Aston Martin AM-RB 001 hypercar is bonkers


[MUSIC] [John] The AM RB 001 concept can pull 3G in
the corner and the track version and incredible 4g that means if you don’t
buckle up your seat belt you can break a rib on how that feels like [Feann] to be like
this. The development driver for this wild machine is my mate F1 Aussie
driver Dan Riccardo [John] You know the D Banger? [Feann] No not really. [John] Why is he involved?
[Feann] Well he’s the red bull racing F1 driver and that teams aerodynamic mastermind
Adrian Newey developed most of these swoopy bits around the car [MUSIC] [Feann] So what sort of heat is it packing under there? [John] Well mate underneath there is a
state-of-the-art V12 hybrid power plant that will push out around 745 kilowatts
about a thousand horsepower and my money Factory in a weight of less than 1000
kilos this is lighter than an MX-5 this thing is seriously going to shift. [Feann] This is
going to be a game changer in terms of performance it’s going to be faster than
hypercars from the light of Porsche, Ferrari and McLaren [John] and not just in a straight
line around the circuit like Silverston Aston martin claims this car will be up
to 25 seconds quicker than any of the above. [Feann] Aston Martin has had to completely
re-think it’s cabin design introducing a
safety wall between the driver and passenger
[John] That’s right in virtual simulations Aston Martin discovered that
the passengers legs are actually clashing with the drivers pedals [MUSIC] [John] Where’s the wing mirrors? [Feann] Doesn’t have any
[John]Because it’s so fast right? [Feann] Doesn’t need them, new laws mean that
this car is gonna use little video cameras
with vision beamed inside to the driver [John] Another piece of technology the
AM RB 001 concept will feature is an advanced active suspension technology
that can raise or lower the ride height about 50 Millimeters. [MUSIC] [John] yeah okay I’m so I’ll have one
[Feann] yeah no dramas their only four and a half
million bucks throwing luxury car tax that’s about six million dollars
[John]So when can I get one? [Feann]Not until 2019 I’m afraid and they’ll
be rearer than hen’s teeth, no more the 150
cars will be built [John] and don’t forget out of that 150, 25
with the ultra-exclusive hardcore track version for trackday enthusiasts
[Feann] and even then if you want to get one you better be well connected because demand
is being ready outstripping supply. [MUSIC]
