Zapping The Blogauto Suzuki Vitara review
Obviously, Adrian Newey is a man who is bored even when he oversees the creation of a Formula 1 single-seater. So after creating the Valkyrie for Aston Martin, here he is working on the RB17. This car, which uses the nomenclature of Formula 1 single-seaters, will be homologated for the road.
This is the first time that Red Bull Advanced Technologies has taken care of everything from concept, to development and production. This production will be made in Milton Keynes at the Red Bull factory and will be limited to 50 copies. At 5 million pounds sterling the end (or 5.8 million euros) we can still bet that it will sell quickly (and is probably already reserved by many super rich collectors).
At the moment, not much is known about the RB17. The sketch does not look like much known and can let imagine an ultra-aerodynamic vehicle, with a bodywork on the skin of the mechanics. The mechanics will be a hybrid V8 that will develop 1100 horsepower. The car is expected to arrive in 2025.
RB promises carbon galore, a technology derived from Formula 1 and “the most advanced ground effect for a production car”. Newey must not have seen the McMurtry Speirling at Goodwod. A bit like Ferrari, Red Bull offer the car, with the added bonus of access to simulators, track training and a priori immersion in the Red Bull F1 team. Red Bull specifies that the RB17 will not only perpetuate existing positions at the factory, but also allow the creation of a hundred.

The car is still a dream. And not just the super rich who are bored in their daily lives and collect everything that rolls. Here, Red Bull offers a road F1. It was a bit of the promise of the Mercedes-AMG One which in the end could look like a classic GT coupe against a radical RB17. It’s hard to see Adrian Newey getting out of a vehicle in lukewarm water.
There remains the price, insane, but which totally reflects the almost unique side of the car, made by hand, according to the owner’s wishes, and with racing technology. We can’t wait to find out more, right? Small bonus, it’s not 100% electric…phew!
Red Bull Advanced Technologies has decided to release its own car after the Aston Martin Valkyrie adventure. 50 copies at over £5 million each. Hybrid engine and more than 1100 horsepower for a vehicle that should be radical.
