Aston Martin Valhalla Buyers Are In For A Surprise

“With the transformational technology agreement with Mercedes-Benz, there are other chances for us regarding combustion engines, but we still have an electrified drivetrain.” Mercedes owns a 20 percent stake in AM, giving the latter direct access to a number of powertrains, including straight-up combustion engines, hybrids, and other vital electrical hardware.In his latest update, Moers added Valhalla customers with confirmed deposits will be the first to know which engine is chosen and other vital details, but it definitely won’t be the 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 with hybrid assistance, codenamed TM01. With its “hot V” layout, the in-house-designed and lightweight engine (just 440 pounds) was initially said to develop somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,000 horsepower.
