Andrew Frankel – The Original Hypercar

Sitting at my desk, having driven back from the launch of the Aston Martin AM-RB 001 somewhat agog at what I had just seen, I started playing with some of the numbers revealed that day, and some I knew already from a previous time. I am no mathematician but it seems to me that, very broadly speaking, the step forward in power to weight ratio the new Aston represents over existing production supercars is approximately the same as the step made by the McLaren F1 over its competitor set back in the mid 1990s.
