All die-hard Formula 1 racing fans know who this British guy is. He is Adrian Newey. He has been working for Red Bull Racing as the Chief Technical Officer since 2006. His main job is to design a super Grand Prix car.

He has been dreaming about building a road car. And now he is on it! The AM-RB 001 is definitely going to be his masterpiece.

Newey first started designing a Formula 1 car with March/Leyton House in 1988. Then he moved to Williams in 1991. His career went on with McLaren in 1997. During that period of time, McLaren was arguably the fastest car of Grand Prix race track.
