Aston Martin One-77

Aston Martin One-77
Aston Martin releases a second murky picture of the Project One-77 supercar.

By Mark Nichol 29th September 2008
Aston Martin has officially unveiled a second teaser shot of the One-77 supercar – days after it leaked onto the Internet.

As the name suggests, only 77 will be made with a base price of £1,050,000, not including VAT or any extras! Exclusivity is therefore guaranteed.

At present there’s little by way of official information about this new halo product, but Aston has now confirmed that deliveries will begin at the end of 2009 and given away rough engine specs.

Set to be powered by a 7.3-litre V12 engine with an output ‘expected to top 700bhp’, the One-77 will boast a top speed of over 200mph and feature ‘active aerodynamic technology’. Presumably that refers to a retractable rear spoiler, which would explain the cut out section seen clearly beneath the rear glass in this new image.

Underpinned by a new carbon fibre monocoque body, the two-seater retains the classic Aston Martin look, though adds aggressive side scoops and detailing like roof creases and bonnet vents to set it apart. Weight is expected to hover around the 1,500kg mark, and the car will get adjustable suspension and carbon ceramic brakes.

All 77 One-77 customers will be able to specify either a right or left hand drive car, with the opportunity to work with Aston Martin in creating a completely bespoke vehicle – with the entire interior and chassis setup open to customisation.

Aston Martin One-77
Shock new Aston supercar breaks cover carrying a £1.2m price tag.

By Sam Hardy 08th August 2008

The wraps have come off the ultimate Aston Martin. This stunning machine is an all-new supercar from the famous British firm that will go on sale late next year, taking the company into uncharted territory carrying a £1.2million price tag and power from a 7.0-litre V12 engine.
More expensive than the Bugatti Veyron, the newcomer will be limited to a production run of just 77 cars – hence its current codename, One-77. A real bolt from the blue, Aston has managed to keep the entire project under wraps until now. It will be inviting a select group of customers to see a finished model before the end of the year.
Details are scarce but the One-77 will be powered by a 7.0-litre V12 – boasting around 650bhp – get a handcrafted aluminium body and a carbonfibre chassis. As a result it is likely to do 0-60mph in 3.5 seconds and have a top speed to 220mph. Aston says potential owners will be able to personalise virtually every aspect of the car.
