The power plant will also be electrified.

Recently, the automaker issued a press release stating that the Aston Martin Valhalla supercar will be equipped with a new 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 with a hybrid component. The engine is codenamed TM01 after the engineer Tadek Marek, who worked in the 1950s and 60s. Aston Martin has not yet published the characteristics of the TM01 engine, but earlier information appeared on the network that its power would exceed 1,000 hp. The company’s announcement said that these specifications will only appear when the Valhalla supercar debuts in 2022.

The power plant has a V-shaped layout, which allows you to place the turbine along between the rows of cylinders. The automaker reports that the engine weighs less than 200 kg. But the company is trying not to talk about the hybrid component of the new motor. However, the automaker promises that “the complete kit will be the most powerful in the Aston Martin lineup.”

Recall that Aston Martin plans to collect only 500 units of Valhalla. The cost of each hypercar will be about 875 thousand pounds or about (890 thousand US dollars. The car will be equipped with a wing at the rear of FlexFoil, which can change the amount of downforce without changing the angle, in addition to the lack of resistance, turbulence or wind noise .
