Red Bull is building a $6.1 million hypercar

Red Bull is teasing its first-ever road car, the $6.1 million (£5 million) RB17 hypercar, and it’s set to hit the market in 2025.

You might know Red Bull best as the energy drink brand that runs a bunch of sports teams, including in Formula 1.

Now, the company is set to join the likes of Ineos in shifting from having its name on F1 cars to actually building cars.

The RB17 car will be designed by Red Bull F1 chief technical officer Adrian Newey who also designed the Aston Martin Valkyrie.

Just 50 examples will be made, each powered by a turbocharged V8 hybrid powertrain making over 1100hp (820kW).

It will also feature the latest in ground effects technology, meaning it should offer seriously good handling.

Between the power and its aerodynamics, its performance should put it close to that of an F1 car.

Indeed, the RB17 name is one that Red Bull’s 2021 F1 car should’ve worn, but instead it was called the RB16B; the RB17 name was skipped and this season’s car jumped straight to RB18.

“With this car having true Formula 1 performance, it felt right that it fall in that lineage and have that ’17’ moniker,” Oracle Red Bull Racing boss Christian Horner said.

Although the price tag for it is sky-high, owners will get more than just the car.

Each buyer will also get access to Red Bull’s driving simulator facilities, as well as on-track driver training.

The RB17 will be built at the Red Bull Technology Campus in Milton Keynes, England.

As yet, the RB17 is yet to be officially unveiled, with no more than the silhouette drawings you see of it here to go off.
