After over a year of rumors, tweets, and teasers, Aston Martin has finally announced official power numbers for its Valkyrie hypercar; 116o BHP and 664 pound-feet of torque. Valkyrie uses a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V-12 that revs to 11,100 RPM, paired with a single-motor F1-style KERS hybrid system.

Describing a vehicle as a race car for the street is a cliché, but it’s an apt description for the Valkyrie. Aston Martin says that the V12 takes inspiration from the Formula 1 mills of the 1990s, which is benefitting from two decades of progress in design, material, and manufacturing expertise.” Also, the engine and transmission function as stressed members of the vehicle, including acting as mounting points for the rear suspension.

Interestingly, the V12 is used as a grip for the Valkyrie’s rear, which is a structural component of the car’s chassis supporting the back wheels and suspension. The Valkyrie would be cut in half by its removal, erasing the physical connection between the front and rear wheels.  Taking into concern the car’s design is dominated by the laws of aerodynamics, i.e., forces enabled according to the motion of air. The two huge Venturi Tunnels set along the side of the cockpit, around the engine with two vents in the Valkyrie’s front splitter, provides considerable gains in downforce.

For buyers who want the ultimate version of the Valkyrie and don’t mind sacrificing the ability to drive the hypercar on the road, there’s the optional AMR Track Performance Pack. The circuit-spec variant has revised body panels for better performance on the track, titanium brakes, magnesium wheels with carbon fiber aero rings, and different suspension settings.
