Aston Martin 'Project 003' teased


It must surely be taken as positive news that the development of Aston Martin’s portfolio can be difficult to keep track of nowadays. DB11 was followed by Vantage and then DBS in quick succession, with those respective ranges also expanding at pace and the limited run cars progressing swiftly too.

But now Aston has chosen to bring attention back to another of its ventures: the Project 003, first confirmed last year as a mid-engined hypercar to sit above the next Vanquish and below the Valkyrie in its growing range.

There’s nothing new today on exactly what the car will be - see here for the full story from last year - instead a better look on what the 003 will look like. From this picture we can see 600LT-style high exhaust pipes and a rear view with a hint of AMG One to it - long, slender lights, prominent haunches and, while it can’t be seen at the moment, you’d have to assume a chunky rear diffuser down there as well. Certainly, there’s no danger of it looking like any other Astons…

That’s your lot for now then, with plenty more to follow as 2021 nears. Like what you see thus far? We’re eagerly anticipating the next instalment…

    To be unveiled at Geneva perhaps. There's some new things that haven't been on an Aston before. No doubt it'll upset some purists and traditionalists, but it's set to be a monster car, aimed at the likes of the Senna (but somewhat more aesthetically pleasing).

    Looks pretty tasty. Aston Matrin, you seem to be very much on the ball with. Add a bit more design restraint to the DB models, especially on the interiors and be in top form Aston.

    I thought more 488/720s territory?

    Nope

    That is the production car that will follow. This is a P1/918/Senna type car, so more a hypercar as we know them today, rather than Valkyrie which is far more extreme again
