Aston Martin has officially unveiled the One-77, which represents all the brand has to offer in terms of craftsmanship and engineering. The One-77 will be the most powerful and fastest Aston Martin ever made.
The front-engine, rear-wheel-drive supercar features a very special version of Aston Martin’s 6.0L V12 engine that’s been tuned by Cosworth. Enlarged to 7.3 liters of displacement, the One-77’s V12 is a full 25% lighter than the engine on which it’s based while producing in excess of 750 bhp. Aston Martin expects a 0-60mph time of just 3.5 seconds and top speed over 200 mph.
The One-77 also features a monocoque tub comprised entirely of carbon fiber, which helps keep its curb weight around 3,300 lbs. A unique inboard suspension system, six-speed sequential manual gearbox and carbon ceramic brakes all around are a few of the standard features of the One-77.
Aston Martin is building only 77 examples of this remarkable car. The first is due to be delivered to a customer before the end of 2009 with the remaining 76 units coming in 2010.
