Cosworth Confirms The Aston Martin Valkyrie Will Have World’s Most Powerful Naturally-Aspirated Engine
Obviously for the screenshot kings in the world, this was far too slow and we got ‘confirmation’ that the naturally-aspirated V12 would be the most powerful such engine ever used in a road car.
Cosworth CEO Hal Reisiger said that the Valkyrie’s 6.5-litrr V12 is being developed to put out “two to three hundred more horsepower” over any other V12 setup on the market. The 6.5-litre V12 in the Ferrari LaFerrari produces a maximum of around 950 hp when the car’s hybrid KERS system kicks in so on a conservative end, Reisiger is hinting at a design that will deliver at least 1,100 hp.
Considering the Valkyrie will set you back around $3.3 million it makes sense to pack such an insane piece of engineering.
