astons (like the Vantage and DB11) to a mid-engined shape.

While the Valkyrie goes up against the likes of the Mercedes-AMG Project One, its baby brother is expected to target models like the Ferrari 488 GTB, Lamborghini Huracan, and McLaren 720S. So expect a price tag in the hundreds of thousands, not the millions. Say, about a quarter to a third of a million, give or take.

It could seek to adapt the V8 or V12 twin-turbo powertrains it’s engineered with Mercedes. Or it could go another route – like the Valkyrie has with Cosworth. Red Bull Racing’s expertise could be brought to bear as well, along with other parties (like Ricardo for the gearbox).

One way or another, it’ll have to bring the goods – both in terms of performance and design – if it’s going to take on more established players in this competitive segment. So look for a 0-60 time of around three seconds and a top speed in excess of 200 miles per hour.

  • Nordschleife

    Back in the day I would’ve probably said yes but with how avant-garde their styling is now, I am thinking it will not.

  • No it wouldn’t be a Huracan with a DB11 body.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, The Alphaghini

  • ProtectOurHeritage

    I’m guessing the photoshopped image started out as a Lamborghini?

    • Six_Tymes

      i think you are correct

  • Well the rendering is good and he manage to put Aston design language, but the car looks awkwardly proportioned (Read: Fat)
