Evo India - - BRIEFING -

The clos­est ri­val to the project one is the Red Bul­lAs­ton Martin lovechild, the Valkyrie. Both, MercedesAMG Project One and Valkyrie are based on the same phi­los­o­phy: For­mula 1 car for the road. How­ever, be­ing de­vel­oped un­der the su­per­vi­sion of Red Bull ge­nius Adrian Newey, the As­ton is ex­pected to turn the rules of aero­dy­nam­ics up­side down thus mak­ing it look like noth­ing we have ever seen on roads. It will also be ex­tremely light and As­ton ex­pects it to be in the range of 900-1000kg. Pow­er­ing the Valkyrie is a tra­di­tional 6.5-litre V12 by Cos­worth, paired with a crank-mounted elec­tric mo­tor. The V12 makes 800bhp while the elec­tric mo­tor gen­er­ates 200bhp. The cock­pit too is F1-like, with mid­mounted con­trols and the driv­ing po­si­tion puts your legs above the hip point. Who said For­mula 1 is point­less?
