Red Bull has unveiled its new livery for the upcoming campaign at a launch in association with team partner Puma in London.
The outfit, which collected successive world titles between 2010 and 2013, slipped to fourth in the standings amid initial struggles with its chassis and season-long frustration with power unit supplier Renault.
Red Bull ultimately remained with Renault for 2016 but its power units will be rebranded under the guise of new partners Tag Heuer.
"Over the years we evolved a certain look but with the clean sheet of paper we had this time we decided to do something very different," said team boss Christian Horner.
"It's innovative and aggressive. I think it will stand out on the grid and hopefully it will stand out in the mirrors of a few other cars. It looks right and things that look good tend to go well, so hopefully we'll see that on track."
Red Bull's livery was unveiled on a show car, with its RB12 set to be launched at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on Monday, ahead of the first day of pre-season testing.
Daniel Ricciardo and Daniil Kvyat will once again race for the team this season.
