Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing have teamed up to develop a futuristic looking hypercar. Codenamed AM-RB 001, what makes this creation all the more special is that it is headed for production with deliveries scheduled to begin in 2018.

Aston and RBR say that the AM-RB 001 is perfectly usable on the road and yet, is capable of outperforming all the other high-performance machines out on the track.

Built around a lightweight carbon fibre structure, the AM-RB 001 boasts truly radical aerodynamics for unmatched levels of downforce in a road-legal car. More technical details will be revealed in due course, but its heart is a new, mid-mounted naturally aspirated V12 engine.

For improved on-road usability and comfort levels, the AM-RB 001’s suspension system will feature technology and employ principles honed by Red Bull Racing’s Chief Technical Officer Adrian Newey over his 30-year career. Likewise, the transmission is a clean-sheet design conceived by Newey and developed by Red Bull’s Advanced Technologies.

Production for the AM-RB 001 will take place at Aston Martin’s Gaydon facility while first deliveries will begin in 2018. The firms have revealed that the production volume will be between 99 and 150 road cars including all remaining prototypes and the 25 track-only versions.
