Aston Martin to fit a V6 motor on upcoming mid-engined sports car

Aston Martin to fit a V6 motor on upcoming mid-engined sports car

Sources suggest that Aston Martin plans to use a turbocharged V6 motor in its mid-engined sports car that will sit right below the brand’s high-performance Valkyrie. This is in stark comparison to its rivals like the mid-engined Ferrari 488 and McLaren 720S which use V8 motors.

Andy Palmer, CEO of Aston Martin, told reporters that in addition to the marque’s favouring a smaller V6 over a V12 or V8 motor in their upcoming sports car, they will also use a manual gearbox. It is believed that the reason behind this is    the displacement-based laws that some markets might impose on high-capacity engined cars (like China) in the future, unless a hefty tax is borne.  

The upcoming Aston Martin mid-engined V6 sports car will be built at their Gaydon production facility in the United Kingdom. As the car is still in its early stages of development, details such as the power output and price are yet to be known. However, reports state that this V6 sports car will debut a year after the DBX crossover hits the international arena, which is sometime in the fourth quarter of 2020. Until then, keep a tab on the CarWale news channel for more information on Aston Martin’s plans.
