Aston Martin confirms performance figures for full hybrid powertrain
Aston Martin Valkyrie boasts maximum power of 1,160bhp @ 10,500rpm and peak combined torque of 900Nm at 6,000rpm
Naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 alone delivers 1,000bhp @ 10,500rpm and 740Nm @ 7000rpm
Battery-electric system by Rimac and Integral Powertrain Ltd. delivers additional 160bhp and 280Nm
Aston Martin Valkyrie the result of technical partnership between Aston Martin and Red Bull Advanced Technologies
First Aston Martin Valkyrie prototypes in build now


With the first Aston Martin Valkyrie prototypes beginning to take shape, now is the time to reveal the full performance figures delivered by Aston Martin Valkyrie’s hybrid powertrain.


The heart of the Aston Martin Valkyrie’s powertrain is its clean sheet Cosworth-built 65° naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine. Evoking the spine-tingling, ultra-high-revving F1TM engines of the 1990s, but benefitting from two decades of progress in design, material and manufacturing expertise, it sets exceptional new standards for maximum rpm and weight.


With a certified peak power output of 1,000bhp (or 153.8 bhp-per-litre) at 10,500rpm, it can continue on to a maximum 11,100rpm. This is a world first for a naturally-aspirated, emissions-compliant road car. Peak torque is 740Nm at 7,000rpm. These peak outputs are purely delivered by the ICE (Internal Combustion Engine), with a further performance boost delivered by the battery hybrid system.

When describing the powertrain of a traditional road car, or even a conventional hybrid road car, it is easy to separate the main components and describe their individual roles. In the Aston Martin Valkyrie, where the design and engineering of each and every part has been approached with the meticulous ethos of Red Bull Advanced Technologies, out of their Formula One® DNA for maximum efficiency and ultimate performance, many key components do more than one job.
