Back in March, Aston Martin and Red Bull confirmed that they were hard at work on creating the world’s fastest hypercar: Project Nebula, a successor of sorts to Aston’s own Vulcan. Now, just a few short months later, the wraps have been taken off the fruits of the collaboration. Aptly dubbed the AM-RB 001, the vehicle comes in the form of a V12 mid-engine two-seater — one helmed by renowned F1 engineer and longtime McLaren man Adrian Newey, as well as Aston’s Marek Reichman and David King. Though tech specs have yet to be revealed, Aston Martin says the lightweight carbon fiber hypercar will be assembled at its Gaydon facility in the United Kingdom and feature 25 track-specific models along with between 99 and 150 street-legal units. According to Red Bull, the customer list for those production units “reads like a who’s who of F1 legends, moguls, and megastars.” Said Newey of the project:
The synergy between Red Bull Racing and Aston Martin is clear. I knew Red Bull Racing had the ability to handle the pure performance aspects, but Aston Martin’s experience of making beautiful, fast, and comfortable GT cars is of great benefit to the project.
The AM-RB 001 is currently on track to arrive in 2018. Watch evo‘s extensive video review below.
