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.
