Aston Martin AMR-One Unleashed
The British automaker Aston Martin revealed last week its AMR-One endurance racer. Wearing a Gulf Oil livery, Aston’s LMP1 car has a bespoke carbon fiber chassis and is powered by a 6-cylinder turbocharged power unit that outputs 540 hp (548 PS / 403 kW). This entire horsepower is sent through the rear wheels via a transversely-mounted semi-automatic Xtrac racing transmission.
The engine ECU, electronics, data system and telemetry has been developed by Cosworth. The AMR One has a curb weight of only 900 kg and measures 4640 mm in length, 1990 mm in width, and has a wheelbase of 2930 mm. The car’s aerodynamics has been developed via CFD in conjunction with Totalsim in order to meet the latest LMP1 requirements.
The company will make six cars, one of them will participate in the International Le Mans Cup and two others will take part in “selected events.” The factory team will consist of Fernandez, Andy Meyrick and Harold Primat in the 009 car. Stefan Mucke, Darren Turner along with another unannounced driver will be behind the wheel of the 007 car.
