In a world where supercars are selling for millions of euro, Aston martin decided to build another rare car, as the previous One-77. A hypercar as powerful as the Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1 or Porsche 918 Spyder.
To be able to compete with such names and exclusivity, Aston Martin and Formula One team Red Bull Racing are announcing a partnership which sees Red Bull Racing’s Chief Technical Officer, Adrian Newey and Aston Martin’s Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman collaborate to produce a ground-breaking Aston Martin hypercar.
Codenamed Project ‘AM-RB 001’, the new hypercar will represent the cutting edge F1 technology with Aston Martin’s sports car design.
This new Innovation Partnership unites the world’s best aerodynamicists, composite experts and manufacturing masters. All the parties offer different elite capabilities.
As the designer of cars such as the Aston Martin DB11 – which was revealed earlier this month at the Geneva International Motor Show – the Aston Martin Vulcan and the One-77, Marek Reichman is the best choice for creating the lines of the car.
Having an illustrious Formula One career spanning nearly 30 years, and as the designer of ten World Championship winning Formula One cars, the partnership also represents a new challenge for Red Bull Racing’s Adrian Newey.
To celebrate the partnership between Aston Martin, Red Bull Racing and Red Bull Advanced Technologies, the RB12s will carry the iconic Aston Martin wings logo throughout the 2016 season, making their debut at this weekend’s Australian Grand Prix at Albert Park in Melbourne.
