Aston Martin revealed new information and images of the One-77 exclusive supercar. It will be powered by naturally aspired front mid-mounted 7.3 liter V12 engine that delivers over 700 hp and a peak torque of 750Nm (553 ft lbs). The engine is mated to a 6 speed ASM/SSM Automated Manual Transmission.
Since we’re calling it a supercar, speed is always a priority. To help with this, the chassis will be made from lightweight carbon fiber and and all panels should be made from aluminum. The car’s plans also call for a deployable rear spoiler, likely in the same fashion as the Porsche 911 or Mercedes SLR .
As the name suggests, production is limited to a maximum of 77 individually numbered units. If you want one, get your financial manager on the phone now (if he’ll still take your call) — deliveries are anticipated to
begin in the fourth quarter of 2009.
Full specifications after the jump.
