Valliore Performance Developments

Company History

Established in 1979 by Carl Persson as a skunkworks tuning company specializing in tuning and customizing Voltari vehicles, Valliore quickly gained notoriety for their custom vehicles, including the 1980 Iconis GS-V and 1982 Halcyon VS, Voltari corporate soon took notice. In 1986, Voltari purchased a controlling stake in Valliore, folding it into the larger Voltari Corporation. Official VallioreSport models soon came after, and helped cement Voltari as a performance leader.

As Valliore continued into the 90s, mostly separate from Voltari in their day-to-day operations, they made deals with other companies, like Kozokumi, Akari and other European and American brands. Continued success led Voltari to buy the remaining shares in Valliore, and subsume their operations directly under Voltari in 1996. In the interim, Voltari used Valliore’s engineering experience as the basis of their racing efforts in the 90s, entering DTM, GT1 and WRC, just to name a few. These factory sponsored efforts are what allowed Voltari to dedicate more money to Valliore, and turn them into a fully-fledged sub brand.

In late 1998, Valliore was officially relaunched as an official sub brand of Voltari, with their first model, the GT-36, a front engined, rear-wheel drive sportscar, completely developed in house going on sale soon after. The GT-36 sold well, and until its replacement in 2003 continued to see more improvements and revisions, and is now a cult classic. In 2004, Valliore set on a totally different project- their first mid-engined supercar. Development was completed in just 9 months, with the production Xerxes being revealed in 2005. The Xerxes was the first Valliore to not use any off the shelf parts from Voltari, with an in-house developed chassis, engine and drivetrain. The Xerxes went on to be a top seller for Valliore, and proved their credibility as a dedicated performance-focused brand, and was used as the basis for their GT2 program, based upon the Xerxes.

In the time since, Valliore has expanded out from sports cars, to performance-focused sedans and SUVs, while also having multiple motorsport programs across multiple disciplines, and continue to lead into the forefront of performance vehicles every day.

HÁVUR


H E R E

The Hávur’s exterior design represents a new era for Valliore; Sculpture in Motion. With the hand-crafted side surfacing specially designed to direct hot air from the front brakes away from the body, and cool air into the engine’s radiators, with thin panels above and below connecting to the inner SafetyCELL carbon composite crash structure all ushering in a new direction. The Hávur also sports 19 inch front wheels and 20 inch rear wheels, allowing for a natural rake that gives the Hávur a more menacing stance. Careful consideration was applied to the Hávur’s aerodynamics, with a new active rear wing that can intelligently adjust itself for maximum downforce, or maximum speed, all on its own. The rear diffuser was also specially designed to create a vacuum effect, in conjunction with the front splitter directing airflow into the undertray, gluing the Hávur to the road, unlike any Valliore before it. The Hávur is also available in 13 pre-defined shades (Snö shown here), or owners can use our Bespoke program to choose virtually any colour that they desire.


T H E R E

The Hávur’s cockpit is its control center; its beating heart. With a standard 12.3-inch reconfigurable digital gauge cluster, Hávur grants the driver to near unlimited access to vehicle information, thanks to menus like the G-Meter screen, the ability to customize Thrust Mode parameters from the steering wheel, a navigation display, and more. Occupants also have access to the 10-inch centre display, sporting the newest version of Valliore Interconnect, with revised menu layouts, easier access to important information and a simpler interface design. Comfort is hardly lacking either, with standard 12-way adjustible, heated and ventilated Competition sport seats enveloping the driver and their passenger. Optionally, Hávur owners can have 3D-scanned carbon fiber bucket seats designed to fit them, and them alone. There’s also a heated steering wheel, power adjustible pedals and steering column, dual-zone automatic climate control. Drivers also have access to many of the Hávur’s configurable options directly from the steering wheel, such as the active rear wing mode, the damper setting and exhaust mode. Hávur owners can also choose from 10 pre-determined interior shades in 3 different design styles, or they can use our Bespoke program to choose various exclusive materials and design options that only they desire, like this car here, with the Valliore Bespoke Galactis Blue and Titan color combination shown here.


