Default Aston Racing’s new Le Mans car

Quote:
Aston Martin Racing has unveiled its new Le Mans challenger, the LMP1.
The racer gets a bespoke six-cylinder, direct injection, intercooled, turbocharged petrol engine mated to a six-speed semi automatic pneumatic shift ‘box, which is bolted to a carbon fibre chassis designed and manufactured by the company.
See all the official pics of the Aston Martin Racing LMP1
Features of the Aston Martin Racing LMP1 include an open cockpit and, in line with new regulations for 2011, a new blade-fin.
A total of six AMR-Ones will be built with its driver line-up including Brits, Darren Turner – driving car number 007 - and Andy Meyrick – 009.
According to team principal George Howard-Chappell: “We have chosen to run with a six cylinder turbocharged engine because we believe this offers the best potential within the petrol engine regulations. With the ACO’s commitment to effectively balance the performance of petrol and diesel Le Mans entrants – our hopes are high that we’ll see the closest racing yet in the premiere LMP1 category.”

The fin/blade thing will take some getting used to for me.

Neat, but LMP1 Le Mans racers all kind of look the same to me. Silhouette racers look more interesting, at least they superficially resemble the production car whose shape they're based on.

I think its a part of new safety regulations, to stop the car sooner in case it starts rolling.

I don't think anything will ever be as cool looking as the old Group C stuff. I like the closed cockpit GT cars.
