Aston Martin will debut two new “high-performance” models on August 21 at the 2022 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California.

The British luxury automaker is remaining tight-lipped about what these two new cars are going to be for now, but Aston Martin says they will be “two exciting additions” to its existing lineup.

One of these new Aston Martin cars is described as performance-oriented model that “continues the high-octane emotion and intense driving pleasure defined by models such as the DBX707, V12 Vantage and the uncompromising Aston Martin Valkyrie“.

This particular car is going to be “exclusively revealed” on August 19 at a private event, before being shown off at the Aston Martin Club 1913 luxury clubhouse by special invitation.

The other model to be revealed will be a “very special, ultra-exclusive model” that celebrates Aston Martin’s success at the 24 Hour of Le Mans, and celebrates the 10-year anniversary of the Q by Aston Martin bespoke personalisation service.

In addition to the two new models, Aston Martin will also display the Valhalla hybrid supercar with a revised concept for its driver-focused interior.

The Aston Martin Valhalla was first revealed in 2021 and is powered by a 4.0-litre flat-plane-crank, twin-turbo V8 engine producing 550kW, hooked up to electric motors on both axles contributing a further 150kW.

Peak combined power is a mind-blowing 700kW, peak torque is 1000Nm, put to the road through an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission.

The 100km/h sprint takes 2.5 seconds, and flat out you’ll be doing 350km/h. Pure electric range is 15km.

The Valhalla is going to be limited to 999 examples and it’ll launch globally in 2023.

Aston Martin is also giving people the “exclusive opportunity” to test drive its DBX707 super SUV throughout the Pebble Beach weekend as well.

The DBX707 is aimed squarely at the Lamborghini Urus and the Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT, with 520kW and 900Nm from its 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine.

Sent to all four wheels through a new nine-speed wet clutch transmission, those swollen outputs – up 115kW and 200Nm on the regular DBX – help catapult the DBX707 to 100km/h in just 3.3 seconds from standstill.

That makes it faster than a Urus (3.6 seconds) in a straight line, and puts it in line with the Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT.

The Aston Martin DBX707 is due to come Down Under, priced from $428,400 before on-road costs.

“We look forward to celebrating Aston Martin’s new era of performance at Pebble Beach and displaying our iconic ultra-luxury models, including a world-first reveal of an exciting new model, and the public debut of another thrilling addition to our breathtaking portfolio,” said Aston Martin head of global marketing and communications Renato Bisignani.

The company revealed an updated version of its classic winged logo earlier this month, which will feature on its next-generation models.
