Aston Martin Project 003 hypercar teased again debuts in 2021

first_imgIt’s still hard to tell much about the car’s design, but it’ll definitely have an exotic shape. Aston Martin Aston Martin on Tuesday gave us a better look at Project 003, its next hypercar that is due to launch in late 2021. While we’ll still have to wait some time for more details, the latest teaser photo is a fair bit more revealing than the line-drawing sketch Aston released in September 2018.The codename Project 003 signals that it’s the company’s third hypercar project, following the Valkyrie (which was 001) and the Valkyrie AMR Pro (codenamed 002). Aston wants Project 003 to  superlative performance, with the company promising it will “possess class-leading dynamics on both road and track.”Project 003 is set to use a turbocharged gasoline engine and a hybrid powertrain, and it’ll have active aerodynamics and active suspension to further improve its handling performance. But don’t think that means this is a track-only special: Aston promises the car will be homologated for road use worldwide, with both left- and right-hand-drive variants. Also in the cards: “space for luggage” and other “practical concessions to road use.””It was always the intention for the Aston Martin Valkyrie to be a once-in-a lifetime project,” Aston Martin Lagonda president and chief executive Andy Palmer said in a statement. “However, it was also vital to us that Valkyrie would create a legacy: A direct descendent that would also set new standards within its own area of the hypercar market, creating a bloodline of highly specialised, limited production machines that can exist in parallel with Aston Martin’s series production models.”While Project 003 will definitely be a rare car, it’s still going to be built in much greater volumes than its predecessors. Aston Martin built only 150 Valkyrie road cars and 25 Valkyrie AMR Pro track cars. Stay tuned over the coming months as Aston gradually trickles out more information on its next hypercar. 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value Tags Review • 2019 Aston Martin Vantage: Beauty is a beast More From Roadshow Share your voice More about 2019 Aston Martin Vantage 25 Photos Aston Martin 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better 0 Preview • 2019 Aston Martin Vantage: A fresh take on a modern classic 2019 Aston Martin Vantage: V8 power and elegant style Exotic Cars Performance Cars Post a comment Aston Martinlast_img read more

Amy Winehouse Hologram Tour Canceled Over Challenges and Sensitivities

first_imgThe company didn’t elaborate on what those “challenges and sensitives” were. BASE Hologram did not respond to a Variety request for more information.The planned Winehouse hologram tour had the blessing of Mitch Winehouse, her father, when it was first announced last fall. Proceeds from the tour were to have gone toward the Amy Winehouse Foundation, dedicated to addiction awareness and prevention among young people.

State will empower civic officials to conduct drives inside locked premises Hakim

first_imgKolkata: State Municipal Affairs and Urban Development minister Firhad Hakim said on Thursday that the state will soon usher in a change in the Municipal Act, so that civic officials of all urban local bodies (ULBs) are empowered to undertake drives inside locked premises to prevent vector-borne diseases.The Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) has already amended its act in this regard and the minister wants to do the same for the other ULBs in the state. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeHakim held a meeting with representatives from selected ULBs of North and South 24-Parganas district, including Kolkata and Bidhannagar Municipal Corporations, on the basis of a report by the state Health department that had marked a number of wards in the municipalities of these two districts and some wards of Kolkata and Bidhannagar civic bodies, as sensitive in terms of outbreak of vector-borne diseases.”A number of councillors have expressed their inability in undertaking drives inside office premises, particularly of the Central government, jute mills and factories that are under lock and key. We are bringing in a change in the Municipal Act, so that civic workers who undertake vector-borne drives can forcefully enter these premises and clean the pockets that encourage the breeding of mosquitoes,” Hakim said. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedRepresentatives from the municipalities of Habra, Bhatpara and some others raised their concern over the lackadaisical approach of the Central government establishments, particularly the railways, in keeping their premises clean.”It is true that the number of dengue cases has been much less in comparison to the previous year. However, there is no place for complacency. We want to ensure that these sensitive wards, earmarked by the Health department, soon emerge as non-sensitive. If we carry on with our hard work for two to three years, I am hopeful that the number of dengue cases will come down to zero in the state,” the minister maintained. Some councillors at the meeting pointed out difficulties in conducting drives in certain bordering wards of the civic bodies due to jurisdictional boundaries. The minister immediately responded with a WhatsApp number and asked the councillors to send pictures of such places so that the matter can be taken up on priority basis.”There are wards under the KMC that share their boundary with the Rajpur-Sonarpur municipality. Joint drives may be carried out in these areas,” a senior official of the state Municipal Affairs department said.last_img read more
