This is the result of a technical partnership between Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing.
The three men in charge of this project are: Adrian Newey, Red Bull Racing’s Chief Technical Officer, Marek Reichman, Aston Martin EVP Chief Creative Officer and David King, VP, Chief Special Operations Officer.
It will be powered by a naturally aspirated V12 engine.
Made from carbon fibre and lightweight construction with a 1:1 power to weight ratio.
Adrian Newey, Red Bull Racing’s Chief Technical Officer, says of the AM-RB 001 project: “I’ve long harboured the desire to design a road car. The formation of Red Bull Advanced Technologies brought me a step closer to realising that ambition, but I believed we should work with an automotive manufacturer. Aston Martin was at the top of my list. The synergy between Red Bull Racing and Aston Martin is clear. I knew Red Bull Racing had the ability to handle the pure performance aspects, but Aston Martin’s experience of making beautiful, fast and comfortable GT cars is of great benefit to the project. I’ve always been adamant that the AM-RB 001 should be a true road car that’s also capable of extreme performance on track, and this means it really has to be a car of two characters. That’s the secret we’re trying to put into this car – the technology that allows it to be docile and comfortable, but with immense outright capabilities.”
There will be around 99 to 150 cars built with 25 track only versions.
First deliveries to customers in 2018.
