Aston Martin has begun teasing a new mid-engined hypercar dubbed Project \u2018003.\u2019 It\u2019s Aston Martin\u2019s third hypercar following the Valkyrie and Valkyrie AMR Pro. 003 will receive an equally badass name at a later date.\r\n\r\nAston Martin is aiming for class-leading dynamics on both road and track. Project \u2018003\u2019 will be built around a lightweight structure and powered by a turbocharged petrol-electric hybrid engine. Combine the powertrain with active aerodynamics, active suspension systems and a driver connection like the Valkyrie and Valkyrie AMR Pro. The result? Anyone\u2019s guess at this stage. It\u2019s bound to be impressive though.\r\n\r\nProject \u2018003\u2019 is also being designed and engineered to offer more practical concessions to road use, including space for luggage. It will be available in all markets in both left and right-hand drive. Production will be limited to 500 examples, with the first cars arriving to market in late 2021.\r\n\r\n\u201cIt 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,\u201d says Andy Palmer, Aston Martin Lagonda President and Group Chief Executive.\r\n\r\n\u201cA direct descendant that would also set new standards within its own area of the hypercar market, creating a bloodline of highly specialised, limited production machines that can exist in parallel with Aston Martin\u2019s series production models. I\u2019m thrilled to announce that this car is the Project \u2018003\u2019, and our next step into a dynamic and exacting arena.\u201d\r\nCheck it out\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
