Aston Martin Valkyrie Performance Figures Revealed
The maximum power output stands at 1,160bhp @ 10,500rpm and 900Nm @ 6,000rpm
The British automaker has finally revealed the official performance numbers of the Aston Martin Valkyrie as the production cars are near completion. The hybrid powertrain includes a Cosworth-built 65° naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine producing a spine-tingling 1,000bhp (or 153.8 bhp-per-liter) at 10,500rpm, which can bump to 11,100rpm and 740Nm of torque at 7,000rpm. The Internal Combustion Engine’s output is further augmented by the battery’s hybrid system, which adds 160bhp and 280Nm of torque. Overall, the maximum power output of Aston Martin Valkyrie stands at 1,160bhp @ 10,500rpm and 900Nm @ 6,000rpm.
The advanced powertrain is a brainchild of Red Bull Advanced Technologies. The company implemented their decades of experience in Formula One to create this exceptional powertrain where each component is a part of a larger system carrying out multiple tasks at a time, unlike traditional hybrid systems where every part performs one role.
Integral Powertrain Ltd and Rimac are the brains behind the KERS-style boost system, which works similar to systems used in F1 vehicles. The hybrid system takes shape with a customized electric motor from Integral Powertrain Ltd and the battery from Rimac.
Vice President & Special Vehicle Operations Officer, David King stated, “Aston Martin Valkyrie is set to be the ultimate hypercar in the automotive world and these performance figures underline that statement. Red Bull Advanced Technologies, Cosworth, Rimac and Integral Powertrain Ltd. have been fantastic partners in the development of this powertrain, ensuring that we have already created a hybrid system that is emissions-compliant and ready to begin fitting to our first physical prototypes. I am, as I’m sure the rest of the world is, incredibly excited to see and hear the first of these cars on track”.
The Aston Martin Valkyrie production project is being supervised by Aston Martin Lagonda, Red Bull Advanced Technologies and AF Racing.
