When a racing team funded by an energy drink maker and one of the world’s most premier luxury performance carmakers come together on a project, the result can be pretty stunning.SEE ALSO: Ford gave its $450,000 GT supercar a limited-edition ’60s race car makeoverAston Martin and Formula 1 team Red Bull Racing unveiled Tuesday morning the result of a joint venture to create the world’s latest and greatest hypercar. It’s called the AM-RB-001 and though it’s lacking a dynamic nameplate, its body, engine and lineage easily make up for it.

The hierarchy of performance cars goes: sports car, supercar and hypercar, from least to most. Sports cars are quick but accessible both in performance and price — think Mazda Miata. Supercars like the Lamborghini Huracán are faster and wilder still and carry price tags around $180,000 and above.Then at the very top, where few cars lie, are hypercars like the Lamborghini Centenario, which are available only to the super rich. That’s because they can cost as much as a large villa — the AM-RB-001 is speculated to cost $3 million (a figure Aston Martin won’t confirm, but a representative did note it was a “reasonable” estimate) — and accelerate faster than, say, a speeding bullet (not really, but you get what I mean).
