More details for Aston Martin’s highly anticipated hyper car have been announced.

The British car maker has kept most of the details under wraps until now, with the announcement of its powerful F1-inspired engine.


Co-developed with performance engine builder Cosworth, the naturally-aspirated engine that Aston calls an 'absolute masterpiece’ is a huge 6.5-litre V12 engine.

With 745kW and a peak torque output of 740Nm available at 7,000rpm, it keeps going right up to a maximum of 11,100rpm. Aston Martin says the new power figures are unprecedented for a naturally-aspirated, emissions-compliant road car application.

The new engine is also set to get a boost from a battery hybrid system, but Aston won’t reveal detailed specs until later in the supercar's development program.

The engine has also been designed to optimise minimum mass and maximum strength, with a majority of its internals machined from solid material including titanium conrods and F1TM-spec pistons.

Aston Martin’s Valkyrie will be available in road-registrable form as well as a race track-ready version.
