One year on since Autocar broke the news that Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing were collaborating on a road car project, the design of that car, codenamed the AM-RB 001, has been revealed

The groundbreaking two-seater is the first road car to be created by Red Bull’s chief technical officer Adrian Newey and Aston Martin’s Marek Reichman and David King, design boss and special operations chief respectively.

A high-revving, high-capacity V12 propels the AM-RB 001, which uses clever aerodynamics to generate the same cornering forces as a Formula 1 or Le Mans racing car.