G O N E

Powering the Hávur is our all-new Z65 powertrain, a 6.5L, direct and port fuel injected V12 with a 9,000 RPM redline, helping to produce an earth-shattering 720 horsepower, mated to an all-new four-wheel drive system with an advanced electronic torque vectoring limited slip differential, routed out through our new 7-speed twin clutch gearbox, capable of shifting from gear to gear in just 0.6 milliseconds. Together, this powertrain renders the Hávur capable of accelerating from zero to 62 miles per hour in just 2.5 seconds, on to a top speed in excess of 217 miles per hour. The Hávur also sports an advanced launch control system, dubbed Thrust Mode; Thrust Mode grants access to several adjustable parameters, like suspension mode, exhaust mode, steering effort, launch RPM and more. With Thrust Mode, launching the Hávur has never been easier. The Hávur is stopped by 4-piston ventilated and cross-drilled brakes front and rear, capable of de-accelerating from 62 miles per hour in just 32.7 meters. The Hávur also sports our new pushrod-type front and rear suspension, with 5-position magnetorheological dampers and active roll bars, capable of adjusting damping forces 1000 times per second. All Hávurs also sport a front axle lift system linked to the car’s navigation, allowing it to go over curbs and bumps in the road with ease, and remember to raise itself at saved locations. Hávurs also have a 360 degree surround view camera system, allowing the driver to see anything and everything in its path. This system also links to the active safety technologies, like adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, low-speed emergency braking, lane recentering, and more.

The Hávur is undoubtedly your best work yet. Judging from the overall shape, I’m assuming you based it on the '95 Super Wedge body set (2.82m wheelbase), but through extensive use of body molding, ended up with the offspring of an Aventador and an Agera - and it looks stunning from every angle, inside and out.

Design and Technology

The Akureyri sports an all-new design language for Valliore, dubbed “Equal Opposites”, which integrates conflicting design elements with our usual sharp and pointed design ethos. This can be seen most clearly with the upper character line, flipping on itself 90 degrees starting on the passenger door and continuing into the extruded taillight design. Aerodynamics also plays a large part in the Akureyri’s design, with active grille shutters, optional Aeroblade wheels, a passthrough front vent that reduces turbulence in the front wheel wells, a rear diffuser with exhaust tips integrated into the diffuser strakes, and aerodynamic door handles that integrate neatly into the window trim. Thanks to these features, the Akureyri has a drag coefficient of just 0.23, letting it slice through the air.

Exterior technology on the Akureyri is extensive, with our first application of LIDAR, allowing for full SAE Level 2 driver autonomy at launch, and support for Level 3 with a future update. The LIDAR system links with the standard radar system and forward facing cameras to enable our first application of ActiveDrive, our in-house developed full-self driving technology, which will be supported on most major roads when the Akureyri is available for sale. From there, Akureyris also feature our Virtual Mirror system with a variable field of view, which adjusts as needed according to weather conditions, traffic density, and various other parameters. Akureyris also have our standard suite of advanced driver assistance technologies, like blind spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking on the front and rear, lane departure warning with active lane keep assistance, traffic sign recognition, night vision with pedestrian detection, active parking assistance, rear cross-traffic alert, surround view monitoring, crosswind stabilization, and more.

The Akuryeri also features a suite of exterior convenience features, like a power liftback with Intrusion Detection and gesture control, soft-close doors with automatic walk-away lock and unlock, Intelligent Access, phone-as-a-key, smart park technology allowing the driver to move the Akureyri forwards and back at low speeds with the keyfob, Active Matrix LED head and taillights with adaptive beam and corner control, an electronically releasing charge port door on RSe and above, an active rear wing with 3 pre-defined positions and fuzzy logic, the ability to raise itself automatically for easier exit and entry, and more.

