Ta for that, def' sounded like 'rain-mode' engine/trans mapping, but between downforce & wet tyres,
they were sure pumping H2O off the track, & at a real good rate; then later they let rip, with big revs..
"Well, we knocked the bastard off!"

(& 1st to do a surface traverse across Antarctica,
in good Kiwi style - riding a Massey Ferguson farm
tractor - with a few extemporised mod's to hack the task).

Looks like it could be on par with the 2021-2022 BOP GT3 cars, which is pretty cool for a road car!

My brother has a one off road legal Audi r8 LMS GT3 car, and when you follow that in the rain, from about 50-60mph it is impossible to see anything, and it makes you car utterly filthy. You car will look like the inside of a tyre well :lol:

IIRC back in the day, AMG drew flak for adding a lip-spoiler to the tail of the aero-slippery W124 M-B,
which caused the same effect, something considered by M-B during development & rejected as a result..

(See at ~2:20 in per the vid below)

Shame it's junk. Typical "hypercar" design with a huge footprint squeezing in a tiny cabin. Old school rubbish.

The Murray designs are much more impressive with a decent mill coupled to a 3-seat cabin with luggage space. A properly designed car, unlike the Red Bull pseudo-hypercar.
Turbo says "Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools." oh, and "The Dutch fans are drunk. Maybe"

I agree, I think this Aston Martin shows what is very wrong with the ridiculous hyper car tier. Although the GMA T50 could cross over into the hyper car tier, it really presents itself as the very best super car. Something you look at and get the urge to want to just drive it and experience it.

The Valkyrie will just be a non-driving car that will be mostly seen in stupid click-bait youtube videos consumed by people who think a cars 0-60 is the only measure of a performance car.
