Aston Martin has revealed that is is working with some technical partners on its new Aston Martin AM-RB 001.
The Aston Martin AM-RB 001 will be powered by a 6.5 litre V12 engine that will be built by Cosworth and it will feature a new custom 7 speed paddle shift transmission designed by Red Bull and built by Ricardo.
The heart of every Aston Martin is its engine. Never more so than in the AM-RB 001, which is why it has been entrusted to legendary engine builder, Cosworth. An illustrious name with an impeccable motorsport pedigree, the UK-based company will bring all its Formula One and high performance production engine experience to bear in the design and manufacture of the AM-RB 001’s bespoke, high-revving 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine.
Mated to AM-RB 001’s all-new engine is a bespoke 7-speed paddle-shift transmission. Designed and manufactured by Ricardo, to Red Bull Advanced Technologies’ specification, the gearbox will be the perfect partner to Cosworth’s V12. Conforming to the radical hypercar’s ethos of minimal mass and maximum efficiency and led by Red Bull Advanced Technologies’ simulation work, Ricardo will deploy intelligent engineering solutions to achieve Newey’s uncompromising goals.
There will be just 150 road versions of the AM-RB 001 made and on top of this there will be 25 additional cars which are for the track only.
