After releasing the Formula 3000, now it's the time for the true and fast thing: Formula one, no more, no less
Astor Fone is the Astor's Formula 1 car with which Team Astor nearly got into F1 in 1996. Proper funding, while being a cliche,
was Team Astor's problem too so the story of Astor in Formula one was pretty short. Nevertheless, the car was pretty was and
with very advanced aerodynamics, only Adrian Newey's designs really matched and probably surpassed. This combined with a mysterious,
yet pretty good 3.0 liter V12 engine, the car would have been competitive. Or not. No one can know.
Thus, no wonder why Chris Astor was frustrated by the severe funding problem.
The car is mostly inspired by the ever-so-neat-looking Williams FW17 and FW18, from '95 and '96 respectively.
(Personally, the mid-90's F1 cars were close being the greatest-looking in the history of F1, probably only matched by
the mid-60's sleek machines )
Then, once again, some performance figures clocked in Generally:
Code: Select all
Formula One: Top speed: 284 km/h (at MiltonDuPont's Daytona) 0-100 km/h: 0,57 sec (at my 'Speed test' track) 0-200 km/h: 1,75 sec (at my 'Speed test' track)
