Aston Martin has filed a trademark application with the World Intellectual Property Organisation for the name ‘Valhalla’ to be used on “passenger cars, racing cars, parts and fittings therefore,” according to Autoguide. While unconfirmed, indications point to it being the name of the car until now known as Project 003, with the Valhalla sitting below the Valkyrie in Aston Martin’s line-up.

The Valhalla will be powered by a hybrid powertrain featuring a turbocharged V6 petrol engine producing approximately 900 hp, and will have performance levels comparable to those of the Ferrari LaFerrari and Porsche 918 Spyder.

Why Valhalla? In Norse legend, a Valkyrie is a female figure that determined which warriors would be slain in battle and carry them to the afterlife in Valhalla. As such, the naming convention would effectively tie the cars in nicely.

“The mythology behind the name is perfect, because you are chosen to come to Valhalla. For me, it is very much about being the chosen one, and everything tied into place as we knew we’d have to go through a choosing process too with our customers,” Aston Martin chief creative officer Marek Reichman had said to Australian publication Drive last year.

There’s more to come starting with the letter V, Reichman had also said, explaining that the company has a bunch more of V-based names that it has thought of and hasn’t used.

Indeed, a future Aston Martin model name is Varekai, which appears set to be used on an upcoming ultra-luxury SUV. This model will go up against the likes of the Bentley Bentayga, Lamborghini Urus and the Rolls-Royce Cullinan. There will be a higher-volume mid-engined rival, added Reichman, though production for this likely won’t start until all road-going Valkyries and its track-only versions are built.
