Aston Martin Trademarks ‘Valen’ Name, Is Another Supercar Coming?

Aston Martin has just filed a trademark for the name ‘Valen’ – which falls in line with the nomenclature for its new-gen supercars that start with a V and might point towards an upcoming model.

The British car manufacturer went on a bit of a trademarking spree in 2018, also securing the rights to names such as Valhalla and Varekai. The trademark for ‘Valen’ was filed with the Ministry of Economy and Trade in Lebanon and recently published by the UK’s intellectual property office. The application was made on October 5 last year.

If Aston Martin intends on naming one of its future models the Valen, it remains unclear which one it would be. One possibility is that it will be used by the road-going version of the Aston Martin AM-RB 003 unveiled at the recent Geneva Motor Show.

That is a hybrid hypercar which will slot below the Valkyrie in Aston’s range and is yet to be given a proper name for production. Could it be the Valen? Possibly. However, chief executive Andy Palmer hinted earlier this month that the Valhalla moniker might be used by the AM-RB 003.

We already have confirmation that Aston Martin’s rival to the McLaren 720S and Ferrari F8 Tributo will be dubbed the Vanquish, so the new name could be used on a new, as yet undisclosed, model. Or, maybe, the production version of the DBX crossover.
