When Aston Martin revealed the One-77 supercar they announced it would be powered by the same 6.0-liter V12 engine featured in the DB9. This would lead some people to expect the One-77 to produce about 470hp as the DB9 does or 700hp like the previous One-77 model. Those people would be horribly, horribly wrong. The Aston Martin One-77’s V12 engine has been tuned to deliver an insane 750 HP and 750Nm of torque, making it the most powerful naturally aspirated engine in the world today.
Dr. Ulrich Bez, Chief Executive of Aston Martin said: "The One-77 is approaching a production reality and of course, there is considerable excitement in the project. Now the next steps are all about details and refinement to complete the composition. I know the final car will demonstrate what the Aston Martin team is capable of."
The One-77 will feature a front mid-mounted engine and the transmission mounted toward the rear of the car. What will be unique to the One-77 will be that the suspension will be mounted inboard to further increase the weight to the ideal center of the car. It will be limited to only 77 units and priced at $1.3 million.
