Red Bull Racing gives you (Aston Martin) wings


The team’s RB12 car is set to wear Aston Martin badges in 2016 ahead of road car collaboration.


Red Bull Racing has announced that it is joining forces with Aston Martin to develop a road-going ‘hypercar’.


The announcement was made ahead of the Australian Grand Prix, and will see the two organisations collaborate for the first time on a road car with the codename Project AM-RB 001. Red Bull Racing’s Chief Technical Director Adrian Newey is set to spearhead the project, alongside Aston Martin design chief Marek Reichman.


“This is a very exciting project for everyone at Red Bull Racing,” said Team Principal Christian Horner. “Red Bull Advanced Technologies, led by Adrian, will be using Formula One DNA to produce the ultimate of all road cars. It’s an incredible project and also realises a dream and vision long held by Adrian to design a road car.”



Adding to Horner’s comments, Adrian Newey said: “From the age of six, I have had two goals in life – to be involved in the design of racing cars, and to be involved in the design of a supercar. Whilst the former ambition went on to form my career to date, the latter has always bubbled away, resulting in countless sketches and doodles over the years.


“The opportunity to now develop and realise those ideas whilst working with Marek and his colleagues from Aston Martin is tremendously exciting. It allows us to translate the technology we have developed in F1 into a new arena.”

‘Ground-breaking hypercar’ will feature F1 technology and ‘beautiful’ styling, with F1-baiting lap times

 

Aston Martin is set to bring F1 technology to the road with the announcement it will develop a ‘ground-breaking hypercar’ with Red Bull Racing and its Chief Technical Officer, Adrian Newey.

Codenamed ‘AM-RB 001’, the hypercar will mix familiar Aston Martin design cues with Formula 1 technology, under an ‘Innovation Partnership’ designed to bring together the world’s leading aerodynamicists, composite experts and manufacturing masters.

Details of the project are still scarce at this stage, and our sole indication as to the car’s form comes in the shape of a simple sketch – but the signs point to a dramatic shape influenced heavily by Newey’s knowledge of F1 aerodynamics.

For Newey, the project will turn ‘countless sketches and doodles’ into a lifelong dream. ‘From the age of six I have had two goals in life – to be involved in the design of racing cars, and to be involved in the design of a supercar’ he said, calling the prospect of working with Aston Martin design chief Marek Reichman ‘tremendously exciting’.

Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer is equally enthusiastic, saying the companies will ‘create a car that will excite and stir the imaginations of the car designers of the future and a global audience of sports car enthusiasts’.

Speaking to evo’s sister title Auto Express, Palmer also hinted at the direction of the hypercar – which will have a track focus rather than chasing the Bugatti Chiron’s 261mph top speed.

That includes mind-blowing performance that will let it lap Silverstone ‘as quick as or quicker than an F1 or LMP1 car’ despite it being capable of driving on the road.

Such capabilities suggest a car far more extreme in aerodynamics and chassis design than existing hypercars – a full suite of active elements, ground effect technology and active suspension is sure to feature, though Palmer also says the car will be ‘beautiful’.

The car’s engine and transmission haven’t been confirmed, but again the focus on F1 technology suggests both turbocharging and some form of kinetic energy recovery will feature. From Aston Martin’s current lineup of powerplants, the most likely donor is the 5.2-litre V12 from the newly-launched DB11.

The hypercar is set to be launched in 2018, but with F1-rivaling performance and some of the world’s highest automotive technology, it’s unlikely to come cheap.

Chissà cosa si inventerà Newey  :pop:

Non seguendo la F1 non sono al corrente degli effettivi meriti di Newey, anche se ne parlano come un genio.

Certo è che leggere "Aston Martin" ed "Hypercar" nella stessa frase fa sempre piacere.

La teoria è quando si conosce il funzionamento di qualcosa ma quel qualcosa non funziona.

La pratica è quando tutto funziona ma non si sa come.

Spesso si finisce con il coniugare la teoria con la pratica: non funziona niente e non si sa il perché.

Di tutta questa operazione, che sulla carta si presenta con ambizioni quasi stellari, mi vengono in mente due considerazioni fondamentali:

 

1) Dirò una banalità, ma per fare una hypercar ci vuole gente che sappia fare una hypercar!

 

Certo, prima bisognerebbe capire cosa si intende per hypercar.

Per come la vedo io trattasi di auto stradale, nel senso di usabile decentemente su strada pubblica, con tecnologia e prestazioni molto vicine alle macchine da competizione.

 

Aston Martin non mi sembra avere una grande esperienza in questo ambito, l'unico modello considerabile è la One-77, ma per me non è mai stata all'altezza dei migliori del settore. Direi più una showcar visto anche il numero di esemplari.

Ok, il telaio in fibra di carbonio e 750CV sembrano essere un bel biglietto da visita, ma se poi andiamo a guardare bene parliamo di un bestione da 1630Kg che fa lo 0-100 in 3,7 con un motore V12 da 7.3 litri. 

Per mettere le cose in prospettiva, la Enzo sette anni prima pesava 1255Kg, aveva 660CV e faceva 3,6s da 0-100.

 

Con questo cosa voglio dire? Che il curriculum di Aston in tema di hypercar è decisamente scarso numericamente parlando (ne han fatta solo una...) e di conseguenza il know how tecnico per questo tipo di vetture è assolutamente limitato.

 

Dall'altra parte abbiamo una Red Bull che macchine stradali non ne ha mai fatte, è "solo" un team di F1.

Malignamente potrei dire che non è neanche quello, è praticamente un'operazione di marketing o 'na lattina su ruote per dirla terra terra.

Oggi sono in F1 perché (immagino) convenga al loro business, domani chissà.

