On Monday, Aston Martin shared a little bit about the Valhalla’s powertrain. At its heart is an all-new turbocharged 3.0L V6. It’s the first in-house engine by Aston Martin since Tadek Marek’s 5.3L V8 of 1968; since then, the company has used straight sixes borrowed from Jaguar, V12s that came from Ford, and more recently, V8s built by Mercedes-AMG. (The Valkyrie also gets a unique engine, but at twice the price, it gets twice the cylinders and more than twice the capacity, as it’s a 6.5L V12 designed by Cosworth.)

That a converted MacDonald’s in the background?
