Priced at $1.4 million each, the Aston Martin One-77 is an extremely special edition super car limited to only 77 units, all of them already sold to lucky owners who will be getting a 6.0 Liter V12 that makes 700 HP. The One-77 weighs in at a mere 3,300 pounds, thanks in large part to the extensive use of carbon fiber. The One-77 is capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 seconds in under 3.5 seconds and will have a top speed well in excess of 200 MPH. In fact, the One-77 became the fastest Aston Martin ever when it reached 220.007 MPH.
Picture are all well and good, especially when you don’t have a whole lot of options to choose from. However, as is the case, ’pictures may be worth a thousand words; videos are worth the whole library’.
When we recently scooped up photos of that divine white Aston Martin One-77 frolicking around in the streets of London on its way to the rally parade at the new Silverstone racetrack, we figured that it would only be a matter of time before videos of the whole shindig found themselves on YouTube.
Turns out, we didn’t have to wait long.
At $2 million a pop, it’s not hard for the One-77 to stand out, even if it’s accompanied by a large number of supercars. That’s exactly where the One-77 found itself as it was joined by a what’s what of supercars on its way to the Silverstone rally. Some eagle-eyed fellows managed to take a video of the supercar at the St. James district in London as it rolled around the streets with everybody possessing two eyes staring at it intently. That is, of course, the price you pay for being a $2 million supercar, something only a handful of other cars in this world can boast.
There aren’t a lot of supercars that are capable of standing out in a large supercar rally. For the rare ones that do grab your attention, you’d be hard-pressed to find anything more pleasantly eye-catching than seeing a white Aston Martin One-77 leading the pack.
The truth is, there aren’t a lot of cars in this world that are as ’beastly’ as the One-77. So when Aston Martin rolled out the superduper car for its first public outing last weekend dressed in white no less, you could say that a lot of eyebrows were raised.
Don’t worry, though. It’s not the kind of picqued curiosity associated with cars being given a touch of overkill. The white One-77 is actually beauty personified, a living contradiction of a monster of a car dressed in a clean, almost ’virginal’, white outfit.
The car was rolled out as part of the opening of the "new" Silverstone circuit in the UK where in addition to wowing the people with its new garb, the white One-77 also showed off its monstrous capabilities out on track.
Even if not officially confirmed, there’s a very big chance for the Aston Martin One-77 supercar to also get a Volante version (like most of the Aston Martin models). This rendering, created by a self-proclaimed auto-manipulator, gives us a taste of what a convertible one-77 could look like. And like its coupe, it will be a limited edition priced at more than $1.5 million.
The One-77 coupe is powered by a 6.0-liter V12 engine (same as the DBS, DB9 and new V12 Vantage) that delivers 700 hp. With a projected weight of 1,500kg, the One-77 should be very quick (Aston predicts a 0-60 time of 3.5 seconds). Aston also says the engine will be able to pull the car to a top speed beyond 200 mph.
Let’s just hope we will get a chance to soar in a one-77 Volante soon. After all, volante does mean flying and we can’t wait to test this claim.
For most of us, the closest sniff we can ever have of the new Aston Martin One-77 will be in one of those high-end glossy car magazines. Maybe we can catch a video here or there of the One-77 in action.
Things like this already makes our day because we know that we have neither the resources nor wherewithal to even come a mile of driving one home. So, as you can expect, this new video released by Aston Martin showing the ultra-exclusive super car testing on a race track brings us much joy because it’s about as close as we can get to watch one in action. Enjoy!
OK, there’s unfair, and then there’s totally unfair. We know that the Aston Martin One-77 is limited to only 77 units, so, obviously, production is limited, to say the least. But here’s the really outrageous part. An Iranian shiek recently placed orders to buy 10 units of the One-77. That’s right! 10! That’s like 13% of all that’s ever going to be made. Not that we had any chance of throwing away seven digits of money but still. What makes this even more unbelievable is that the buyer apparently bought the cars for his "family."
