Aston Martin Reveals All-New Hybrid V6 With More Power Than A V12

In other words, this brand new engine has been specifically engineered to work in conjunction with hybrid assist, instead of taking an existing engine and modifying it accordingly. The result of this approach will be Aston’s most powerful engine in its entire range. Just to compare, the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera, currently the most powerful model offered, is powered by a twin-turbo 5.2-liter V12 totaling 715 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. No exact power figures have been provided at the moment, but given what that V12 is capable of, the new V6 will be quite something.What’s more, it’ll be compact and lightweight thanks to its ‘hot V’ structure, weighing less than 440 pounds. And in case you’re wondering, it is compact enough to fit in both front and mid-engined vehicles.
