Aston’s new Valkyrie sounds like an old F1 car

Aston’s new Valkyrie sounds like an old F1 car

We now know what a 840kW+ engine sounds like, and it’s intense.

This hypercar, orginally codenamed AM-RB 001, gained its official title in March of last year, a title inspired by Norse mythology just days after the development of the Valkyrie in conjunction with Red Bull Advanced Technologies was announced.

Meanwhile an update in July 2017 described the exterior and interior design.

This past Monday, Cosworth, a company specializing in high-performance internal combustion engines and the brain behind that of the Valkyrie’s, tweeted a picture of the legendary car, captured by Motor1, captioned “We’re famous for breaking records and our latest engine, the Aston Martin Valkyrie 6.5-litre V12, will be the world’s most powerful naturally aspirated road engine with 842kW. #Cosworth #AstonMartinValkyrie,” which was promptly removed.

Following this short-lived teaser, we were graced with Palmer’s tweet, revealing exactly what 842kW sounds like.

According to Road Show, the hypercar is expected to go on sale next year costing “about as much as a nice private island.” Nevertheless, after nearly two years of waiting to see this mythological car come to life, seeing one roar live promises to be amazing. – AFP Relaxnews
