Aston Martin and Formula One team Red Bull Racing announced a ground-breaking partnership to produce a hypercar that will represent the blend of cutting edge F1 technology with Aston Martin’s signature sports car design.
The Aston Martin hypercar, codenamed Project AM-RB 001, will combine the latest in aerodynamics from F1 and the stunning design language of an Aston Martin sports car.
It will excite and stir the imaginations of the car designers of the future and a global audience of sports car enthusiasts.
Combining the strongest elements of Red Bull Racing, Red Bull Advanced Technologies and Aston Martin, this new Innovation Partnership unites the world’s best aerodynamicists, composite experts and manufacturing masters.
All the parties offer different elite capabilities and the combination of all of those skills, ensuring that Project ‘AM-RB 001’ promises to be an exciting prospect for customers and enthusiasts around the world.
The Aston Martin brand was borne out of the racing exploits of Lionel Martin – one of the founding partners of the British marque over 103 years ago – and the company made itsinternational motor racing debut at the 1922 French Grand Prix.
While motorsport has always remained integral to the brand’s DNA, the most famous moment in Aston Martin’s significant motorsport history is the 1959 outright win at the Le Mans 24 Hours for Roy Salvadori and Carroll Shelby in the Aston Martin DBR1.
The modern Aston Martin Racing team, formed in 2005 has taken three class wins at Le Mans and will return to Circuit de la Sarthe again this June.
