阿斯顿·马丁's Valkyrie 甚至还没有开始交付，但是这家英国汽车制造商已经在嘲笑即将推出的超级跑车。
阿斯顿·马丁 on Thursday released a teaser sketch for a new hypercar code-named the 003 and slated to arrive on the market in late 2021. For those counting, the Valkyrie carries the 001 code name while the track-only Valkyrie AMR Pro 带有002名称。
The 003 isn't to be confused with the mid-engine supercar that 阿斯顿·马丁 will launch in 2020 作为新的Vanquish. The mid-engine supercar will be a permanent addition to 阿斯顿·马丁's lineup while the 003 will be a limited edition along the lines of the Valkyrie.
It will also feature design, technology and a lightweight ethos inspired by the Valkyrie, combined with a new hybrid powertrain utilizing a turbocharged engine as its internal combustion component. The car will also benefit from active aerodynamics and suspension, no doubt honed by the boffins at the 阿斯顿·马丁 Red Bull 竞速 Formula 1 team.

阿斯顿·马丁 will build 500 examples of the 003 in coupe format, compared to 175 Valkyries. The automaker hasn't said whether a convertible will be added but it is a possibility. Crucially, the 003 will likely be the car that 阿斯顿·马丁 uses for the 2020/2021 World Endurance Championship's new Hypercar class 汽车制造商最终是否应该加入，这意味着我们可以在勒芒看到它的版本。
Valkyrie buyers shouldn't feel like 阿斯顿·马丁 is already offering a superior hypercar. The 003 will be a more comfortable, more usable car—we're told there will be space for luggage—with positioning more in line with cars like the Ferrari LaFerrari and McLaren P1, which is why 阿斯顿·马丁 executives have referred to it as the 女武神的“儿子”或“兄弟”.
