Created by Adrian Newey, CTO of Oracle Red Bull Racing and Red Bull Advanced Technologies, the RB17 will be manufactured at the Red Bull Technology Campus in Milton Keynes from 2025 and will be limited to 50 units.

“The RB17 distils everything we know about creating championship-winning Formula One cars into a package that delivers extreme levels of performance in a two-seat track car,” Newey said in a statement. “Driven by our passion for performance at every level, the RB17 pushes design and technical boundaries far beyond what has been previously available to enthusiasts and collectors.”

Powered by a V8 hybrid engine developing over 1,100bhp, the RB17 is said to feature the most advanced ground effect package available in a series production car. Full technical details for the RB17 will be released at a later date.

Pricing starts at £5m and ownership will include access to simulators, vehicle program development and on-track training and experiences. The RB17 will be supported directly by the factory, with servicing and maintenance support tailored to each owner.

Christian Horner, CEO of Oracle Red Bull Racing and Red Bull Advanced Technologies, said: “The RB17 marks an important milestone in the evolution of Red Bull Advanced Technologies, now fully capable of creating and manufacturing a series production car at our Red Bull Technology Campus. Further, the RB17 marks the first time that a car wearing the Red Bull brand has been available to collectors.”

The creation of the RB17 will secure existing jobs and create over 100 new positions in Milton Keynes, in addition to the economic benefits across project partners and suppliers.
