Aston Martin has a twin-turbo V-12 that makes up to 1,160 horsepower, but a new V-6 will be the centerpiece of its new hypercar formula.
Codenamed TM01 (in honor of Tadek Marek, a company engineer in the 1950s and ’60s), the new turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 was designed in-house. It will debut in the upcoming Valhalla supercar in 2022 and offer both hybrid and plug-in hybrid configurations to meet future emissions requirements, including the Euro 7 regulations, the brand announced Monday.
The engine, which initially will be offered in Aston Martin’s upcoming range of mid-engine sports cars, will mount its turbo in the engine’s inside V and come with a dry sump oiling system. Aston Martin said the engine can rev to higher speeds and will combine with hybrid systems to deliver supercar performance. Aston Martin is also working on those hybrid systems in-house.
