The RB17 hypercar will have a starting price of 5 million pounds ($6.1 million) before local taxes and will be restricted to 50 units when production starts in 2025, the company said in an announcement on Tuesday.
The cars will be legal for racetracks only, allowing the company to achieve the “purest execution of an F1-inspired hypercar,” it said in a statement.
Tthe team’s in-house Red Bull Advanced Technologies division is developing the two seater. A V8 hybrid engine producing more than 1,100 hp will power the car, the UK-based company said. The source of the engine was not announced and no performance figures were given.
The configuration of the combustion engine splits the Valkyrie, which uses a 1,155 hp hybrid V12 unit, and the AMG-Mercedes One hypercar, employing a variation of the Mercedes F1 team’s 1.6-liter V6 hybrid powertrain making more than 1,000 hp.
