Ri­val war­fare

Wheels (Australia) - - Redline -

There’s re­ally only one Project One ri­val: the As­ton Martin Valkyrie. Like the AMG, As­ton’s forth­com­ing hy­per­car will be brim­ming with F1 tech thanks to its chief creative force, Formula 1 guru and aero­dy­namic mas­ter­mind Adrian Newey. Power comes from a hy­brid pow­er­train, head­lined by a 6.5-litre Cos­worth V12, with As­ton claim­ing Valkyrie will lap Sil­ver­stone faster than an LMP1 racer. It also has an un­can­nily sim­i­lar in­te­rior to the AMG, with both cars us­ing mul­ti­ple dash-mounted screens and square F1-style steer­ing wheels.
