Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing unveil the AM-RB 001 hypercar
Designed by Red Bull Racing’s Chief Technical Officer Adrian Newey, Aston Martin’s Marek Reichman, chief creative officer and David King, VP and Chief Special Operations Officer.
The team and the car manufacturer announced that the mid-engined beast will be powered by a naturally aspirated V12 engine and that the car’s F1-inspired carbon fibre construction will give it a power to weight ratio of 1:1, 1 bhp per kilo of weight! The AM-RB 001 is to feature performance levels in line with that of today’s LMP1 Le Mans sports prototypes!
Production of the car will be between 99 and 150 road cars and a further 25 track-only versions in the works. First deliveries will commence in 2018.
