Aston Martin keeps on rolling out the hypercars… the latest being the mysteriously codenamed Project 003, which packs a mean turbo gasoline/electric hybrid powertrain and should be arriving to market sometime in late 2021.
Project 003 will be a direct descendent of Aston Martin's recent Valkyrie hypercars.

Project 003 is the third hypercar to be developed by Aston Martin following the Aston Martin Valkyrie and Valkyrie AMR Pro (formerly ‘001’ and ‘002’). The 003 will have its DNA deeply rooted in the concepts and technology currently being developed for those revolutionary road and track-only machines.

A statement from Aston Martin says that Project 003 ‘will be built around a lightweight structure and powered by a turbocharged petrol-electric hybrid engine. Combined with active aerodynamics for outstanding levels of downforce in a road-legal car, active suspension systems providing next-level precision, control and driver connection like the Aston Martin Valkyrie and Valkyrie AMR Pro, Project 003 will possess class leading dynamics on both road and track’.

Whilst offering a hard-edged performance-focused experience, Aston Martin will also make some concessions to everyday road-use with the 003, such as active suspension and space for luggage.

You’ll be lucky to see one on your local high-street though. Only 500 of the Project 003 will ever be built.

“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. I’m thrilled to announce that this car is the Project 003, and our next step into a dynamic and exacting arena”, says Aston Martin Lagonda Chief Executive, Andy Palmer, who we are sure will reveal more details about Project 003 as we get closer to the anticipated 2021 launch date.
