The limited edition Aston Martin Valour is a retro stunner with a 705-horsepower V-12 engine, a manual gearbox, and plenty of thrills and chills on the road.
The Aston Martin Valour, an already iconic beast of a supercar, celebrates Aston Martin’s 110th anniversary and borrows styling from the one-off Victor as well as the classic V8 Vantage. Only 110 units will be produced, all of which are already spoken for.
Valour was inspired by the timeless designs of legendary Aston Martin race cars of the 70s, meticulously intertwining their DNA with an ultra-modern full-carbon body of tomorrow.
Drawing design inspiration from Aston Martin’s illustrious past, the Valour brings the power with a 705-hp twin-turbo V-12 engine paired with a six-speed manual transmission. Think: inspired styling and muscular V-12 performance. You can get from zero to 60 mph in about three seconds and reach a top speed of more than 200 mph.
The Valour is the spectacular brainchild of a team led by Aston Martin’s director of design, Miles Nurnberger, the same designer who created CC100, which was also created to celebrate its 100th anniversary.
While the CC100 is a smaller speedster, the Aston Martin Valour is a muscular coupe. The very special gearbox is controlled by a beautiful new wood and metal selector, which is seated within a carbon-fiber surround in the center of the cabin.
The beautifully-crafted gear lever effortlessly combines with ultra-modern materials such as lightweight mokume carbon fiber, leather grab handles, and exposed billet aluminum.
To embrace the heritage of the 1959 Le Mans challenger, Valour also incorporates DBR1 tweed, infusing a touch of timeless elegance into the design of its interior.
The Valour is likely the last Aston Martin product launched without a touchscreen interface – and instead, the center screen is controlled by a manual turn-and-click controller. The cabin is filled with many other exquisite details. And, you can choose between 21 standard exterior colors.
And in case you can’t find the exact hue you are after Aston’s Q Division is standing by to create a one-of-a-kind color just for you. An icon from the moment it was revealed, the Valour may well be one of the most exciting cars of our lifetime. Starting at $1 million.
Unleashing its power effortlessly, the Aston Martin Valour achieves a virtually flat torque curve in second gear, maintaining a flat profile from as low as 1,800rpm all the way up to the exhilarating maximum of 7,000rpm.
With no artificial torque shaping in place, it is the driver’s expertise and connection to administer the right amount of power for any moment.
To unleash the essence of the golden era of driving, the Valour is fitted with a mechanical limited slip differential to ensure unparalleled driver engagement.
Valour’s suspension has been carefully calibrated to provide the driver with the most granular and detailed information about the interaction of the car and road surface.
The adaptive dampers, springs, and anti-roll bars allow a breadth of capability spanning from a calm cruise through to a wild and storming lap attack.
Valour stands as undeniable evidence that we can still revel in the exhilaration of pushing the boundaries and connecting deeply with the essence of a car. It constantly challenges and delights us with each gear shift, igniting an adrenaline-filled thrill that leaves us wide-eyed and captivated.
This heart-pounding experience, with a firm grip on the steering wheel and an open heart, is precisely what fuels our passion for living and driving. Every meticulous detail has been meticulously engineered to recapture the essence that the road has lost.

Features worth noting:
• Challenging and delighting us with every gear shift, the white knuckled, open hearted, adrenaline-filled thrill of the Valour is what we live and drive for.
• The 2024 Aston Martin Valour’s muscular stance and proportions draw their inspiration from the company’s illustrious history.
• The Aston Martin DNA also shines forth in shape of the headlights and taillights—now modern LED units—and the twin NACA ducts on the bonnet.
• The Valour bears a striking resemblance to the V8 Vantage that Aston produced from 1977 to 1989 as well as the one-off Victor that Aston Martin’s Q division created in 2020.
• Power comes from a version of the 5.2-liter V-12 from the outgoing DBS Superleggera that churns out a whopping 705 horsepower and 555 pound-feet of torque.
• Like all larger Aston GTs, the Valour employs a rear-mounted transmission – the first time Aston has given a stick shift to one of its “torque tube” models since the manual option was dropped on the DB9 for the 2013 model year.
Only 110 units of the Aston Martin Valour will be produced, all of which are already spoken for. But our Aston Martin retailer always has just what you need.
