Andrew is CNET's go-to guy for product coverage and lead photographer for Europe. When not testing the latest phones, he can normally be found with his camera in hand, behind his drums or eating his stash of home-cooked food. Sometimes all at once.

Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

However, it promises a power-to-weight ratio of one horsepower per kilogram, which is mega.

Then again, it should be, considering this is a joint production between Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing.

While we might not know much, we do know that this car looks the business.

It'll probably get around a track in relatively little time, too.