When the customer made his demand (10 cars delivered by September), you can imagine skepticism from the guys from Aston Martin who said that the whole transaction might be impossible. Undaunted, the beyond wealthy buyer wrote a cheque for $17,000,000, which obviously, was enough moolah to change Aston Martin’s mind. As a refresher an One-77 costs $1.4 million.
Oh, and apparently, there’s more. There is another guy who asked for two One-77s: one to drive and one to hang on the wall as a piece of art.
Amidst all the hoopla surrounding the release of other supercars recently – among them the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, the Ferrari 458 Italia, and the Lexus LF-A – one soon-to-be-released limited run supercar has been inexplicably left in the backburner.
The Aston Martin One-77 recently went on a test run to gauge the top speed of the car and the results have been nothing short of jaw-dropping. The One-77 supercar recorded a speed of 220.007 mph, which if you’re keeping track, is the fastest any car Aston Martin has ever produced.
The previous record-holder was the Aston Martin Vanquish with a time of just a shade over 200 mph, which, needless to say the One-77 easily vanquished, no pun intended.
After its US unveiling at Pebble Beach last week, Aston Martin’s new flagship supercar has been making the headlines with its overall package, which is mind-blowing, to say the least. Even for the stratospheric standards given to supercars, the One-77 is being hailed as head and shoulders above the rest. It’s 7.3-liter V-12 engine, which is capable of churning up more than 700 horsepower and a top speed of well over 200 mph, as well as a 0-60 mph time of 3.9 seconds.
If justifying the One-77 as the car every man wishes to be behind the wheel of, we came across this video of the One-77 in action. You may have to wait to get to the good part, but believe us, it’s all worth it.
When Aston Martin unveiled its $2 million supercar, the One-77, in Europe a few months ago, American fans of the British carmaker have waited with baited breath for the One-77 to make its first official appearance on US soil.
That day has finally come after Aston Martin pulled the covers out of its latest supercar at the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Noteworthy for its jaw-dropping performance - even for supercar standards - the One-77 boasts of 7.3-liter V-12 engine, capable of churning up more than 700 horsepower, a top speed of well over 200 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 3.9 seconds.
To justify the car’s stratospheric price tag, Aston Martin spared no expense in fine-tuning every detail in the car, including carbon ceramic wheels, LED headlights, and a white leather interior with personalized stitching of the two-seat cabin. There’s only one other car that has approached a $2 million fetching price: the Bugatti Veyron. The Aston Martin One-77 is looking to join that ultra-exclusive list as it goes country hopping in anticipation of the car’s official release sometime down the road.
For now, the sight of the One-77 in the flesh should suffice, especially for Americans who have waited months to catch a glimpse of the ‘next big thing’ of supercars up close and personal.
There is no better opportunity to show off a high performance super car than on a Grand Prix Weekend and Aston Martin being no fools took full advantage of the German round of the Formula One calendar to promote the first production One-77 and the company’s new Nurburgring boutique.
Priced at $1.4 million, the One-77 is limited to 77 units, all of them being already sold out. What those owners are buyin is a 6.0 Liter V12 engine that makes 700 HP and weighs in at only 1,500 kilograms, that is a scant 3,300 pounds, nothing for a V12 powered speed machine. Aston Martin will not confirm any performance data as of yet, but they have hinted that the carbon fiber bodied One-77 should go from 0 to 60 seconds in under 35 seconds and will have a top speed well in excess of 200 MPH.
Aston Martin’s One-77 is pretty much a shoe-in for the 2009 car of the year. With its 6.0 Liter V12, the same power plant as the DBS, DB9 and new V12 Vantage. With a peak output of 700 HP and a projected curb weight of 3,300 pounds, the One-77 should be blisteringly quick, the now Prodrive owned manufacturer predicts a 0 to 60 MPH time of around 3.5 seconds and a top speed in excess of 200 MPH.
The One-77 will indeed be true super car from the English coach builders, but until it does go on sale we will just have to settle for ogling it in moving pictures. Our friends at the U.K. based, Autocar, had a chance to speak with Aston Martin’s CEO Dr. Ulrich Bez about the upcoming One-77. Enjoy!
