Aston Martin Valkyrie will be the most powerful car allowed on public roadsOctober 1, 2018
The project Aston Martin Valkyrie is unique in its kind and is created in close cooperation with the sports team of Red Bull and the manufacturer of motors Cosworth. The car promises to become the most powerful in history, admitted to public roads.
Cosworth is the foremost and most authoritative when it comes to powertrains, regardless of whether it’s supercars, or the legendary Mercedes-Benz 190E. Now the company promises to create a special motor for Aston Martin Valkyrie, which will become the most powerful power unit ever installed on a car admitted to public roads.
Cosworth is developing, testing and manufacturing the Valkyrie engine, which makes the firm the third partner in a large project. As the CEO of Cosworth himself notes: “Red Bull and Aston Martin have carefully thought out a common project, and have approached us with specific requirements and proposals based on our real capabilities. ”
And previously on Twitter from the company Cosworth there was a message that the model will receive 1,130 horsepower, and whether it was only an ICE power, or the total power of the hybrid installation is unknown. However, now the tweet is removed, and there is very little official information.
But given the loud statement about the most powerful engine on the production car, and also considering that now the most powerful road car is the Ferrari 812 Superfast with a 6.5-liter V12 with a capacity of up to 789 hp. However, this motor is not equipped with a turbocharger. Therefore, it seems that the capacity of 1,130 horsepower is quite real for ICE.
Aston Martin Valkyrie will be released in only 150 copies, and the first cars will appear in 2019. At this point, all the hypercards have already been sold out on pre-order, and messages began to appear that the seats in the queue are already being resold with a large cheat. The company promises to cancel the reservation if it learns about the facts of the resale of the place in the queue.
In the meantime, the Aston Martin has a taste for hybrid supercars. The company announced a new model under the factory designation Project 003. This will be the third such car, which will be released after Valkyrie (Project 001) and Valkyrie AMR Pro.
