Hot Rod DA42 NG

A new client stopped by today and mentioned a DA42NG variant called the V1. According to the Diamond website the V1 has over 20 speed modifications and broke 200 knots TAS in December using the AE300 Engines currently in use.  A link to a YouTube video shows a single-engine climb of 400 fpm at blue line at 16,000 feet and testing at FL200 (hinting at a certification to FL250). Little more information seems to be available but we'll be eagerly awaiting further developments! A link to the Diamond press release:
