I like it. Not sure if it's going to look like this in hypercar trim, I think it'll be better.

that livery is because of an AMR / redbull promotional event during f1 silverstone week-end.

And Red Bull did MOST of the work on the car. It's a Red Bull pet project to make such a car and keep Newey engaged and entertained.

So Aston Martin lost almost $100m in 2Q19 and their share price is down 75% since their IPO in April. Iím not liking the chances of an expanded AMR racing program and their ability to move forward as an independent company.

If it's based on the road Valkyrie or the pro, there's a chance that they can make a little bit of money in sales if there's teams wanting to run one or two.

What if it is based on the massive economic problems the auto industry & the EU/UK currently face along with the fact that Andy Palmer thought it was a good idea to go public in the middle of Brexit?

My point is theres a car already made in the Valkyrie. If the race car is based on it with some upgrades, the investment might not be on the chopping block because it doesn't lose money (like the company has). So if it's somehow profitable, it has a lower chance of being cancelled.

The Valkyrie is a project of Red Bull too, designed by Adrian Newey and presented on track for first time with the blue and red of Red Bull, then it could be Red Bull who supports the WEC project.

Aston Martin are a major sponsor of Red Bull F1. Thus, I donít know how much sense it would make for RB to fund the project after losing a major sponsor that has their name on the car.

Itís like:

ďHey we need to cut the sponsorship of your racing team by $50m because our CEO is an idiot and caused our company to lose 75% of its value while loading it up with debt. But....will you find ours?

Thanks,
AMRĒ

Unless the project is sold off in liquidation or totally frozen in bankruptcy

I think your scenario is unlikely. Not saying it cant happen but we'll have to see if they become profitable. With their (stupid imo) SUV they might save the company if it's somewhat affordable.

The problem is they donít currently have the necessary capital to get to get the DBX to production and all of their options to raise it are pretty terrible (and I think the DBX is way overpriced in a very crowded marketplace - itís not a very good looking car to begin with). Not to mention, the EU & UK are headed into some uncertain economic times, and that is going to hit the demand for high end cars significantly. The other strike against AM is their sales numbers are going to fall significantly until the firm presents some reasonable path forward.

At this point, someone (probably a Chinese firm) is going to have to buy out the company for the branding because their business model is past the point of repair.

Not good looking? Sounds perfect for the market that will be footballers who want a posh X6. Take their money.
