Martin AM-RB 001
The AM-RB 001 is an exotic hypercar developed through a collaboration
between Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing. Only a limited number are
to be constructed (somewhere between 99 and 150) and each will be
hand built at Aston Martin's Gaydon facility, in the same unit where
the One-77 supercar was fabricated.
Despite it's racing origins, the AM-RB 001 is a road car. The AM-RB
001 was principally designed and engineered by three men. Adrian Newey,
Red Bull Racing's Chief Technical Officer and the world's most successful
F1 car designer, Marek Reichman, Aston Martin EVP and Chief Creative
Officer and David King, VP and Chief Special Operations Officer.
The car is based around a carbon fiber monocoque structure and features
immense levels of downforce for a road-going vehicle. Much of the
downforce is created by underfloor air management, leaving the bodywork
suprisingly flowing and devoid of large spoilers.
To cope with the extreme aerodynamic loadings at high speeds, but
still offer levels of comfort comparable to other supercars, the AM-RB
001's suspension system will feature innovative technology developed
by Newey. A groundbreaking transmission system, also designed by Newey,
and developed by Red Bull Advanced Technologies will also feature
in the car.
Powering the Aston Martin AM-RB 001 is a mid-mounted, naturally aspirated
V12 engine. The car is said to feature a 1:1 power to weight ratio,
although neither figures have currently been published.
