Aston Martin RB-001 Hypercar

Aston Martin has recently partnered with Formula 1's 4-time  champion team Red Bull Racing and has been developing it's next hypercar. The car is designed by Red Bull Racing's legendary designer, Adrian Newey, the man behind Red Bull Racing's success. RB-001 is said to compete with giants like Ferrari, Bugatti and McLaren.

The car is packed tightly with all the luxuries like an air-conditioning unit, an infotainment system. The car looks pretty much like a covered Formula 1 car with no side skirts at all and highly aerodynamic design. The power to weight ratio is a 1000hp matched with 1000kgs of the car. 

The cockpit of the car is enough for Aston Martin's chief designer Marek Reichman, who is 6 feet 4 inches tall while the car is as low as 39.5 inches from the ground, which makes it lower than the 1960s le-mans winning Ford GT. The car is powered by a naturally aspirated V12 with no turbos or hybrid systems. The exhaust is a single, mounted at the rear. The door don't have any handles, instead they are touch activated and the body completely built with carbon fibre. 
The car was unveiled by Red Bull Racing's F1 driver Daniel Ricciardo. Aston Marin said the car unveiled was covered in some aspects like the headlights to protect Aston Martin's unique LED cluster. The  company also didn't allow photographing the bottom of the car to protect the details of its revolutionary aerodynamic design. 

The hypercar is limited to 99 units and some additional units limited for track purpose. It is expected to cost between a whooping 2.65m$ - 4m$. The automotive company will also offer a training course for drivers to educate about the new functions and working of the hypercar. The first prototype testing of the RB -001 will begin in late 2017 and first deliveries to customers from early 2019.
