Aston Martin teases two new models, set to debut at upcoming Pebble Beach Concours



Aston Martin has announced that it will reveal two brand-new models at the upcoming Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, happening later this month, as part of its “strongest-ever presence” at the event. While Aston Martin is still keeping the new models under wraps as usual, they did give us a handful of light teasers to keep us excited until their debuts.

The first model of the duo is said to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Q by Aston Martin, the firm’s bespoke division, so expect something a little more extravagant and pricey. It’ll be a “very special, ultra-exclusive model” that’s said to encapsulate “the brand’s winning track bloodline with a nod to success at the 24 Hours of Le Mans”.

As for the other, Aston Martin says it’ll be a “performance focused model” offering “high-octane emotion and intense driving pleasure”, highly rumoured to be the roadster version of the recent V12 Vantage. It’ll be exclusively revealed at a private VIP event on August 19, before being shown over the weekend at the Aston Martin stand – although it’s still by special invitation only, mind you.

The new cars will all be revealed in the custom-built Aston Martin Club 1913 pavilion, which will serve as an “invitation-only luxury clubhouse” that will give guests a commanding view of the world’s most prestigious car event, while also overlooking the 18th fairway of the prestigious Pebble Beach Golf Links.

The Club 1913 will also feature the recently-unveiled DBX707 flagship SUV, and more importantly, the Valhalla supercar, where Aston Martin will be revealing “exciting development updates” for it. According to the press release, that includes a “revised concept of its driver-focused interior; offering an interactive space for prospective owners to test the vehicle’s unique seating position and F1-inspired overall ergonomics.”

The Valhalla is limited to a 999-units production run, and is based around a bespoke twin-turbo V8 hybrid powertrain with two electric motors, making a total output of 950 hp. Five units have been allocated for Malaysia, and as of August last year, two have already been sold. We won’t be surprised if they’re all spoken for now.
