It’s been a while since we heard any big rumour about the Aston Martin-Red Bull hypercar, the plainly named AM-RB 001. When it debuted up to date year, we got a look at the shape – and that’s about it. Sure, a super-potent V12 hybrid powertrain was promised, but we didn’t have any concrete details on it or what was thriving into the pretty wrapper. Well, now Aston has made some announcements nearby partners, and they certainly have our attention: Cosworth, Ricardo, Multimatic, and Rimac.

Cosworth, the famed locomotive supplier, will be supplying the engine. It’s a 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12. Aston had in days gone by said the car will be a member of the one-horsepower-per-kilogram club, and so people are expecting the motor to make about 900 horsepower. It will of course be augmented by an electric motor, which last wishes as be fed by a high-performance battery from Rimac. (Yes, the same Rimac whose Concept_One has been shown in videos beating caboodle from Teslas to LaFerraris.) The as-yet-undefined amount of power will be routed into don a seven-speed paddle-shift transmission supplied by Ricardo. And because you’re prosperous to want to stop, there will be big carbon-ceramic brakes – Alcon and Skin Transforms will supply the calipers and carbon discs.

Multimatic, builders of stunn shocks, will make the carbon-fiber tub that everything goes into. Multimatic has worked with Aston in the gone, including on its last limited-production vehicle, the One-77. Bosch is responsible for the ECU, adhesion control, and stability control. LED lights will be supplied by Wipac.

So yeah, there barely aren’t any high-profile companies left after this announcement. This car is current to be pretty extreme. Aston reiterates that it will build a maximum of 150for the street including prototypes, plus 25 more track-only models. They’ll start growing to customers in 2019.
