Strikingly similar to the Aston Martin Victor, first revealed in 2020, the Aston Martin Valour is a limited edition, V12 manual supercar, designed to celebrate the maker’s 110-year anniversary, while also being “engineered to bring back what the road has lost.”

The introduction of the Valour comes at a time when manual drive vehicles are becoming more and more scarce and as we potentially move into a future potentially dominated by self-driving electric vehicles, making the Valour “a tribute to the golden era of driving when cars were seductive, wild, beautiful.”

Inspired by the V8 Vantage-based RHAM/1 ‘Muncher’ Le Mans racer, the Valour offers a timeless feel and exhilarating highly connective driving experience, while also maintaining ultra-modern specifications. The vehicle’s 5.2-liter twin-turbo twelve-cylinder engine is mounted in a bespoke version of Aston’s bonded aluminum platform — boasting 714 hp and 555 lb-ft of torque.

Other modern aspects of the Valour include selective driving modes, bespoke suspension, adaptive damping, new springs, anti-roll bars and various wheel configurations.

On the exterior, the Valour provides a fierce “future-classic” look, featuring bold round LED headlights, a new grille and accentuated rear splitter. Inside the cabin, the vehicle gives off more of a traditional feel, dominated by the manual gearbox lever.

While the premiere spec is certainly a sight to behold, Aston did share that each Valour, limited to a production of 110 total vehicles, will in essence be unique examples thanks to the bespoke options offered by its Q division.

For those interested in building out a spec or learning more about the “fearless fusion of heritage and modern luxury,” Aston Martin has provided a dedicated configurator and information page on its website.
