The unique and groundbreaking AM-RB 001, introduced in July at the Aston Martin headquarters in Gaydon, England, is an unprecedented fusion of form and function the likes of which has never before been seen in a road-legal vehicle.

Production of the AM-RB 001 will be strictly limited to only 150 cars, including prototypes and track-only versions. First deliveries will commence in 2019.