Sulla competenza tecnica non si discute però, sono al top! E hanno quel geniaccio di Newey che fa la differenza.

 

Chi porta cosa?

Pensiamo solo che Aston a breve riceverà motori Mercedes-AMG, quindi su quel lato potrà mettere poco di suo nell'economia del progetto.

Va a finire che sarà proprio Aston quella che beneficerà maggiormente di quest'unione, se pensiamo al bagaglio tecnico e alle risorse a disposizione della Red Bull (già solo la galleria del vento ad esempio).

E qui mi collego al secondo pensiero...

 

2) Ma che c'entra una blasonata e storica casa britannica, che ha prodotto tra le più belle GT della storia, con un marchio di bevande energetiche che fa dell'estremo uno dei suoi cavalli di battaglia?

Per non parlare della clientela di riferimento, non potrebbe essere più diversa!

 

Boh, a me sembrano come l'acqua e l'olio. 

 

Fine del pippone :-D

Credo che prenderanno pari pari spunto dalla Vision GT per il videogioco Gran Turismo 6: Ed ho anche l'impressione che questo sia un passo per Red Bull per cercare una power unit più potente della Renault; con un riavvicinamento alla F1 da parte di Aston Martin che rimarchierebbe Power Unit/Motori di derivazione Mercedes-Amg.

Altra cosa interessante è che questa vettura può diventare cio che è stato la F1 McLaren; anche quest'ultimo era soltanto un Team di F1, ma ha stupito il mondo con una vettura che ha sancito la definizione di Supercar.

Aston Martin’s 1000 HP Hypercar Will Be A Manic Race Car For The Street: Source

Justin Westbrook

Earlier this year Aston Martin and Red Bull announced a Formula One partnership, and with it a new F1-inspired hypercar for the road designed by ace racing engineer Adrian Newey. Everything else about the car is a secret—until now, thanks to a tipster in the know who claims a lightweight 1,000 horsepower beast is on the way. Here’s what we’ve heard.

 

According to a tip sent to Jalopnik by an individual who attended an owner’s track day for the new Aston Martin Vulcan at Road Atlanta last week, a company executive showed off a design book of images and details about the new Newey-designed car, known publicly as AM-RB 001, to owners in attendance.

 

As with any car rumors, take these with a grain of salt, but our tipster swears by them.

 

  • Our source says the car, code-named “Nebula,” will be powered by a naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V12 with around 1,000 horsepower revving to almost 10,000 RPM. Meanwhile the new DB11 sports an all-new Aston Martin 5.0 liter V12 claimed to be good for around 600 hp. That sounds like a good starting point for “Nebula.”

 

  • The new hypercar is said to weigh around 2,300 pounds with a body designed with “a massive amount of negative space” and no wings or spoilers. I wonder if that means it will be able to slip under the toll booth boom barrier?

 

  • The underside of the car was described as featuring F1-inspired “venturi channels” flowing to an “upside-down jigsaw wing” that pulls the car down with air flowing in through a recognizable Aston Martin designed mouth. Again, all without the help of any tails or fins up top, because downforce is good and it’s cooler if you can’t see how it’s happening.

 

  • Our tipster described a surprisingly large interior with tandem seating with the driver and passenger “as close as they can get” (that doesn’t sound very large) and slightly angled in a v-shape with the point at the feet.

 

  • The rest of the car was said to feature typical Aston Martin design cues with side-exit exhaust leading the very edge of the back of the car, which was presented in British Racing Green. The best, most important green and fitting for what we’re working with.

 

  • Our tipster compared the car to the Caparo T1, another F1-inspired design featuring a lot of negative space, except with most of the aero-work filling more of the the underside of the body.

Apparently the owners at the Road Atlanta event where the upcoming car was briefly displayed were being encouraged to buy the Vulcan and other Aston models to secure themselves one of reportedly 99 models of the AM-RB 001 to be produced for sale. If Ferrari has taught us anything, it’s that you have to buy three cars at full price to get to the one you really want.

 

Aston Martin confirmed to Jalopnik that the owner’s drive with the Vulcan did take place at Road Atlanta but declined to comment on the details provided by our tipster. 

The car described to us sounds extremely similar to Adrian Newey’s other F1-inspired Red Bull designs, starting with the x2010, also known as the Red Bull X1, which appeared as a virtual car in Gran Turismo 5 and 6. So it sort of counts.

 

The virtual Red Bull x2010 was proclaimed to be the fastest road car ever, even though it never actually existed in the real world, with a claimed top speed of 292 mph and an engine producing a virtual 1,749 horsepower—which is either a lot or nothing at all. It’s kind of messing me up thinking about it.

 
Later versions of the car in 2011 and 2014 increased the top speed and added some additional wings and fans. Some cars even featured a gas turbine engine.

 

They were significantly lighter than the V12 Aston Martin we’ve been tipped off about, but I have little doubt these virtual concepts were Newey’s starting point for the upcoming partner car with Red Bull.

 

A report from CarBuzz suggests a summer reveal for the new hypercar, with an owner corroborating our tipster’s claims that some owners have been presented with the new car’s design and have even been given the opportunity to place an order.

 

They claim that all 99 cars have been sold for around $3.2 million each, which is about $3.195 million more than I can afford.

 

Whether our tipster’s claims are true or not, the very concept of an F1-inspired road car being spawned from the recent partnership between Red Bull and Aston Martin gets the juices flowing. All that is so far confirmed is that we should be expecting “the ultimate of all road cars.”

      Credo che brutale sia la parola piü giusta per descriverla, anche a livello estetico. Ci vedo tanto di AM anni '70/'80, quelle hairy-chested-cars dell'era pre-Callum.
