While Aston Martin has happily revealed all about the Valkyrie’s astonishing Cosworth-built N/A V12, the hybrid part of the equation has remained a mystery. Therefore, we haven’t known the full output of the bonkers hypercar. Until now, that is.
The hybrid gubbins act as the 160bhp, 207lb ft icing on the Valkyrie cake, bringing the total output to 1160bhp. Remember, the anticipated weight figure is around 1100kg. Yep, this thing is going to be quick.
The peak power figure comes in at 10,500rpm, while the 546lb ft peak torque figure arrives at 6000rpm.
The system comprises an electric motor supplied by Integral Powertrain Ltd, which sits between the engine and the gearbox, and a lightweight battery system built by Rimac. The operation of the setup is likened to an F1 Kers-style boost. The Rimac battery pack is also responsible for powering all of the cars other electronic systems.
Fittingly, Aston Martin chose to send out the press release with images of a Valkyrie decked out in a ‘design specification’ called ‘Maximum’. We dig it.
The company also announced that the very first Valkyrie prototypes are now being built. It won’t be long before we get to see the car in action…
