Let’s not mess around: the Aston Martin Valkyrie will develop 1,160hp and 900Nm of torque.
That’s today’s news straight out of Aston Martin, finally confirming the power output of the naturally aspirated Cosworth V12 which will lie amid the Valkyrie hypercar. We’ve seen the car, we’ve heard the engine, but lordy-lord, those are some big numbers to wrap your head around. For the avoidance of doubt, this thing is going to be fast.
Aston Martin says the 6.5-liter V12 will, on its own, develop a nice, round 1,000hp—at a shrill 10,500rpm. It’ll need revving to 7,000rpm just to generate peak torque of 740Nm.
The company says, nostalgically: “Evoking the spine-tingling, ultra-high-revving F1 engines of the ’90s, but benefiting from two decades of progress in design, material and manufacturing expertise, it sets exceptional new standards for maximum rpm and weight.”
