The new super sports car Aston Martin Valhalla which will debut in 2022 will have an unprecedented hybrid V6 unit new generation. Although the launch of this model still lacks a lot of time, the English manufacturer has shared some interesting details on the “highlight” of this model, namely the engine.

TM01 is the code name of this new unit which has already carried out a series of functional tests. This is an engine entirely designed internally by Aston Martin. Specifications in hand, this unit is a 3-liter turbocharged V6 which can be combined with a hybrid system. Unfortunately, the details of power and torque have not yet been shared, but we can expect really important numbers. However, there is a number and it is that of weight: only 200 Kg. A very interesting detail that speaks volumes about the work that the English technicians are doing.

The unit will then be mounted centrally on the future Aston Martin Valhalla and will have a dry sump to keep the center of gravity as low as possible. But although this unit has been developed for maximum performance, it is also particularly clean as it is already ready for to be homologated Euro 7. An overall technical choice very different from that, for example, made for the 700 HP V12 Speedster but this new engine will certainly not disfigure in terms of performance.

An engine that is part of a larger Aston Martin project as this unit will also be used for many future models of the British brand that will be hybrids and Plug-in hybrids. For lovers of the technique, the brand has released a short video showing the new engine on the test bench.

Andy Palmer, President Aston Martin and Group CEO, commented on the new engine as follows:

Investing in an internally designed engine is a difficult task, but our team has proven to be up to the challenge. A tending, this engine will be integrated in most of our offer, and the anticipations of what this product will be able to achieve are extremely promising.
