Aston One-77 – super fast very exclusive

Aston Martin one-77 fq

Despite global economic crisis, Aston Martin is not backing down from high-priced territory. Its Rapide four-door coupe is on the way, the as-yet un-named convertible DBS is due shortly,and development of the V12 Vantage continues. The next DB9 and Vantage are rumoured to be going further up-market, but not before the ultra-premium One-77 lands in the hands of a few very fortunate customers. A total production run of 77, will make the model very exclusive indeed.

The mysterious One-77 won’t be officially unveiled in full until next year, but the first batch of pictures is already out, and initial specs have now found their way onto the internet. CEO Ulrich Bez has confirmed that power will come from a potent derivative of the company’s existing 6-liter V12, bored and stroked to 7 liters and producing around 700 horsepower and 520 lb-ft of torque. All that power will have to move just 1500kg, lighter than the 1630kg V8 Vantage, the 1760kg DB9 and even the lightweight 1690kg DBS. Bez claims that an all-out performance battle with the Bugatti Veyron isn’t the point of the One-77, but a crazy high top-speed is all but guaranteed.
