It seems Aston Martin has announced their interest in entering the Hypercar world. Teaming up with Red Bull they have come flying out of the gate with this: the AM-RB 001 Prototype.
It’s so new (announced in July of 2016) it doesn’t even have a real name. AM-RB 001 is only its code name, but it has some promising facts and figures. On top it will wear an ultra-aerodynamic, ultra-light weight all Carbon Fibre body, pushed along by a naturally aspirated V12 in the middle – with power figures of 1 horse power per 1 kilogram of curb weight (where have we heard that one before?).
The AM-RB 001 will be making its North American debut at the Canadian International Autoshow taking place February 17th to 26th. It will have a limited production run of only 150 examples, including prototypes and specialized “track only” editions. Deliveries will begin in 2019.
