I do not think it will come down to size, but money. They would use one engine and one car for the next gen. of racing products. GT4, GT3, and GTE would all use the same V8 with different levels of tune.

It's a game everyone plays. Aston are very good at it. I wonder if the second aero kit is higher drag? They were super fast on the straight, 302kmh vs 298kmh for the nearest competitor. Probably the reason for the restrictor cut.

No way the ACO would let a car enter which would beat the LMP1s.

Any reason(s) why it couldn't enter as a LMP1? Have to admit that I don't know the ACO rules in detail, perhaps this is just a silly and uninformed question...

It's aero (namely the under floor) are far from ACO legal. And I don't think that AMR would invest in redesigning the car for a possible LMP1. Especially after the disaster of the AMR-One and the fact that the current LMP1 rules are less inviting for small factory teams than they were in the pre-2014 air restrictor BOP era.

I do not know exactly ACO Rules, but I have the sensation that all aerodynamic freedoms Newey was taken in the design are not all admitted, especially in the bottom of the car with these huge aerodynamic tunnels, although I'm not sure because the Nissan GTR LMP1 also had huge tunnels. Maybe Mike or anyone else can give a better answer of this.

But the Garage 56 have not rules, then the car could race here if ACO allow this.
This car could be a point of start of a extreme GT category in the same lever than LMP1, like the the battle of the end of 90 between GT1 and LMP1/WSC.

Future road car engine strategy for AMR is the V8s come from AMG - V12 will be in-house project.

Expect new race cars to follow on from new Vantage launch
