Autocar becomes the first car magazine to have a ride in the super exclusive Aston Martin One-77.
It’s so exclusive they don’t even let Steve Cropley drive it! He has to ride shotgun in the passenger seat as Aston engineer and race driver Chris Porritt takes the car round the track for a little action. There’s also great information in there about this £1.4m Aston, but you won’t be listening to the men because you will be too busy marveling at the hyper car’s beauty.
The One-77 is Aston Martin’s definitive sports car, one that epitomises everything Aston Martin from technology, the hand-craftsmanship of the hand rolled aluminium panels to the attention to detail. A culmination of all the marque’s know-how, the Aston Martin One-77 delivers effortless beauty guaranteed to stir the senses with performance potential eclipsing any previous Aston Martin.
It’s powered by a 700bhp version of the V12 you find in Aston’s ordinary cars. With a projected weight of 1,500kg the Aston Martin One-77 will occupy the very highest echelons of road car performance. Top speed is confidently predicted to be in excess of 200mph, with a 0-60mph time in approximately 3.5sec.
