Aston Martin has announced plans to develop a brand new hyper car with the assistance of F1 team Red Bull.
The exciting news follows hot on the heels of the unveiling of the British automaker’s D11, as well as the statement that it will be opening a new factory in Cardiff.
The new hyper car is codenamed “Project AM-RB 001” according to a turbocharged press release, and will combine Red Bull’s sophisticated Formula 1 technology with Aston Martin’s classy sports car aesthetics.
Details are scarce in general, so there is little in the way of concrete facts to report at this stage. However, commentators are already thrilled that the brand are developing a follow-up to the successful, rip-roaring One-77, a high-performance car that rockets to 60mph from rest in just 3.5 seconds.
Tidbits Of Info About The Aston Martin HyperCar
The press release about the Aston Martin hyper car confirmed that it will be designed for the road as opposed to the racetrack.
This will set it apart from 2015’s Vulcan, although OSV anticipate that the final product will surely house some sort of F1-inspired capabilities.
An awesome mega-performance, luxury EV that Austin Martin have been whispering about for years, anyone?
Red Bull also divulged some general info about the project themselves last June when they hinted at plans to work on a powerful street car.
Moreover, RB’s chief technical officer has previous when it comes to virtual concept cars, and has in the past collaborated on the insanely rapid X1/X2010, which featured on Gran Turismo 5.
If the proposed hyper car is anything like the X1/X2010, we could have some car on our hands!
