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.
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!
The English super car builder Aston Martin has just released a new image gallery featuring their most exclusive creation ever. The Aston Martin One-77 is powered by a 6.0 Liter V12 making 700 HP, the same unit found in the DBS, DB9 and new V12 Vantage. With a curb weight of around 1,500 kg the One-77 should be very quick, Aston predicts a 0 to 60 MPH time of just 3.5 seconds. The automaker also projects a top speed beyond 200 MPH.
The Aston Martin One-77 is close to becoming a reality. We were able to see a full scale design model as well as a full chassis skeleton in Geneva. Now Aston has shown off a full working model last weekend at Concorso d’Eleganza in Italy. Aston was reward for all it’s hard work; it took home the Design Award for Concept Cars and Prototypes.
The One-77 is powered by Aston’s 6.0-liter V12 engine that delivers 700 hp in this application. It will make the 0 to 60 mph sprint in 3.5 seconds and will hit a top speed of 200 mph. It will be limited to only 77 units priced at £1 million each (about $1.47 at current rates.)
Aston Martin has revealed a new video highlighting why their exclusive One-77 supercar is so unique. According to Ian Minards, Aston Martin’s Director of Product Development the One-77 will off the driver something "like no other driving experience." After all this is the most expensive Aston Martin of all time.
Although we already knew elements like the inboard suspension, near 50/50 weight distribution and full carbon fiber structure, the whole leaked document is worth going through. It not only reveals the interior sketches, but also fills in the gaps on just about every other detail of the car. Everything from the Bang and Olufsen 1000 Watt stereo system to 3300 lbs curb weight (550 of which will be the Cosworth-tuned 700 hp 7.3-liter V12.)
As much as we like to see the One-77 on paper, we’re still hoping that our friends at Aston will let us take one of the 77 planed cars out for a spin. Priced at £1,000,000 each (about $1.4 million at today’s rates), we can’t see any reason why a few wouldn’t end up in the press fleet.

Aston Martin brought two mockups of the One-77 to Geneva. Between the full size styling model, and chassis and powertrain skeleton, we know have a pretty good idea of how the £1 million (about $1.4 at current rates) supercar will shape up.
The One-77 is powered by a 6.0-liter V12 engine (same from the DBS, DB9 and new V12 Vantage) that delivers 750 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.
The skeletal model showed off the full carbon fiber monocoque chassis, which is extremely lightweight and rigid. Like all Aston Martins, 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 furter increase the weight to the ideal center of the car.
Updated 11/15/2010: Aston martin has unveiled today a new promotional video of their coolest supercar ever: the One-77. The car is simply described as "an work of art" and we couldn’t agree more. Enjoy!
Rumors of its unavailability have been greatly exaggerated.
Not long after Aston Martin announced the very limited production supercar called One-77 , we got word that there were 100 orders for the car limited to 77 units . Yeah, well um, that’s not so much true (c’mon we’re not exact CNN here people.) Aston actually got 100 people who expressed interest in the car, but that doesn’t equal sales (just because you can write a letter to Danica Patrick, doesn’t mean she’ll date you.) So there are still a few cars left, and we’re still single.
We expect the One-77 to be powered by a 7.0-liter V12 engine that delivers over 700 hp and over 550 lb-ft. of torque. The 0 to 60 mph sprint will be made in 3.5 seconds, while top speed should go up to 200 mph. The full price of the car is about £1 million. Thanks to current rates in the dollar’s favor, it will make the car a steal at around $1.4 million.
It will be powered by naturally aspired 7.3-liter V12 engine that delivers over 700 hp and a peak torque of 750Nm (553 ft lbs). The powerplant will be mounted ahead of the driver, but behind the front axle, making this a mid-engined supercar.
Aston Martin revealed today the second teaser video of the One-77 supercar. Even if the company received 100 orders for the car, it will be limited to 77 units, each priced at approximately $1.9 million.
One-77 will be powered by a 7.0-liter V12 engine that delivers over 700 hp and over 550 lb-ft. of torque. The 0 to 60 mph sprint will be made in 3.5 seconds, while top speed should go up to 200 mph.
