The incredible hypercar collaboration between Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing, formerly known only as the AM-RB 001, has been rechristened the Aston Martin Valkyrie, according to Aston Martins Twitter account.
The car, as the tweet notes, joins "a fine lineage of Aston Martin V cars"by which the company means models like the Vantage and Vanquish.
What we know about the car so far is that its aiming for a 1:1 power-to-weight ration (measured in brake horsepower per kilogram), and will use a lightweight carbon fiber MonoCell toward that goal. Aston has also tapped UK-based engine builder and F1 icon Cosworth to build the models bespoke naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter V-12, augmented with a Rimac battery system. Ricardo will construct the seven-speed paddle-shift transmission. The car has some pretty lofty goals: a 250-mph top speed, 4.5 g of cornering grip, and a 10-second sprint to 200 mphplus, 4,000 pounds of downforce, all without a rear wing.
