Aston Martin’s next step into the mid-engined hypercar market has been confirmed with the release of the first official details of Project 003. Aston Martin Project ‘003’ is the third hypercar to be developed by the English car manufacturer following the Valkyrie and Valkyrie AMR Pro (formerly ‘001’ and ‘002’), 003 has its DNA deeply rooted in concepts and technology currently being developed for those revolutionary road and track-only machines. Project ‘003’ will be built around a lightweight structure and powered by a turbocharged petrol-electric hybrid engine. Project ‘003’ is also being designed and engineered to offer more practical concessions to road use, including space for luggage. Fully homologated and available in all markets in both left and right-hand drive, production will be limited to 500 coupe examples globally, with the first cars arriving to market in late 2021.
