Aston Martin first introduced and gave a listen to a 3.0-liter V6 with two turbines. This is the first power unit since 1968, which the British automaker developed independently.
The turbocharged power unit received the TM01 in-plant designation in honor of the Polish motor engineer Tadek Marek, who worked for Aston Martin from 1950 to 1960. The mass of the new installation is not more than 200 kilograms. The engine is equipped with a dry-sump lubrication system and turbines in the collapse of the cylinder block. Motorists said that the unit already complies with Euro 7 environmental standards, but the date for their entry into force has not yet been determined.
The new engine will be part of the Valhalla mid-engined supercar hybrid installation. Perhaps the total return will be approximately 1,000 horsepower. At Aston Martin, Valhalla technical specifications have not yet been disclosed, but it has already been announced that the unit will become the most powerful in the history of the brand. Later, other Aston Martin models will receive the new 3.0-liter V6.
Altogether, 500 Aston Martin Valhalla samples will be created, and each will cost at least 875,000 pounds. The start of production of the supercar was postponed from 2021 to 2022.
