Power specification details of the Aston Martin Valkyrie have been disclosed. The combined output of Valkyrie hypercar is 1,160hp and 900Nm of torque. It is much more than what was earlier reported. Battery electric system is sourced from Rimac which is alone responsible for 160hp and 280Nm of torque. The naturally aspirated 6.5 liter V12 engine generates an impressive 1,000hp and 740Nm of torque (153.8 liter per horsepower). As a refresher, we must remind everyone that Aston Martin Valkyrie is work of many years between the British luxury automaker and Red Bull Advanced Technologies. Hence, the hypercar would be reminiscent of 1990s Formula 1 engines.
David King, Aston Martin VP and special vehicle operations officer said the Valkyrie is an ultimate hypercar in automotive world and the current performance specifications underline the said. He further added Red Bull Advanced Technologies, Cosworth, Rimac and Integral Powertrain Ltd are fantastic partners for development of this powertrain. It also ensures that they have developed a hybrid system that is emissions-compliant and ready to begin fitting to our first physical prototypes. He like any other car fanatic is eager to hear the sound of the Aston Martin Valkyrie on roads.
However, unlike traditional road cars, there are many key components in the Aston Martin Valkyrie that are tasked to do more than one job. For instance, both the V12 engine and the gearbox casing act as stressed members of the vehicle structure. Whereas the later rear suspension mounting points and also adding structural rigidity and eliminating the weight of an additional rear subframe. Moreover, the battery pack also serves as the carrier for the Valkyrie’s power electronics. First prototypes of Aston Martin Valkyrie are being built.
