Aston Martin Valkyrie to deliver 1130 horsepower?by Justin King
Cosworth claims its 6.5-liter V12 will be the most powerful naturally aspirated engine ever.
Aston Martin's upcoming Valkyrie may deliver unprecedented power for a naturally aspirated engine.
The car's engine builder, Cosworth, has confirmed that its 6.5-liter V12 will deliver "two to three hundred more horsepower" than any other V12 road car engine, hinting at up to 1,130 ponies, according to Top Gear.
To be fair, the Valkyrie's final output includes a bit of help from an electric motor via a hybrid system.
"Red Bull and Aston Martin had some very specific ideas about this car, which were very well aligned with our capabilities," said Cosworth chief Hal Reisiger. "When they want something like that in a car, that's our wheelhouse."
Production of the multimillion-dollar Valkyrie is expected to begin sometime next year or in 2020.
