Ignition - - Front Page -

Mak­ing its first auto show ap­pear­ance af­ter be­ing re­vealed last sum­mer, the As­ton Martin AM-RB 001 con­cept is some­thing to be­hold. The sleek and low-slung hy­per­car, which is be­ing co-de­vel­oped with Red Bull Ad­vanced Tech­nolo­gies and project part­ner AF Rac­ing, isn't just a de­sign ex­er­cise, ei­ther – As­ton will build and sell this car. Pro­to­types are ex­pected to be ready for on-road test­ing in the U.K. by the end of the year, with the first de­liv­er­ies begin­ning in 2019. Pow­ered by a Cos­worth 6.5-litre nat­u­rally as­pi­rated V12 en­gine mated to a seven-speed pad­dle shift au­to­matic, As­ton Martin will build just 175 (25 track only) copies of the AM-RB 001. And yes, all are al­ready spo­ken for.
