a hybrid AMG V8 and 1,000 hp!

Aston Martin had initially planned to develop a V6 in-house, but the alliance with Mercedes-AMG shakes up its plans.

After the incredible Valkyrie, Aston Martin plans to develop a full range of mid-engined supercars, equipped with a very worked aero signed Adrian Newey. The first model in this range will be the Valhalla, unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2019.

But Aston Martin has changed a lot since that date: on the brink, the British brand has been taken over by the Canadian Lawrence Stroll, and an acquisition of interests by Mercedes-AMG. What upset the plans that the small builder had set himself then.

The abandoned house V6

In particular, the motorization of the Valhalla will be completely transformed, according to the British Autocar. While Aston Martin was on an all-new in-house turbo hybrid V6, the merger with Mercedes-AMG made it possible to develop a much simpler solution: the Affalterbach engines. And that’s good, since AMG has just announced a new range of hybrid powertrains, with a plug-in hybrid V8 of over 800 hp

It is this V8 and its electric module that the Valhalla should take over, and push up to about 1,000 hp, to tackle the Ferrari SF90 Stradale. So Aston Martin is surfing a revised version of the Valhalla, to integrate this “power unit” in place of the small V6. This modified Valhalla should be presented at the end of the year, before a final version in 2022 and a production launch in 2023.

All of this will pave the way for the electrification of the Aston Martin range, with a hybrid DBX presented at the end of 2021, then rechargeable electric versions in 2023 and 100% electric in 2025.
