Aston Martin has offered the first glimpse at its upcoming Project 003 hypercar, set to hit the market late in 2021.
Power will come from a hybrid-electric powertrain, pairing a turbocharged petrol engine with a battery boost. Aston Martin says it'll borrow technology from its Valkyrie predecessor, but whether the car will be a plug-in or a series hybrid remains to be seen.
We know it'll be more road-oriented than the Valkyrie, with luggage space and other "more practical concessions to road use".
"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 descendent 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’s series production models," said Andy Palmer, Aston Martin CEO and president.
