Perfect is probably the best word to describe Aston Martin One-77! This amazing blend of style, performance and heritage is so swell it can melt your heart! and then it’ll be boiled and blown away by the speed of the thing! During recent development tests the One-77 managed to achieve a top speed of 354.86 km/h (220 mph).
This mind boggling performance is actually better than what Aston’s engineers were expecting! The One-77 should thank its bang-on aerodynamics and lightweight body and its monocoque chassis for this. Of course the 7.3 liter V12 engine takes the most credit here.
The Aston One-77 is one of the best cars in the history of automotive and you gotta love it. Unfortunately though, it is one of those sad love stories in which you never make it! Because the One-77 is limited to 77 units, and each one cost a mere £1.2 million! But boy is it lovely.
Aston Martin’s One-77 supercar has moved closer to setting a new all-time record for the British marque in initial high speed testing after surpassing all predictions and comfortably breaking the 200mph mark.
The One-77 is currently undergoing a stringent development process ahead of planned launch in 2010 with high speed testing taking place at a top secret proving ground in southern Europe. In a series of test runs completed last week the One-77 exceeded original expectations and recorded a 220.007mph (354.86kmh) top speed in dry but windy conditions under the guidance of the Aston Martin engineering team. Dynamic testing is now scheduled to continue into the New Year.
Powered by a new Aston Martin 7.3 litre V12 engine, the One-77 is engineered to deliver breathtaking levels of power and performance. The dramatically styled two-door, two-seat sports coupe is based on an innovative new carbon fibre monocoque body structure and adopts new active aerodynamic technology.
The One-77 is the ultimate expression of what Aston Martin stands for and will combine modern technology and design with craftsmanship and ultimate exclusivity to create the world’s most desirable automotive art form.
As name suggests, production is limited up to a maximum of 77 individually numbered examples, with deliveries expected to commence in mid-2010.
