The AM-RB 001 (less commonly called through another codename as Nebula), is an upcoming production supercar collaboratively built by Aston Martin, Red Bull Racing and several other manufacturers.

Contents

The hypercar is a product of collaboration between Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing to create a car entirely usable and enjoyable as a road car. The car's makers claim the title of fastest street-legal car in the world for it. Its design was helped by Adrian Newey, Red Bull Racing's Chief Technical Officer and the world's most successful F1 designer.

Nomenclature

The name "AM-RB 001" was decided since Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing had collaborated all throughout the project. AM stands for Aston Martin, and RB stands for Red Bull. 001 may be a possible reference to it being the first production car the two have collaborated on.

Specifications

In February 2017, Aston Martin revealed most of the vehicle specs.

Several manufacturers (other than Aston Martin and Red Bull) have taken part in the AM-RB 001's construction, these being Cosworth, Ricardo, Rimac Automobili, Multimatic, Alcon, Bosch, Surface Transforms, and Wipac.

The car will supply a 6.5L naturally-aspirated V12 tailored by Cosworth, which is specifically made to make a 1:1 ratio. Marek Reichman, Aston Martin's automotive designer, has also announced the car will make about 1,000 horsepower. A Rimac-built hybrid battery system, which performs as a KERS system, will be installed along with the engine. The power will be delivered by a 7-speed paddle-shift transmission constructed by Ricardo.

Bosch will supply the AM-RB 001's ECU, traction control system, and ESP, and brakes and calipers are provided by Alcon and Surface Transforms. The lights are constructed by Wipac. Everything is made of carbon fiber and there is not a single steel component in its entire structure. The car will be installed with a MonoCell from manufacturer Multimatic.

Production

Between 99 and 150 road cars (including remaining prototypes) and 25 race cars were planned, with deliveries set to begin in 2018.

Currently there is one confirmed pre-ordered car worldwide available to purchase on JamesEdition.
