Dr. Andy Palmer, President and CEO of Aston Martin, also announced the luxury sports car maker will be partnering with Canadian firm Multimatic of Markham, ON to manufacture the AM-RB001 when it goes into production.

Road-Test.org, @autoshowcanada, #AutoShowOhCanada, #CIAS2017With lightweight construction paramount, the AM-RB 001’s MonoCell is constructed from carbon fibre by world-leading composite experts, Multimatic. A long-standing technology partner on projects such as One-77 and Aston Martin Vulcan, Multimatic will combine its unrivalled manufacturing experience with Red Bull Advanced Technologies’ knowledge gained from the design and build of ultra-competitive, championship-winning Formula One cars.

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.
