Designed by British coachbuilder Radford and racing outfit Prodrive, the Pikes Peak Edition is a highly specialized racing machine. It boasts a carbon fiber monocoque chassis and body, which keeps the car incredibly lightweight and provides impressive strength and rigidity.

Under the hood, the Pikes Peak Edition packs a potent powertrain consisting of an electric motor and a Wankel rotary engine. The combination of these two power sources is expected to produce a staggering 670 horsepower, giving the car an impressive power-to-weight ratio.

But it's not just the powertrain that makes the Pikes Peak Edition special. The car also features cutting-edge aerodynamics, including a large rear wing and a diffuser, which generate massive amounts of downforce to keep the car planted to the ground. The car's suspension has also been specially designed to cope with the bumps and undulations of the Pikes Peak course, providing maximum grip and stability.

With the Radford Pikes Peak Edition and Tanner Foust at the helm, there's no doubt that this year's race will be one to watch.

Aston Martin aims for 20th class victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans as new Vantage GT3 makes debut

Aston Martin’s new Vantage GT3 is all set to make its debut in the world’s most famous endurance race, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, this weekend (15-16 June), as the ultra-luxury British sportscar manufacturer targets an incredible 20th class victory at the event.

Two examples of the Aston Martin Vantage GT3, which shares the mechanical architecture of the new Vantage road car unveiled earlier this year at Silverstone, and which is built around Aston Martin’s proven bonded aluminium chassis and powered by its fearsome twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 engine, will contest the ‘twice around the clock’ race in central France. Both will compete in the new-for-2024 LMGT3 category as Aston Martin continues to lay the groundwork for its return to the top class with the Valkyrie AMR-LMH in 2025.
