To celebrate the 70th anniversary of its entry into the United States, Aston Martin announced that it will release a convertible version of the Valkyrie, the Valkyrie Roadster, at the Pebble Beach Auto Show in California, which opens on August 12, 2021.
Valkyrie is a supercar released by Aston Martin at the Geneva Motor Show in 2017 and developed in cooperation with Red Bull Racing. Its car name is derived from the Valkyrie in Norse mythology.
After 4 years of continuous testing, the car finally announced its official mass production in the near future.
Although the car has not yet been officially released, it is expected that the car will use a new aerodynamic kit and use a dark green paint. It is worth mentioning that this car will also join a variety of different types of versions such as AMR21, V12 Speedster and 1964 DB5.
At present, the power configuration of the car has not been announced, but in this regard, you can refer to the level of Valkyrie:
Equipped with a hybrid system consisting of a 6.5L V12 naturally aspirated engine and an electric motor, the total output power can reach 865kW and the peak torque is 900N·m, giving the car the ability to accelerate from 100 kilometers to 2.5s. (Via U-Car)

BMW Group today released its second-quarter financial report, stating that it achieved a net profit of 4.8 billion euros in the second quarter, more than double the 2.2 billion euros predicted by Refinitiv analysts.
Currently, the company has raised its full-year profit margin forecast. BMW expects its automotive division to have an operating profit margin of 7-9%, higher than the previous 6-8%.
But BMW CEO Oliver Zips still said: Taking into account a series of common risks such as raw material prices and semiconductor shortages, the second half of the year may be more turbulent for BMW. "(Via Sina Finance)
Due to some well-known reasons, BMW also lost 666 million euros in the second quarter of last year.
Recently, RCBhargava, chairman of Maruti Suzuki, the largest car manufacturer in India, made a statement:
Hydrogen energy is an interesting option for the Indian market, which will reduce the dependence on lithium imports.
Due to backward charging settings and high battery manufacturing costs, Indian automakers have been slow to promote electric vehicles.
The per capita income in India is about US$2,000, which accounts for about 5% of the income of Europe and Japan, and 95% of cars sell for less than US$20,000.
In order to reduce fuel consumption and emissions, Maruti is promoting the sale of vehicles using compressed natural gas and is investing in hybrid technology. (Via new trip)
Where will India’s new energy market go in the future? It will take time to verify the answer.
According to foreign media reports, South Korean battery manufacturer Samsung SDI has received an order from Volkswagen and has become a contract manufacturer of its electric car batteries. It will be responsible for part of the production of Volkswagen's self-designed prismatic batteries.
In addition, Samsung SDI may not only be a contract manufacturer, but also participate in design and manufacturing. This will be similar to Tesla handing over the basic design work of its self-driving car SoC to Samsung Electronics.
It is understood that the public believes that solid-state batteries will be the ultimate form of batteries in the future, and the new square standard battery cells are the best choice for the transition to solid-state battery cells.
Volkswagen said that by 2030, 80% of its electric vehicles will use this battery.
Ads are better than movies
Today, Tuesday, it’s time to watch movies again. This time I bring you a creative advertisement for Volvo City’s Smart Security System.
In the advertisement, Volvo converted an XC60 into a remote control car and handed the remote control to a little girl.
▲Is the little girl super cute?
▲The little girl can control this XC60 through the remote control
In the hands of the little girl, this XC60 successfully jumped over the hill.
He even rolled down the hill because of the little girl's mistake.
But this rollover did not seem to have much impact on the XC60. After the car was stable, the little girl continued to "drive" the car to complete many interesting small challenges without saying anything.
Want to know what happened to this XC60 later? May wish to click on the video to see it.
