I gave my deposit early last year and met the designer of the car Miles Nurmberger during last years Monterey Car week. He showed me early sketches of the car then that mimic the rolling model they showed at Geneva. I honestly don’t see any similarity between the GT and the Valhalla.

Its nose...from the 'ground' to the "Aston" badge about one foot above.
They're not identical...just fairly similar in that area.
Beyond that, I can't see any resemblance either.

I don't think Aston Martin should be worried about a call from Ford's lawyers anytime soon.

Im sorry but the Ford GT does not look like that. Eccentric design it may look good all black.

Looking at it more .... I am actually starting to like it. It looks like a Lemans Prototype .

I haven’t decided on the color yet. That process won’t start until sometime next year. Maybe DBK blue lol.

I’m not Ed. But it was too enticing to pass up. I’ve driven my brothers La Ferrari and really like it. So have big hopes for the Valhalla.
Sadly right now I’m not going to make Monterey this year. Would have loved to have gone again but I leave for my first hunting trip to Nunavut on the 23rd. It would be a little tight to add carweek. But I’ve got my fingers crossed that DBK plans a rally for early October. I’m foregoing whitetails for the rally this year!!!!

I’m sure the whitetails will be happy to hear that.

I hear they’re relieved and partying it up

The Hypercar space is getting really crowded. I do like the design and hope AM actually race it. The GT design is more technical to my eyes while the AM seems more conservative.
