http://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/aston ... rs-680099/The British sportscar manufacturer announced a technology partnership with Red Bull on Thursday that brings its name back to F1 and will help create what it hopes will be the fastest road car ever.
The initial plan is to restrict numbers of cars produced to just 99, with a price tag estimated to be greater than $1 million (USD).
Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer said that the mission was clear: its limited edition model will have to be quicker than F1.
When asked if the AM-RB 001 had to be the fastest road car ever created, he said: "If you put it out there, somebody will always try to beat you - which is probably the point.
"As we sit here today, the raison d'etre that we've given the team is to be faster than an F1 car around Silverstone – or indeed any other F1 track.
"I am sure there are other cars that can go in straight lines quicker than this. We don't make drag cars, we make cars you can use. That is the raison d'etre we use."
Well, can´t say i´m not looking forward to seeing this thing. And if it actually will be quicker then a current F1 car.
coming from the people who built the RB6 downforce monster..Taking unrestricted aerodynamics, this car will be seriously, seriously quick. And the initial indications we have had from it is that it has generated more downforce than any car that we have ever produced."
