Aston Martin-Red Bull F1 will work on mid-engined hypercar

  • Published On: 16 March 2018

The company wants to set a new hypercar benchmark.

Aston Martin and the Red Bull F1 team will collaborate to create a LaFerrari- and McLaren P1-rivalling, mid-engined car. The car looks at setting a new benchmark for hypercars in the £1m (approximately Rs 9 crore) price range. The car will be due in 2021. The car will probably make more power than any production car previously sold, including the likes of the LaFerrari and McLaren P1.

The car may either be an uprated version of an existing car or will be a halo product to showcase Aston’s skills in the mid-engined supercar market. The project has been called the ‘brother of Valkyrie’ and it will likely be sold in extremely limited numbers.

It could use an all-new chassis architecture using a new carbonfibre monocoque and similar aluminium sub-frames. Aston boss Andy Palmer hasn’t given us any details on the powertrain that will be used by the ‘brother of Valkyrie’, but it will feature electrified technology. The company could even collaborate with Mercedes’ AMG arm or a brand like Cosworth, which is developing the 1,000+hp 6.5-litre V12 in the Valkyrie.
