    Aston Martin has revealed its plans for this year's LeMans Cup series, introducing a brand new LMP1 race car called the AMR-One in the process.

    The AMR-One is powered by a turbocharged and direct-injected inline-six gas engine resting in a carbon fiber monocoque open-top chassis. The Aston's tiny 2.0-liter mill was developed with LeMans Cup's new efficiency regulations in mind.

    There will be six AMR-Ones built in total, with a one-car effort going into the 2011 Intercontinental LeMans series, which includes the 24 Hours of LeMans. Darren Turner and Stefan Mucke plus a third driver (to be determined) will wheel number 007 at LeMans, and Adrian Fernandez, Andy Meyrick and Harold Primat will drive car 009. Follow the jump for Aston's official press blast.
     
  2. sure go from a sexy closed canopy to an open top
     
  3. Why is aston even racing in LMP1? I love aston, but when I think of the brand, I think of Grand Touring cars.
     
  4. side view is kinda sexy front is uglo
     
  5. Because LMP1 makes the biggest headlines and Aston does also make GT1, Gt2, GT3, and GT4 cars as well.
     
  6. Attempt to get the outright win at Le Mans. Something like 1 victory out of hundred tries so far... <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    Relentless they are.
