Aston Martin currently has three top-end supercars in the works. They are the Valkyrie, the AM-RB 003 and the new Vanquish. We know the Valkyrie will be a bonkers, lightweight hypercar making around 1160hp (865kW) but now, thanks to an alleged dealer brochure, we have an idea about the yet-to-be-named 003.

Apparently, the hybrid AM-RB 003 will be making about 1000hp (746kW) thanks to a twin-turbo V6 and an electric motor on the front axle.

Weight is claimed to be 1350kg, which nets a power to weight ratio of 750hp/tonne. Aston claims 0-100km/h shouldn’t take longer than 2.6 seconds, with a top speed of more than 350km/h.

The AM-RB 003 will be formally named sometime between now and 2021, when the first examples begin shipping out. The model should strike a nice balance between the overt sportiness of the Valkyrie and the more laid back GT style of the Vanquish.
