Aston Martin Reveals The AM-RB 003 Concept Hypercar


Continuing its majestic march into the manufacture of mid-engined hypercars, Aston Martin unveiled the sleek, futuristic design concept for their AM-RB 003 at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.

The British marque confirmed that the AM-RB 003 — previously known as Project 003 — will benefit from the deep involvement of Red Bull Advanced Technologies in its design and engineering, continuing one of the brightest and most exciting engineering partnerships in the world of luxury speedsters.

As its codename suggests, the AM-RB 003 follows the Aston Martin Valkyrie and Valkyrie AMR Pro as the third hypercar in Aston Martin’s mid-engined story. Both evolutionary and revolutionary, AM-RB 003 integrates concepts and technologies taken directly from F1TM, providing it with the power to meet and surpass the performance demands of existing top-end hypercar rivals.

Though making greater concessions to practicality and road use, AM-RB 003 will remain true to
that uncompromising engineering ethos, extending the trickle down of genuine state-of-the-art F1TM technology into a car built in larger numbers — but still strictly limited to 500 coupes worldwide — and making an aesthetic statement that’s unsurpassed.

According to Miles Nurnberger, Aston Martin Director of Design, while AM-RB 003 is heavily influenced by Aston Martin Valkyrie, it is very much its own car: “We were quite deliberate in AM-RB 003 to not disguise its lineage, but we were equally emphatic that it would be a distillation of Aston Martin Valkyrie and not a dilution. The design isn’t as extreme in some areas, but it pushes just as hard in others and is even taking certain ideas and concepts a step further. That’s a natural function of design evolution, but also a testament to just how great an influence working with Red Bull Advanced Technologies on Aston Martin Valkyrie has had on our approach to everything that’s come since.”
