British luxury sports car maker Aston Martin and Formula One team Red Bull racing have announced 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 an ultimate Aston Martin hypercar.
Dubbed AM-RB 001, the new hypercar will represent the ultimate blend of cutting edge F1TM technology with Aston Martin’s signature sports car design.
“We are in the process of developing a hypercar that combines the latest in aerodynamics from F1TM and the stunning design language of an Aston Martin sports car,” said Reichman. “The opportunity to collaborate with Adrian (Newey) and Red Bull Advanced Technologies will be a fascinating experience for everyone involved. Unconstrained by F1TM regulations, we have a unique chance to create a car in its most efficient form that will represent the ultimate fusion of art and technology.”

Details about the project are practically zero so far and the teaser image released (below) doesn’t show anything, maybe we’ll see some features from the Aston Martin’s Vision GT (pictured above) and maybe we’ll see the ultimate successor of the singular Aston Marton One-77.
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.
