The Aston-Martin hypercar formerly known as AM-RB 001 finally has a name that doesn’t sound like R2-D2's love interest in the next Star Wars movie: Valkyrie.
If, for some unholy reason, you weren’t too flummoxed by the amazing Aston Martin and Red Bull Formula One-inspired hypercar project with a one-to-one power-to-weight ratio, Mercedes-AMG is developing a F1-inspired hypercar project with a one-to-one power-to-weight ratio, too.
The Ferrari Enzo is only a couple of years over a decade old, but hypercars have come a long way since then.

You either borrow the impressions of your colleagues, or simply go and buy one you can review. But with a 1.3 million…
Yeah, so, that Car of the Future episode of Nova with Click and Clack just wasn't all that good, sorry about that.
