Like it or not, hybrid technology is here to stay. Aston Martin’s collaboration with Mercedes-AMG has allowed them to save their pennies for something truly revolutionary. In a press release this morning they announced their third hypercar. Following on the successes of the Valkyrie and the Valkyrie AMR (001, and 002), Project 003 will be a street-legal threat to its competitors. Only 500 examples will be built, so I hope my lottery numbers are winners.
A turbocharged engine with hybrid assist will be the backbone of the lightweight machine. It will have room for luggage and will be assembled in left or right-hand-drive. CEO Andy Palmer said: “It was always the intention for the Aston Martin Valkyrie to be a once-in-a-lifetime project, however, it was also vital to us that Valkyrie would create a legacy: a direct descendant that would also set new standards within its own area of the hypercar market, creating a bloodline of highly specialized, limited production machines that can exist in parallel with Aston Martin’s series production models. I’m thrilled to announce that this car is the Project ‘003’, and our next step into a dynamic and exacting arena.”
