Aston Martin says it’s bringing a new car to Monterey Car Week. And this is it.

Looks an awful lot like a Valkyrie, no? Perhaps we’re about to get a new or updated version of the company’s madcap V12 hypercar. In fact, check out the doors—the Valkyrie we know is gullwing, whereas this car’s doors appear to be butterfly-style, hinged from the A-pillar and front wing rather than the roof (because there isn’t one). Whack the brightness up, as we have done above, and you can clearly see the seats’ headrests above the windscreen rail.
