All cars made by Aston are known for their exquisite design and their sporty ride. Their soulful engine noise became one of the most endeared sounds for motorists. The presence of an Aston Martin on any street in the world turns heads. Right now the company has associated with Red Bull to create the next 3 million dollars hypercar of the world.
The legend of this car is closely linked to one of the greatest cinematographic franchises in the world. James Bond`s legacy inevitably includes the Aston Martin badge stuck on its forehead. This film established Aston Martin as the hallmark of luxury, understated power, good taste and refined masculinity.
With such a glorious past, Aston Martin intends to develop an equally exciting future.
Right now, the company partnered with Red Bull to produce the next 3 million dollars hypercar of the world called AM-RB 001.
Through this collaboration, both companies intend to develop the fastest car in the world by a considerable margin. Some speculate that its acceleration from 0 to 60 (62 if you want to be pedantic) miles per hour will change the prefix.
After a few pictures of this car`s concept version had been published, fan and critics debated the design intensely, complaining that most likely the car will borrow only a few lines from the concept. However, both manufacturers assured that final result would look very similar to the initial design.
The chief creative officer from Aston Martin, Marek Reichman, announced that only around 100 copies of this car would be made and most likely the clients will be attentively selected.
Also, this 3 million dollars hypercar will come in two versions. While the first one will be designed to be a fully operational streetcar, the second will be destined entirely to the track. No exact numbers of units per each version were offered so far.
The collaboration started a year and a half ago when Adrian Newey, a well-known designer of Formula 1 cars, approached Aston Martin and co-opted them in the project.
So far, their collaboration managed to produce a viable design project, but details related to several technical aspects, such as the engine, gearbox or transmission have not been established yet. Both manufacturers hope to have the car ready for sales by the end of 2017.
