Pride of the Valkyries - 1,160 hp and 664 lb.-ft. of torque

The final numbers have been revealed for the howling Aston Martin Valkyrie. The full strength of the hybrid and gas systems will be 1,160 hp and 664 lb.-ft. of torque.
Aston Martin isn't skimping on the heart of its new halo car, the $3.2m Valkyrie. The supercar's engine spits out 1,000 horsepower on its way to an 11,100-rpm red line, the highest yet seen in a road car. And this with no turbos or superchargers.

Cosworth needed to build one from scratch. For a naturally aspirated motor, each cylinder should displace close to 500 cc. Do the math and you get 12 cylinders, which is why a V-10 just wasn't good enough.
As far as spinning goes no street car can even rev to 9,000 rpm. Your family sedan engine spins between 2,000 and 4,000 rpm most of the time.
Attached to the V-12 is a Kinetic Energy Recovery System, KERS. The system recovers energy as the brakes system slows the car, stores it for short-term usage, and provides short boosts directly to the engine. The extra pop from that isn't being revealed yet.
