Aston Martin's new hypercar project

As we all know that previously Aston Martis has released a teaser from their new hypercar. The teaser in the form of a silhouette of a sedan is a car that Aston Martin calls Project 003. The British premium auto manufacturer says that this is not an ordinary sedan, but this Project 003 is a hypercar. And this hypercar is known to be equipped with a hybrid engine, the turbocharged gasoline engine and an electric engine.

Even so, the detailed specifications have not been opened by Aston Martin, but it's still a teaser. What is clear, the Aston Martin Project 003 is the successor of Aston Martin Project 001 namely Valkyrie, and Project 002 aka Valkyrie AMR Pro. Because it is the next generation of Valkyrie, it doesn't seem too much if you hope this Project 003 engine will be more powerful. 

And just for information, Valkyrie AMR Pro itself uses a hybrid engine, with a V12 engine with a capacity of 6,500 cc that can produce power up to 1,100 hp.

And at one of the world famous auto shows, the Geneva Motor Show 2019, Aston Martin presents a surprise by showing the figure of this newest hypercar. This reflects a significant step by Gaydon to show the line of vehicles at the prestigious auto expo in the world. The 003 will join the next generation of Aston Martin Vanquish concept as a two-pronged attack of these British supercar company. Both Astons are powered by a new self-developed V6. Yes, that's right: Aston Martin will start producing its own engines again - for the first time since the turn of the millennium.

"It has always been the goal of the Aston Martin Valkyrie to be a once-in-a-lifetime project," said Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer. 'However, it is also important to us that Valkyrie will create an inheritance: direct descendants who will also set new standards within their own territory from the hypercar market, creating lineages from very specialized and limited production machinery that can exist in parallel with the Model the production of the Aston Martin series.

'I'm thrilled to announce that this car is the Project ‘003’, and our next step into a dynamic and exacting arena.' This is structured as the next chapter in the Valkyrie story. Most of the technology has been reduced from the maximum Aston and company relationships with F1 designer Adrian Newey, but being used here in the daily hypercar is more useful.

The LMP1-style door cuts the roof, making access easier. This is a full carbonfibre monocoque and 003 bodywork is composite as well, while the suspension is with an active system to meet road or track use.
There are no statistics or performance specifications available, but we know V6 will be combined in this application. Reportedly also this supercar will be delivered to its interested consumer around the upcoming 2021. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CAR MAGAZINE | AUTOBLOG]
