A new hypercar is to combine the cutting edge technology found in Formula One with the signature sporty design of British carmaker Aston Martin.
The luxury manufacturer has teamed up with Red Bull Racing to produce the ground-breaking hypercar, in a project which has been codenamed 'AM-RB 001'.
The partnership will be spearheaded by Red Bull Racing's Chief Technical Officer, Adrian Newey, and Aston Martin's Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichman, who will be supported by some of the world's best aerodynamicists, composite experts and manufacturing masters.
Reichman, who was behind some of Aston Martin's most prestigious models, including the recently revealed DB11 and the Vulcan, commented:
"We are in the process of developing a hypercar that combines the latest in aerodynamics from F1 and the stunning design language of an Aston Martin sports car.
"The opportunity to collaborate with Adrian and Red Bull Advanced Technologies will be a fascinating experience for everyone involved.
"Unconstrained by F1 regulations, we have a unique chance to create a car in its most efficient form that will represent the ultimate fusion of art and technology."
Ex-Formula One racer Newey added: "From the age of six I have had two goals in life – to be involved in the design of racing cars, and to be involved in the design of a super car. Whilst the former ambition went on to form my career to date, the latter has always bubbled away, resulting in countless sketches and doodles over the years.
"The opportunity to now develop and realise those ideas whilst working with Marek and his colleagues from Aston Martin is tremendously exciting. It allows us to translate the technology we have developed in F1 into a new arena."
