We knew already that the Aston Martin Valhalla was the next supercar from the British supercar manufacturer’s stable and finally we had an idea of its strength. It’s a brand new twin-turbo V6, code-named TM01 3,0-Liter engine.
This is named after Tadek Marek, the leading Aston Martin designer back in the 1950s and 1960s, and this new engine is the first since 1968 to be built in-house.
Aston Martin Valhalla Specifications
A V6 means the new motor is built in a V configuration with both turbos incorporated between the banks of the engine. The motor reduces the size to less than 200 kg and is intended to be paired with an electric engine. So yeah! Ok, yeah! This will be the most powerful and hybrid in the Aston Martin range.
The power statistics of the engine are not yet verified but there are reports that it will produce almost 1000 bhp. This being said, when the production car is announced, the numbers can marginally vary as the car and engine are still being checked, and Aston Martin had previously indicated this power estimates can only be released until it debuts in 2022.
Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer Andy Palmer said, “This is a great idea to invest in your own powertrains, but our team has taken up the challenge. Going forward, this powertrain will be central to all of the things we do and the first signs of the success of this engine will be extremely encouraging.”
