25 Mar 2020 | International News : U.K.


Aston Martin has revealed new details of its new in-house designed V6 engine.

The engine will see deployment in a new range of mid-engined sportscars, starting with the Aston Martin Valhalla from 2022.

Aston Martin's new turbocharged 3.0-litre engine has already undergone extensive testing on the dynamometer
The new engine is codenamed TM01, in celebration of Aston Martin's illustrious engineer of the 50s and 60s, Tadek Marek. It has already undergone a series of extensive testing on the dynamometer, and marks the British brand's first in-house designed engine since 1968.

The development of this engine has taken many key learnings following the development of the Aston Martin Valkyrie, such as the goal of utilising a 'hot V' structure from the start, allowing the compact engine to weigh less than 200kg. 

The engine has been confirmed to be a turbocharged 3.0-litre V6. A new range of hybrid systems will accompany the engine, ensuring that the complete powerplant will be the most powerful in the Aston Martin range when it goes on sale. Final power and torque figures for each application of this powertrain will be configured to suit each individual application and will be confirmed with each product launch.

The engine has been designed to meet emission requirements for the future Euro 7 standard
Aston Martin claims that the engine's performance at high engine speeds combine with the benefits of electrification, to offer the performance characteristics of a mid-engined sportscar brought to an extreme level.

The engine will be positioned directly behind the driver's cabin and equipped with a dry-sump lubrication system to guarantee the lowest possible centre of gravity. The system will also deliver exceptional lubrication performance during on-limit, high-speed cornering. The engine has been designed to meet emission requirements for the future Euro 7 standard.
