    Aston Martin AM-RB 001, 2016
    Aston Martin Valkyrie

    The Aston Martin Valkyrie will be the production name for the Red Bull-designed car previously referred to as the AM-RB 001:

    The name continues a fine tradition of Aston Martin ‘V’ cars. This began back in 1951 with Vantage, which was selected as a name to distinguish high performance variants of the then current model, the DB2. Boasting 125bhp versus 105bhp for the standard engine, the Vantage represented a significant increase in performance and desirability. The first time the Vantage badge appeared was on the side of the DB5.

    I like it, suits the aggressive design of the car.
