Surface Transforms provides Aston Martin new Valkyrie with a lightweight, powerful braking system

Aston Martin has released performance figures for its new Valkyrie hypercar. Its 6.5-litre, naturally aspirated V12 produces 1,000bhp at 10,500rpm, 740Nm of torque at 7,000rpm, and will red-line at an amazing 11,100rpm.

The engine was developed in tandem with Cosworth and Red Bull Racing, using expertise gained from their F1 exploits. Most of the V12’s interior components (camshafts, crankshaft, pistons and so on) are milled from solid material. Also, its conrods are Titanium, to help keep weight at a minimum. The result is an engine which only weighs 206kg.

Technology partnerships

Along with such prestigious marks as Cosworth and Red Bull Racing, Alcon and Surface Transforms will provide the Valkyrie with a lightweight, powerful braking system.

 

Surface Transforms plc (LON:SCE) are experts in the development and production of carbon-ceramic materials and the UK’s only manufacturer of carbon-ceramic brakes for automotive use.
