Aston Martin Lagonda Global – Imminent Launch Of Alonso-Inspired New Valiant - Ultra-Exclusive, Track-Focused, Road-Legal Extreme Special Edition


As the new pinnacle of ferocious front-engined Aston Martin limited edition specials, the group is about to launch its new Valiant model.


Aston Martin Lagonda Global Holdings (LON:AML) anticipates that first deliveries are due to commence in Q4 2024, with the Valiant making its public debut within the next fortnight, at the 2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed (July 11-14).


Brutish New Model


Combining the brutal style and blistering performance of a bygone evocative era of brutal V12 performance with state-of-the-art contemporary engineering, lightweight materials and spectacular design, the Valiant pushes the boundaries of performance and engagement to evolve, intensify and reimagine the ultimate Aston Martin driver’s car.


Imminent Launch


The company plans dynamic demonstrations of the model on the famous Hill Climb course, one of the demonstration runs will be in the hands of Valiant’s first customer; two-time Formula One® World Champion and Aston Martin Aramco Formula One® Team driver, Fernando Alonso. 


Alonso stated that:


“Valour was a spectacular celebration of Aston Martin's 110th anniversary, and stirred me to create a more extreme, race car-inspired version that was track focussed, while also delivering a thrilling drive on-road.


Valiant is born from my passion for driving at the limit and I have enjoyed working closely with the Q by Aston Martin team on both the design and technical specification and believe we have created a masterpiece.”


Pre-sold Model


Production will be strictly limited to 38 units globally, with first deliveries expected to commence in Q4 2024.


I understand that all of the 38 units have been pre-sold.


With the Valiant the company continues the brand’s long tradition of developing highly collectable special edition models.


My View


The group, whose shares just a month ago were down to 125p, should be declaring its Interim Results, for the six months to end June, before the end of July.


Last night they closed at 154.80p, valuing the group at £1.27bn.



Within the next month, I would expect to see the shares edging higher on the back of greater investor interest sparked by more items of corporate news.
