Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing have launched the AM-RB 001 hyper car at the 2016 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. A private reception which was hosted by Aston Martin CEO Dr Andy Palmer and Red Bull Racing Driver Max Verstappen presented this car at Etihad Towers, Abu Dhabi. The product is a partnership between the British firm and the F1TM team.
Palmer said: “All of those involved in AM-RB 001 are extremely proud of the car, and I have no doubt it will make automotive history. Its reception around the world has been phenomenal, and we expect those in the Middle East to be no less excited.”
Red Bull Racing Team Principal, Christian Horner, added: “The AM-RB 001 has been an inspirational project to deliver in synergy with our partners Aston Martin. As we reveal the car at different cities across the globe, it is incredibly rewarding to see the delight and reactions of those viewing it for the first time.”
“We will no doubt witness as much of a sense of wonder and excitement here in Abu Dhabi and across venues in the Middle East, as anywhere else in the world.”
A track-only AM-RB 001 is also in development. In total, 150 road-going models will be made 25 track-only versions, with first deliveries commencing in 2019.
