The Aston Martin Valkyrie makes 1160 hp from its hybrid V-12

Aston Martin finally revealed power specifications for its upcoming Valkyrie mild-hybrid hypercar, totaling 1160 hp at 10,500 rpm and 664 lb-ft at 6000 rpm. With insane output like that, how could a gas-electric hybrid with a 160-hp, 205 lb-ft electric motor be described as a mild hybrid? After all, 160 horsepower is more power than my Honda Fit produces, but when that electric motor is assisting a 1000-hp 6.5-liter V-12, the technical moniker somehow doesn’t encapsulate how ridiculous this machine will be.
