Red Bull F1 team and Aston Martin unveil AM-RB 001 hypercar

Bored with your Bugatti? Got a glaring gap between the Ferraris and Lamborghinis in your garage? Check out the new Aston Martin.

Aston Martin has just unveiled what could be the car for you — the AM-RB 001, a track-focused hypercar conceived in conjunction with the Red Bull Formula One team.

It may not have the catchiest name, but this revolutionary car is guaranteed to boast extreme styling and even more radical performance when it starts arriving in the multi-car garages of its well-heeled buyers in 2018.

It’s also likely to come with an equally radical price tag — when queried on a guide for the expected cost of an AM-RB 001, Aston Martin sources trotted out an age-old proverb.

“If you need to ask how much it is, you probably can’t afford it anyway.”

Turbocharged 900 bhp

At the heart of the AM-RB 001 will be a mammoth V12 engine that eschews turbocharging but still manages to produce as much as 900 brake horse power (bhp) — that’s more than modern Formula One cars.

Hybrid technology is also likely to feature and Aston Martin is making some bold claims for the vehicle.
“This is a no-excuses halo model,” says the company’s boss Andy Palmer, who has overseen a remarkable transformation in Aston’s prospects over the past 18 months. “It will be the most luxurious car in its class, but also the quickest and the fastest.”
That’s a bold statement indeed, though in truth Aston will probably split production into two versions — a hardcore, stripped-out track car which, it is claimed, can lap circuits as quickly as an F1 racer, and a slightly softer version that’s tuned for road use.
After all, what’s the point of 001 if you can’t take the series up to at least 007?
