With the cooperation of Formula 1 racing team, Red Bull, the famous Bond series carmaker, Aston Martin has designed a ground-breaking hypercar and codenamed it AM-RB 001. Approximately, 99 to 150 units including all the remaining mules will be designed in future as road cars, while 25 machines will be built for the race track. Once the deliveries start in 2018, it will surely win millions of hearts and gather a tons of footfalls to the showroom, at least for getting a selfie.
The dream of this car wouldn’t have accomplished without the combined efforts of three men- Adrian Newey (Red Bull Racing’s Chief Technical Officer), Marek Reichman (Chief Creative Officer and studio head at Aston Martin) and David King (VP and Chief Special Operations Officer).
To execute the world's best design, Reichman and Newey will closely work on each and every angle and will leave nothing up to chance, as well as materialize the best quality of stuff such as lightweight carbon fibre structure, innovative suspension system, etc.
The AM-RB 001 is a fully customised machine from tyres to everything, with no compromises made in any aspect. Though, we are unknown to the full specification yet, but it will be unveiled in due course. Once launched, the powerful hypercar will murder all its rivals by laying down the unbeatable power on the roads that will come out through a new, high-revving, naturally aspirated, mid-mounted, 12 cylinder V-line in engine having potentials to achieve a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio; 1 bhp per kilo of weight.
Speaking about the Project AM-RB 001, Adrian Newey, Red Bull Racing’s Chief Technical Officer, stated, “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”.
“Working so closely alongside Adrian and an organisation like Red Bull Racing is a fabulous experience. By definition the objectives we’ve set for the car ensures there has never been an Aston Martin - or any car, actually - quite like the AM-RB 001. The shared challenge has been finding that magical tipping point where we achieve the most efficient engineering solutions and the most beautiful styling solutions without any compromises. My personal challenge has been expressing the AM-RB 001’s extraordinary performance and the unique way in which it delivers that performance. Its style reflects its revolutionary nature, while possessing the form and beauty that makes it unmistakably an Aston Martin,” commented by Marek Reichman, Aston Martin’s Chief Creative Officer.
