Aston Martin Reveals Retro-Styled Valour V12-Powered Supercar with a Manual Transmission

Aston Martin has unveiled the Valour, a limited-edition supercar that takes inspiration from the 1970s V8 Vantage, which we can now confirm being the teased vehicle in their previous social media post. The Valour looks to be based on the DB12 platform, but it has been heavily restyled with a more aggressive stance and retro-inspired features.

Fundamentally, the Valour is a limited-edition supercar that is sure to turn heads by combining the classic styling of the 1970s V8 Vantage with modern performance and technology.
The Valour is powered by a twin-turbocharged 5.2-liter V12 engine that produces 705 horsepower and 555 pound-feet of torque and is mated to a six-speed manual transmission, which is the only available gearbox. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a mechanical limited-slip differential and will have a top speed of over 200 mph.

The Valour rides on 21-inch wheels wrapped with Michelin Pilot Sport S 5 tires (275/35 front, 325/30 rear), and it has a carbon fiber body that helps to keep the weight down. Additionally, the 6-piston brake calipers up front clamping down on large 16-inch carbon ceramic brake rotors, and four-piston calipers in the rear on 14-inch rotors save weight but don’t compromise in shedding speed of the retro supercar.

Inside the Valour, you’ll find carbon fiber trim and a variety of customization options, including tweed upholstery. There will be a choice of four different colors for the exterior.

Only 110 Valours will be built, and they are expected to start at around $1 million.
