Shortly after the AM-RB 001 was unveiled in concept guise the Brits are talking about what effect their revolutionary hypercar will have on the rest of their range.
During an exclusive interview with Autocar, Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer disclosed that elements of the AM-RB 001 will trickle down to lesser models when deliveries of the F1-beating road car commence in 2018.
“It would be a shame if you didn’t incorporate that into cars of the future, whether it be on the design side or special versions.”, he said.
Given the fact that technical specifications of the car remain unknown, it’s impossible to say what technologies could be featured in future Aston products. It could be a long shot, but an evolution of the advanced carbon fiber might used across the firm’s range. Plus, if the 001 does indeed include hybrid tech, that too may be implemented in other offerings.
On a final note, Palmer revealed that the 001 may not be a one-off, as it be followed by a 002, 003 and even a 007 down the road. That last one would be a perfect match for the world’s most famous secret agent that, after all, does have a penchant for Astons.
