Aston Martin’s rebirth is already off to a good start with a new V12 engine and a promising successor for the DB9, but as well as replacing its ageing line-up, it’s been announced today that the manufacturer will also build a hypercar. A properly bonkers hypercar.

It’s all thanks to Aston Martin becoming an ‘Innovation Partner’ with Red Bull Racing, and the deal includes - as well as Aston’s wing logo appearing on Red Bull F1 cars this year - the expertise of a certain Adrian Newey. Yep, the legendary F1 designer and Red Bull’s Chief Technical Officer will collaborate with Marek Reichman - Aston’s Chief Creative Officer - to produce the new hypercar.

It’s codenamed ‘AM-RB 001’, and while exact details are currently lacking, it’s set to be stonkingly fast. Aston Martin told us to expect something along the lines of “F1 crossed with LMP1”, and a package which should be faster than a current F1 car around Silverstone. And yes, it’ll still be road legal…

As far as engines go, we’d expect Aston Martin to use its new twin-turbo 5.2-litre V12, with the boost pressure cranked up to a healthy degree. Since the car will no doubt receive a lot of F1-inspired tech thanks to the presence of Newey, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the internal combustion engine’s output supplemented by electric motors and a hybrid system.

As to what it’ll look like, that’s anyone’s guess; all we have to go on so far is this sketch. And it’ll be a little while before we see it in the metal - given that this is a clean sheet design of a highly bespoke nature, the first cars probably won’t be in the hands of owners until at least 2018.
