    The F8 is named ‘Tributo’ for a reason. It’s the last of a lineage.

    The first car is the V6? Seems to have a higher pitched sound compared to the other 488 derived mules.

    I’m not big on sound, don’t think it’s a big deal but that sounds worse than my Dyson.

    It doesn't sound good at all, it sounds rubbish, they should go full electric instead, a no-sound is 10000000 times better than a bad sound!

    Since the SF90 is AWD I would assume this one would be too

    I have a lot of clients who are hard of hearing. Sometimes they ask me to say again and repeat. But many times they don’t. They let me go on and on explaining things and give detailed and sometimes complex discussions. I remember on client who was so polite and quiet. It was only after one of their friends telephoned me to explain that the man was very deaf and didn’t understand anything I said.

    Aston's V6. Interesting that it is a "hot V" with exhaust and turbos inside the V and intakes down low on the sides.

    Ferrari did this 40 years ago in F1, but with a 120 deg. V - would be nice to see something like this again. This one looks like 90 deg.:



    Aston Martin previews milestone V-6 engine with British pedigree

    Aston Martin is moving closer to launching a range of midengine sports cars and so the British ultraluxury brand is releasing images and some details about the new V-6 that will provide power.

    The cars will be propelled by a 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6 engine that is Aston Martin's first in-house designed powerplant since 1968.

    Aston Martin did not disclose the engine's output figures but said the "full powertrain will be electrified."

    The engine is being developed for multiple applications and is set to be developed with hybrid and plug-in hybrid systems, an Aston Martin spokesman said.

    The engine is slated to debut in the Valhalla midengine hybrid sports car in 2022. The Valhalla, limited to just 500 units, features a carbon-fiber chassis and body.

    "Moving forward, this power unit will be integral to a lot of what we do and the first signs of what this engine will achieve are incredibly promising," Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer said in a statement.

    The engine is engineered and built in a "hot V" layout, making it compact, with a weight of around 441 pounds. The engine has a dry sump system to provide a lower center of gravity, Aston Martin said.

    Current models in the brand's lineup, including the Vantage and DB11 sports cars, as well as the forthcoming DBX SUV, are powered by a 4.0-liter V-8 engine that is supplied by Mercedes-AMG.

    Aston Martin codenamed the V-6 engine "TM01" as a nod to Tadek Marek, an engineer who worked for Aston Martin in the 1950s and 1960s.
