    "The knowledge and experience of the AMF1 team personnel at AMPT combined with the skills and know-how of our road car development teams has enabled us to bring direct F1 learnings to sports car development," Aston Martin Product Development Director Carlo Della Casa said.

    The Valhalla was unveiled in 2019 as a concept with a V6 engine as a component of its plug-in hybrid powertrain. But now it will come with the twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 that is present in most of its vehicle lineup. 

    Regarding materials, Aston Martin has extensive experience building cars from carbon fibre. However, AMPT is helping in developing the carbon-fibre monocoque structure of the Valhalla supercar to minimize weight and maximize stiffness. A proprietary system has been developed for the monocoque's construction using F1-derived autoclave technology and resin-transfer moulding.
