Aston Martin One-77

One-77 fuses advanced technology with stunning Aston Martin design to create possibly the world’s most desirable automotive art form. Based on a sophisticated carbon-fibre One-77 chassis with a hand-crafted aluminium body, this 7.3 litre V12 supercar will deliver exhilarating performance for a strictly limited number of discerning customers.

Prior to the One-77’s Paris Motor Show debut, various details about the car had been leaked, but official specifications were not fully revealed until the 2009 Geneva Auto Show. The One-77 will feature a full carbon fibre monocoque chassis, a handcrafted aluminium body, and a naturally aspirated 7.3 litre V12 engine with 750 hp (560 kW).

Aston Martin claim that this will be the most powerful naturally aspirated production engine in the world when the car is delivered. The car will also use a strengthened version of the DB9‘s 6-speed automated manual transmission and height-adjustable pushrod suspension coupled with dynamic stability control. It will feature Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires (255/35 ZR20 front, 335/30 ZR20 rear) and Carbon Ceramic Matrix brakes. Top speed was estimated to be 200 mph (320 km/h) but actual tests in December 2009 showed a figure of 220.007 mph (354.067 km/h), with a 0-60 mph time in approximately 3.5 seconds. The projected weight is 1,500 kg (3,307 lb).

Due to the lack of details from Aston Martin, many automotive publications have speculated on the final pricing of the car. While estimates vary, all expect the price to easily run in the millions.

According to the website 925.nl, the One-77 will cost approximately £1,050,000. However, the Australian newspaper The Courier-Mail expects it to be priced at around AU$2.6 million. According to the British magazine Top Gear, the car’s price will be £1,200,000, while the American magazine Robb Report expects it to be priced at US$1,700,000.
