AM-RB 001 hypercar said to produce more than 1,800kg of downforce

Attached Image According to an article on the Wall Street Journal, the Aston Martin's and Red bull Technologies's AM-RB 001 will be able to develop more than 1,800kg of downforce.

Revealed by its designer, Adrian Newey, the crazy figure means that the car is said to be able to corner a up to 4g of lateral acceleration. In contrast, a Formula 1 car can only muster 3.5g while a McLaren P1 GTR manages only around 2.5g.

The magic in creating such high cornering force is thanks to the car's advanced underbody air channel design which will be so effective that the hypercar won't have to use a large rear wing that might ruin the overall design of the car.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

I don't mean to sound stupid. If worried about car flying of the road, the simple solution is to bolted the car to the road with long screws.

It all marketing to sell their car as each company needs to have something one up against the others.
