Generated power is transferred to tarmac through 8-speed, F1-inspired dual-clutch transmission and a limited-slip differential.

Aston Martin is planning to hit 0-62mph in 2.5 seconds and reaching top speed of more than 220mph. Few features from Aston Martin Valkyrie are derived such as e-AWD, active suspension, platform control, active ride height, and damping systems. All these features will make AM-RB 003 an unmatchable sports hypercar in the market.
