Aston Martin is busy in the development of Valkyrie. Earlier this month, a prototype was spotted at Silverstone circuit in UK undergoing tests and was filmed by a fan. We first got to see Aston Martin Valkyrie prototype in the month of July and the video which was shared didn’t gave us any proper sound of the hypercar. For those who are not familiar, Valkyrie’s engine is developed by Cosworth that displaces 6.5-liters and revs up to 11,200 rpm in the final production car. It is likely that the engine in the discussed prototype doesn’t rev that high and might be tested at lower rpms
In the attached video, we would also see driver short shifting and looks like having a beefier muffler. Road-going version won’t have it, but we are more than happy to see what the final production car has to offer. Without an iota of doubt, Aston Martin Valkyrie sounds incredible. It has all the potential to redefine what we know about and though about high performance hypercars. The 6.5-liter V12 Cosworth developed engine generates an impressive 1,000hp and 740 Nm of torque. This makes it most powerful naturally aspirated road car engine till date.
The engine works in conjugation with an electric motor and battery pack developed by Rimac and Integral Powertrain. It adds another 160hp and 280 Nm of torque. Andy Palmer, who is Group Chief Executive and Aston Martin Lagonda President said that Aston Martin Valkyrie continues to redefine what a hypercar means. Not only it possesses unrivaled level of performance but is also technologically beyond anything else. Do check out the video of Aston Martin Valkyrie which you have eagerly waiting for.
