a couple of months Ago we met the AM-RB 001, the super sports car launched by Aston Martin and Red Bull together. Promising a Formula 1 for the street and behind the project was an expert in the world, as it is Adrian Newey. The case is that this vehicle has raised a lot of excitement and will be difficult to purchase one of them. Apparently there are already more than 450 applications to be done with the model.
The problem is that the AM-RB-001 will have a spin very limited. At its launch it was said that there are produced more than 150 units, so that today there are triple the amount of requests of copies. According to the marketing director of Aston Martin, Simon Sproule, buyers of this new model are the same that you already got a Porsche 918 Spyder, a Ferrari LaFerrari or a McLaren P1 in their garages when they came out.
The truth is that surprising that there is such a quantity of stakeholders, taking into account that still don’t know all the details AM-RB 001. For example, it has not been given figures on how much it will cost, but sure that you will reach a price of several million euros. What we do know with certainty is that it will use the engine V12 atmospheric of the brand, and which will be placed in a central position. It is not ruled out that mount another electric motor as a support.
With this hybrid system would be figures of power close to the 1000 HP. The other objective is to reduce their weight the most of being below the 1000 kg thanks to a monocoque carbon and achieving a weight-to-power excellent. Still have to wait to see how you split the 150 units of the AM-RB 001, but the lucky ones who get to take home a vehicle capable of reach the times of a Formula 1 in circuit.
