Red Bull takes its cue from its rival on the race track and plans to produce its own hypercar. The company on Tuesday went to twitter to announce the RB17, which will be a two-seater with a hybrid V8 engine and 1,100 hp. Production begins in 2025, with Red Bull planning to make just 50 cars at a cost of £5 million (US$6.1 million) per vehicle.
If you happen to be a millionaire, purchasing the F1-inspired RB17 will give you access to Red Bull’s team simulators and on-track training. The company will also service and service the car for you at the Milton Keynes factory in England, where it plans to produce the RB17.
“The RB17 marks the first time a Red Bull-branded car has been made available to collectors,” said Christian Horner, CEO of Red Bull Racing. “The RB17 distills everything we know about creating masterful Formula 1 cars into a package that delivers extreme performance in a two-seat racing car.”
Adrian Newey, Red Bull’s Chief Technical Officer, designs the vehicle. Its résumé includes the Aston Martin Valkyrie and all four of Red Bull’s F1 championship cars. Red Bull said the RB17 would be built around a carbon composite hull and body designed to capture ground effect like modern F1 cars. exploits cars.
