New Details Emerge On Aston Martin And Red Bull’s Car, But Are They True?

As if there weren’t enough rumors about Aston Martin and Red Bull’s upcoming hypercar already, an insider who attended an owner’s track day at Road Atlanta for the new Vulcan, decided to spice things up even more.

A company executive allegedly showed off a design book of images and details about the Newey-designed “Project AM-RB 001”, Jalopnik reports.

According to the source, the car, codenamed “Nebula” will be powered by a naturally-aspirated, 7.0-litre V12 that will rev to almost 10,000 rpm and produce around 1,000 horsepower. An outstanding achievement – if it turns out to be true – considering that the last Aston Martin to come remotely close was the 7.3-litre, 750hp One-77.

The power-to-weight ratio will be mind boggling as well, as the source continued saying that the hypercar will weigh around 2,300 pounds (1043 kg), and it’ll have a body designed with “a massive amount of negative space”, and without any wings or spoilers.

All of the car’s traits are obviously inspired by Newey’s Formula 1 expertise, as its underside will sport “venturi channels” flowing to an “upside-down jigsaw wing, sticking the car to the ground with the air flowing in through the iconic Aston Martin mouth.

The interior has been described as surprisingly large, with tandem seating. The exterior will allegedly be typical Aston Martin, with side-exit exhausts, albeit the tipster compared the car with the Caparo T1.

Moreover, the owners at Road Atlanta were being encouraged to buy the Vulcan and other Aston Martin models in order to secure themselves one of the 99 AM-RB 001s.

All this sounds very interesting (except the shopping spree to secure the exclusive model), but we’ll have to wait until Aston Martin decides to unveil the product, with some reports claiming it will happen this summer.

    This all sounds awesome but I can’t really believe the part about the engine. It sounds like a enthousiasts wet dream and not like something companies would build nowadays. Some small boring engine with lots of boost might be more likely to happen. In the end performance and exclusivity count for those kind of buyers, they don’t need to go through the trouble of building a 7.0l N/A V12 masterpiece to sell them.

      Indeed, the design and the prestige will sell it, no need for some engine from the dark side. It could even be an EV.

      You need to catch up with the project and its aim. You also need to familiarise yourself with Adrian Newey and what motivates him 😉
