Aston Martin has unveiled the new AMR-One endurance racer.

Dressed in Gulf Oil livery, the LMP1 car rides on a bespoke carbon fiber chassis and is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter six-cylinder engine which develops approximately 540 bhp (403 kW / 548 PS). It sends power to the rear wheels through a transversely-mounted semi-automatic Xtrac racing transmission.

Aston Martin will build a total of six cars and the factory will race one in the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup and two in "selected events." The factory team will consist of Fernandez (MX), Andy Meyrick (GB) and Harold Primat (CH) in the 009 car as well as Darren Turner (GB), Stefan Mücke (D), and an another unannounced driver in the 007 car.

According to Aston Martin CEO Dr. Ulrich Bez, "Aston Martin's heritage is deeply rooted in endurance sports car racing, so in 2011, we take the next step demonstrating that a small team using advanced design and engineering intelligence will be agile and competitive."
