Aston Martin and Red Bull unveil the AM-RB 001 hypercar

Roadshow
[SOUND] [MUSIC] It's been a long discussion backwards and forwards for [UNKNOWN] and I but it all somehow came to fruition over, if I remember correctly, sausages and mash. That's a pub in Wellborn. And that's where I thought [CROSSTALK] It looks like a Piper Cub. I [LAUGH] After market, ripple and Formula one, all coming together to produce this unbelievable car. I mean it's. I want it and I"m sure Ron Dennis is spitting his coffee out, as he speaks, right now. It's a very clean look.. We've come up with a small, compact like, car that Isn't, hasn't gone in a direction one or two, it's rivaled that so, and in some ways it's an evolution if you look at the Formula 1 car morphing into the Playstation X1 car, then into this. And in that way this is the target, so obviously trying to keep the car small. I think cars got to that cars attempt to get big and clumsy. So we try to keep this really small and compact. Hopefully the ultimate expression of performance. Obviously I wanted to get it for free. But in the end I've got to pay for the tires, so I think it's good enough. I'm pretty excited looking at it. I would love to participate in some development if I could. And i still can't quite believe it's gonna be on the streets. It looks like a pretty amazing racecar. [MUSIC] It's finally here, the tire between Aston Martin and Red Bull is a real thing. We just had a look at the AM-RB 001 super car, mega car, hyper car. Now as we see at the moment, it's pretty much a concept. The real cars won't start happening, or at least prototypes, until 2017. Obviously actual customer cars will follow shortly after that. But there are a few things we do know, for example it will have a one to one power to weight ratio. And Adrien Uey, one of the car's masterminds. Has said that it will weigh less than a thousand kilos which means potentially it could have 999 horse power which would be pretty too. Also it would have a natural aspirated mid mounted V12, so once it is light. It will be awesome because it's a nicely aspirated V12. [UNKNOWN] source it out? Well, pretty much most of it but he made sure all of the car's epic down force was kept underneath the car which meant Merrick [UNKNOWN] could make the top of the car pretty and what have you. And my God it is a beautiful beautiful thing. It looks like well It looks mad. It looks kind of like Vulcan plus, except Vulcan is massive compared to it. It will be developed here at Aston Martin under the watchful gaze of David King with Newly and Brightman and King and Andy Palmer and Chrissy Horner all having their own input. Into creating what is actually one of the most exciting cars ever built. Not just the most exciting Aston Martin ever built, that's the good bit, now here's the bad bit. There will be maximum 150 AMRB001s. That's not it's final name, we'll find that out later. And that includes all the upcoming prototypes and 25 track only versions. The track only versions will look pretty much identical to the road versions, but they'll be built to take slicks, and have different suspensions and be better on the track. It's said that it will be faster than any NT1 race car, which is Kind of awesome considering it's so, so tiny. It's a very, very small thing in the flesh. The other downside is the price, no fixed price but [UNKNOWN] Revealed that it would be between two and three million pounds. So, yeah, you probably can't afford one but it's a truly exciting thing and I truly can't wait. To see what the actual car will do a little further down the line. [MUSIC]
