Looming a (healthy) war in the segment of hiperdeportivos cars. On the one hand have, soon, the Mercedes-AMG Project One, while on the other hand will be shown AM-RB 001. Both are vehicles very limited with a more typical of a F1 performance than of a street car. It is no coincidence this claim, and is both inherit much technology and knowledge of the great circus of speed.
Recently we have known that the engine of the AM-RB 001 will be borne by Cosworth, one of the teams most popular in the world of motor racing when we refer to the high performance. Their displacement will be 6.5 -liter and the layout of cylinders will be V12. If you wonder about its power, long been the 1,000 HP, but still there is nothing confirmed, and begins to rumors a power closer to the 900 HP.
But the AM-RB 001 will not manufactured only by Aston Martin, Red Bull and Cosworth. There will also be other collaborators such as Ricardo, who will be in charge of the gearbox, or Bosch, who will supply the electronic management, as well as many others. To cite some more, have Rimac, as responsible for the supply of batteries, the Multimaccompany, developing the chassis monocoque carbon fiber, Alcon and Surface Transforms, that will brake with carbon discs, and the specialist system in Wipaclighting, which will develop the LED headlamps.
Among all partners (all of high prestige and long experience) are intended to develop a car capable of performing a 0-320-0 in 15 seconds and reach a speed tip exceeding 400 km/h. In addition, we expect a ratio of 1:1, a fact of great importance. As we know, aerodynamics is being developed by the footballer Adrian Newey.
This Hypercar with Cosworth engine will have a very limited production which, presumably, it will be 150 units including prototypes and 25 units manufactured exclusively for use in circuit. Its price it will be around 3 million euros and the first deliveries should arrive in 2019. As you would expect, all units have an assigned owner.
