Red Bull Racing will continue to promote the Aston Martin brand in 2017 with the two parties extending their current partnership.

At its inception, the association between the F1 team and the luxury car manufacturer initiated the design of an Aston Martin hypercar, labeled the AM-RB 001, which Adrian Newey helped create.

The project was shrouded in a lot of secrecy but recently, the brand's chief designer Marek Reichman lift the veil on some important details.

The car will allegedly claim a top speed of about 400 km/h and the power to produce 4.5Gs of cornering ability!

According to Reichman, the AM-RB 001’s naturally aspirated V12 engine with 1,000 horsepower  will displace between 6.0- and 7.0-liters, and feature an F1 inspired energy kinetic system providing an 80 bhp boost as well as short bursts of electric mobility.

The production run will be limited to 150 cars, all of which have already been sold! Customers are scheduled to receive their AM-RB 001 in 2019, while Aston Martin will also build 25 track-only editions of the hypercar.

Red Bull boss Christian Horner said "the extraordinary success of the AM RB 001 is a testament to the expert collaborative spirit in which it was forged."
