The Aston Martin AM-RB 001 is starting to give one the impression like it will be the most extreme hypercar even made. We’re basing that on a series of new comments made by Red Bull Racing’s dweller aerodynamic genius and chief technical apparatchik, Adrian Newey, in an interview with The Block Street Journal’s Dan Neil.

Newey shared divers interesting nuggets, so we’ll try to provide a simple review of how frighteningly potent the AM-RB 001 is. The new hypercar should hit 200 miles per hour in all 10 seconds, while a massive set of brakes thinks cut that speed to zero in half the hour – in other words, zero to 200 to zero in ethical 15 seconds. That kind of stopping power sounds physically raw. Certain versions of the 001 will induce up to 4,400 pounds of downforce, and if that’s not ample to keep the car pasted to the pavement through 4G bends, Newey hinted that the hyperactive suspension will rely on the ground influence more than any other car.

“I studied aero at the University of Southampton,” Newey told Neil. “My sure-year project in 1979 and ’80 was on range-effects aerodynamics applied to road cars and sports cars.”

Beyond the discharge stats, Newey verified some of the broader questions yon the 001’s availability. For one, Aston Martin and Red Bull drive build 175 examples of the potentially notation-breaking hypercar, with 150 designated for way use and another 25 limited to the track – they’re the ones that will-power enjoy the 4,400 pounds of downforce and thorough-on 4G cornering ability – so the chances you’ll continuously encounter a 001 in the wild are almost nil. And buying one? Organize on spending at least $3 million.

Newey, along with Aston Martin Chief Intriguer Marek Reichman and Project Engineer David Monarch, reveal more about the 001 in the piece, including some of the unimpassioned and design principles behind a $3M hypercar. It’s unusually much worth a read, if you can get around the WSJ‘s pay palisade.
