We have some fresh photos from the reveal of Aston Martin’s new hypercar, the AM-RB 001. Don’t worry as that isn’t the car’s name. It’s a placeholder until Aston Martin finally settles on one. The car’s performance is said to be comparable to an LMP1 like the Porsche 919 Hybrid that just won the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but it will also be civil enough to drive down to the shops every day.
Another impressive car unveiled yesterday was Ferrari’s [NYSE:RACE] new LaFerrari convertible. The automaker is keeping the car’s name a secret until the reveal at the 2016 Paris Auto Show this September. The name will likely reference Ferrari’s 70th anniversary next year. We hope it isn’t something as silly as LaFerrari.
The Chevrolet Corvette driven by Briggs Cunningham in the 1960 24 Hours of Le Mans, which was found in 2012 after being hidden away for decades, has finally been restored. It no longer has to remain in secrecy as the ownership dispute surrounding it has been settled.
You'll find all of these stories and more in today's car news, right here at Motor Authority.
