Aston Martin One-77 fully revealed… almost

Aston Martin One-77 fully revealed… almost

Dr. Ulrich Bez as he revealed the Aston Martin One-77 yesterday at the Geneva Motor Show, paraphrased the classic Rolls-Royce performance description: The performance of the One-77 is “more than enough”, as if that will ever be the case with supercars. That said, this will be one seriously fast machine.

Revealed for the first time is the completely exposed exterior and guts of the most expensive and highest performing production Aston Martin ever built. Starting with the typical 6.0L V12 block, the displacement has been increased to 7.3L and the output is somewhere above of 750 hp. Zooming to 100 kph will come somewhere in the lower half of the three-second range and the car’s top speed is high enough to be utterly irrelevant. The first completed carbon fibre and aluminum chassis was also on display.

The only part remaining unrevealed is the interior, which will be coming later this year. In the meantime, start saving those gold coins because Aston Martin is building only 77 examples of this extraordinary car. The first is due to be delivered to a customer before the end of 2009 with the remaining 76 units coming in 2010.
