Red Bull RB17: the arrival of the hypercar with more than 1000 hp is imminent

Its cutting-edge aerodynamic design and exceptional downforce position it as one of the most efficient. Limited to just 50 units and selling for over 5.8 million euros, it offers a unique experience for thrill-seekers. The official reveal is scheduled for this summer.

Featuring an Atmospheric V10

The Red Bull Racing Group is ready to shake up the hypercar scene with their latest creation, the RB17. Moving away from traditional Formula 1, engineer and designer Adrian Newey states in a podcast that “this model will revolutionize the world of high-performance cars.” The RB17 is set to compete with the Mercedes-AMG One and the Aston Martin Valkyrie. Rumors suggest that this hypercar will be powered by a naturally aspirated V10 engine. Newey claims that this V10 engine will reach an incredible 15,000 rpm, producing a massive 1,000 horsepower, with an additional 200 horsepower from an electric unit! But what’s just as impressive as the power is the lightweight nature of the RB17. Red Bull is aiming for an empty weight of less than 1000 kg, defying conventions and creating a hypercar lighter than many traditional sports cars. With its avant-garde aerodynamic design, this hypercar is positioned as one of the most aerodynamic cars ever created. Newey even suggests that the RB17 could rival the performance of a Formula 1 car, thanks to a colossal downforce of 1,700 kg at over 200 km/h.

An Expensive and Exclusive Model

The legality of driving the RB17 on the road remains uncertain, but it is presented as an exceptional track car. Priced at 5 million pounds sterling (about 5.8 million euros), this hypercar represents a significant investment for thrill-seekers and collectors. Red Bull also promises comprehensive training for owners, including use of Red Bull’s F1 simulator. With production limited to just 50 copies, it’s worth noting that actual availability will be 49 units, as Adrian Newey has reserved the 50th unit for himself. With the design and technical specifications finalized, Red Bull plans to test various components of the car from 2024. A full reveal is set for this summer, while track testing will commence in 2025, with plans to deliver the cars to customers in 2026.
