Aston Martin has given us a rundown on the details of the in-house-developed V6 engine which will power its forthcoming Valhalla hypercar that's due out in 2022. Codenamed TM01, in honour of Aston Martin's 1950s and '60s engineer Tadek Marek, the 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 has undergone a series of extensive tests on the dyno, as it will be the first in-house designed engine from Aston Martin since 1968. The unit itself will form part of an electrified drivetrain, so Aston is also working on a range of hybrid systems that will 'ensure that the complete unit will become the most powerful in the Aston Martin range when on sale'. Yes, that's right: it should have more thump than the Valkyrie, with its 1,000hp V12. Yikes! Like the 4.0-litre AMG-derived biturbo V8 found in vehicles like the Vantage AMR, the V6 bound for Valhalla has a hot-inside-V structure, meaning the engine weighs less than 200kg all-in. In the Valhalla, it will be sited behind the driver's cabin and will be dry-sumped to ensure the lowest possible centre-of-gravity; more impressively, it will meet emission requirements for Euro 7. Joerg Ross, Aston's powertrain chief engineer, said: "This project has been a great challenge from the start. Putting a team together to deliver what is going to be the future power of Aston Martin has been an honour. From the very beginning, we have had the freedom to explore and innovate in a way that we have not been able to do so in a very long time. Most importantly, we wanted to create something that is befitting of the TM01 nameplate and create something that would have impressed our predecessor and pioneering engineer, Tadek Marek."
