Aston Martin Teams Up with Red Bull Racing to Create an Amazing Supercar

Red Bull Racing is one of the most successful teams in Formula 1. Now they have teamed up with Aston Martin to create a hypercar that has the capability of being raced on a track and still be able to be driven on the road. Andrew Newey, Red Bull Racing’s Chief Technical Officer and the world’s most successful F1 designer is responsible for the transmission and suspension for the supercar. While not all of the specs are currently known, the street-legal racer will feature a naturally aspirated V-12 engine and have a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio. This power to weight ratio was achieved by using a complete carbon fiber body that is very durable and extremely lightweight.

“I’ve long harboured the desire to design a road car. The formation of Red Bull Advanced Technologies brought me a step closer to realizing 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”. – Adrian Newey

The current name of the vehicle is a combination of initials for each participating partner, AM-RB 001 (Aston Martin – Red Bull 001). This is obviously a developmental name that the project is currently working under as the Aston Martin legal department secures the rights to a properly fitting name that will eventually belong to the supercar. Production numbers are expected to be limited with only 99 – 150 examples being made to include prototypes and 25 track-only examples. Expect the final price to be between $2.5 -4 million. The ultra-limited track editions will obviously fetch a higher price than the road versions of the hypercar. The first examples are expected to be delivered sometime in 2018.

The backdrop for this tire-shredding expedition is an old Vancouver runway affectionately referred to by the local drifting community as the “Skid Pad.” Before taking to the “Skid Pad”, Tuerck and his friends went for a stroll through the Vancouver city streets with two examples from the Prancing Horse and a Lamborghini Murcielago SV.
