The first prototypes of the Valkyrie are starting to take shape, following this Aston Martin have now released the full performance figures delivered by the hybrid powertrain.
Setting new standards for maximum rpm and power-to-weight ratio, the Valkyrie’s powertrain is formed around its Cosworth-built 6.5 litre V12 engine.
Reaching a maximum power output of 1,000bhp at 10,500rpm it has the potential to hit a maximum 11,100rpm. Peak torque is 740Nm at 7,000rpm, all delivered by the Internal Combustion Engine (ICE). The rpm and power output are a world first for an emission-compliant, naturally-aspirated road car.
Unlike a traditional car, many of the Valkyrie’s components have more than one role, this is a result of it being created from a technical partnership between Aston Martin and Red Bull Advanced Technologies.
The hybrid system was created by Rimac who provided the lightweight hybrid battery system and Integral Powertrain Ltd, who produced the custom-made electric motor.
An additional 160bhp of power and a further 280Nm of available torque, putting the Valkyrie’s max power output at an outstanding 1,160bhp @ 10,500rpm. The full hybrid systems peak torque stands at 900Nm @ 6,000rpm.
The Valkyrie’s evolution continues with guidance from Aston Martin Lagonda, Red Bull Advanced Technologies and project partner AF racing.
Pricing and release date are yet to be confirmed.
