Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer has essentially assured that the superb AM-RB 001 foreshadows an eventual second mid-engine supercar from the British brand.
During an exclusive interview with AutoGuide.com [ME]
during the AM-RB 001’s debut at the Toronto Auto Show, Palmer yielded an interesting clue into the company’s future.
When prompted on what the AM-RB 001 hypercar signifies about Aston Martin’s future, Palmer spoke with a quietly excited passion. “As our halo car, it encompasses everything we know about sports car design,” he said. “It’s extremely lightweight, it uses composite materials everywhere, it has amazing aerodynamics, and the whole underbody is one big diffuser.
“It pilots what would be our design DNA for a mid-engine car, which obviously implies that there’s a mid-engine car in our future.”
