After a few months of speculating, Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing presented their brand new supercar. Has been baptized as AM-RB 001 and it is a vehicle quite special that takes technology directly from Formula 1 and whose creator has been Adrian Newey. The technical director of the team Red Bull has worked with some managers of the firm from Gaydon to create a spectacular design.
The AM-RB-001 is a kind of Formula 1 for the road and that is reflected in their appearance. Seen a few of the ways very radical, and that will be good to get a aerodynamics outstanding. Highlight the front air intake next to a prominent splitter, a side open for the passage of the air, and a height really low. You will have a floor with a flat bottom that ends in a huge diffuser and a exhaust in the purest style of Formula 1.
The mechanics you choose will be a V12 maximum power in a central position. Although this is not yet uncovered its power, the goal is to achieve a ratio of a kilo for every horse. In this way it is possible to close to 1,000 HP and weighing just a ton, thanks to its carbon-fibre monocoque. We are also working on a new transmission to get the most possible performance of the V12. Its performance is an unknown quantity, although could get closer to the racing car LMP1.
Of time the AM-RB 001 made by Aston Martin and Red Bull is a prototype. However, in 2018 is expected to start its production and in 2019 will arrive the first units. Is meant to produce a very limited number of units, between 99 and 150 copies to road. There will also be a series of 25 units that will be only for circuit and will have a approach to even more sports.
