Initially called the AM-RB 003 and referred to as the “Son of Valkyrie”, the production version of the concept is finally out in the form of the Aston Martin Valhalla. It is highlighted with a more powerful engine sourced from AMG. It should be noted that the car was supposed to follow Adrian Newey’s design, which was closely associated with the Valkyrie.

No Point in Setting a New Nurburgring Record with the Project One

Mercedes-AMG CEO Tobias Moers is confident that the Project One can set a record of its own at the Nurburgring track. However, he currently doesn’t see a reason why they have to do it.

Driven by Timo Bernhard, a works Porsche driver, the vehicle covered a lap in five minutes and 19.55 seconds. The time was almost a minute faster than Stefan Bellof’s record lap run in 1983 with his Porsche 956. Moers told Motoring that he saw the lap record run of the modded 919 Evo and he was impressed by it. When… Continue Reading »

He emphasized that the Black Series treatment is only given to cars that are worthy of the racetrack. It should be noted that the AMG brand has expanded drastically in the past few years. They now offer the 43 series models in addition to their 45, 63, 63 S and 65 series vehicles. The present SUVs of Mercedes… Continue Reading »

Official teaser photos of the car have already started surfacing the Internet. However, it is still hard to make out many of its key exterior elements because the unit is still clad in a zebra camouflage.