Drivetrain and Chassis

Underpinning the Akureyri is the all-new “Icarus” platform, constructed of lightweight AHS steel, which provides 45% greater structural rigidity over Icarus’s predecessor, while also weighing as much as 250 kilograms lighter. Icarus was developed to support ICE and EV vehicles, rear-wheel and all-wheel-drive, across a wide range of vehicles, from liftback sedans like the Akureyri, to full-size SUVs and more. The Akureyri also has high-strength aluminum body panels, providing increased rigidity, and reducing weight over its predecessor. Each Akureyri is hand-assembled at our all-new Factory ONE facility in Gothenburg, which features tooling exclusively designed for the Icarus platform.

Suspending the Akureyri is a 5-link multilink suspension design on both ends, with standard magnetorheological dampers providing 6 selectable modes, and 2 air suspension options- a standard hydraulic system, or an optional (standard on RSe and above) 48-volt dynamic height-adjustable system that links with the dampers, GPS and radar systems to adapt to changing road conditions in a matter of milliseconds. The second system also allows the Akureyri to “lean” into corners, virtually eliminating any body roll and providing superior cornering performance, as well as enabling the ability to raise one side of the vehicle in the event of a side impact, reducing the change of injury to the occupants. All Akureyris also have a standard electromechanical rear-wheel steering system, providing 6 degrees of adjustability on lower trims, or 10 degrees of adjustability on the RSe and above.

Powering the Akureyri is a hand-built 4.0 liter twin-turbocharged and intercooled 32-valve 90-degree V8, with direct and port fuel injection, continuously variable valve timing and variable valve lift, producing 600 horsepower and 570 pounds-feet of torque on its own, but in RSe and Edition One models, it’s further complimented by 3 radial flux electric motors, with one on each front wheel, and the last mounted between the engine and transmission, with a 30kwh battery mounted in the chassis tunnel providing 115 kilometers of electric only range on the NEDC cycle.

The combined system output for RSe and Edition One models is 750 horsepower and 936 pounds-feet of torque, with both powertrain options being mated to an electronically controlled 8-speed automatic with manual shifting capabilities, and an advanced all-wheel drive system with electronically controlled limited slip differential, providing active torque vectoring and surefootedness in any condition. This powertrain allows the RSe Edition One shown in this presentation to accelerate from zero to 62 miles per hour in 3.1 seconds, onto an electronically limited top speed of 190 miles per hour.
RSe and Edition One models also feature the exclusive Thrust mode, unlocking all 750 horsepower and enabling launch control, for atmospheric launches.

Interior

Moving to the Akureyri’s interior, you’re greeted with a technological masterpiece, just a fingertip away. Standard on all Akureyris is the newest Valliore Interface, consisting of dual upper 13.4-inch displays and a lower 8.8-inch display, where the upper displays act as the gauge cluster and central infotainment display, and the lower display acts as a hub for climate functions, a keyboard/writing pad for entering text, and quick access to important applications. You can also send programs from the lower display to the upper display, expanding their functionality with just a quick swipe. The Akureyri also has standard wired and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, giving you multiple options for daily usability. There’s also dual 7-inch touch-enabled displays for the Virtual Mirror system, and passengers aren’t left out of the equation, as they have dual 15.6-inch displays for media, controlling the rear climate zones, and controlling other various functions across the Akureyri.

Creature comforts are far from lacking, with all 4 occupants having access to 30-way Active Posture front and rear seats, with heating, ventilation, massage, and 2-position memory controls for the front occupants. The Akureyri also has a digital auto-dimming rearview mirror with compass functionality and Homelink, a heated and power-adjustable steering wheel with three 1.6-inch reconfigurable displays, power-adjustable pedals, 64-color ambient lighting, the Interaction Bar with capacitive controls, 4-zone climate control, and a 25-speaker Signature Audio system with dual motorized tweeters and Surround Audio technology, all standard.

Unquestionably one of the best uses of the 4-door version of the Polestar mod body. It and the Hávur would make a great 2-car garage if you could only choose from Valliore’s lineup.
