Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar’s 6.5 litre V12 will produce over 746kW and 740Nm
The details of Aston Martin’s Valkyrie supercar have emerged. This time, the latest information centres around the Valkyrie’s engine: it’s a 6.5 litre V12 that has been co-developed with engineering outfit Cosworth.
The monstrous engine is said to develop 746kW at 10,500rpm, with a redline of a dizzying 11,100rpm. Maximum torque is 740Nm and is produced at 7000rpm.
These aren’t the final power and torque figures, though. Oh no. The Valkyrie’s engine will be boosted by a hybrid system.
Yes, the Aston Valkyrie will be completely mental. Interestingly, Aston insisted on a naturally aspirated engine “to anyone with a drop of petrol in their blood, a high-revving naturally aspirated V12 is the absolute pinnacle,” Aston Martin chief executive Andy Palmer said.
“Nothing sounds better or encapsulates the emotion and excitement of the internal combustion engine more completely.
“Despite the apparently insurmountable challenges it presented, there was never any question that the Aston Martin Valkyrie would make do with anything less.
“The result is a quite extraordinary engine. One which I doubt will ever be surpassed.”
