This ultimate Aston Martin will go on sale later next year at an impressive price of £1 million (around $1.9 million). Who said Veyron is expensive? For that kind of money owners get to customize each the car to their individual tastes, and they also get to know that they are part of a very exclusive club of owners. Production will be limited to only 77 units (from where comes the name).

The Aston Martin One-77 is powered by a 7.0-liter V12 engine and will get a handcrafted aluminum body and a carbon fiber chassis. As a result it is likely to do 0-60mph in 3.5 seconds and have a top speed in excess of 200mph.

The pads will be enough. If you want to do the rotors, just go to the local garage and pick up a couple of used ones from a Ford V8 or something like that. The rotors in rear wheel V8s are quite strong.
It would be better to get pad rotors at the back since I assume that particular model has brake shoes rather than pads?

And if you can, try to get a new set of brake tubing, the ones that are connected to the brake pistons and screwed to the main pipe on the car body. They tend to wear out rather quickly (compared to the back) and let the oil leak.Good news is, you can get them for a couple of bucks.

in the process... working on getting a set of brembo most likely but the price tag on that is a little discouraging. but dont worry i’m not driving it with that kinda power with the stock brakes. that’d be really intelligent :/ but i plan on it. whats your opinion on only upgrading pads vs the rotors calipers and the pads... will the rotors and calipers make that big of a difference on such a light car?

And please tell me you have upgraded the brakes.

i have it set at 7psi of boost the kit said that’d output around 230hp without an intercooler. i’ve considered swapping the pistons but it seems like alot of work since idk how much track racing i’ll be doing anyways. injectors was one of the things i was gonna do next. then suspension tuning i guess but the car already handles great so idk... but ya no rough rodes around here... just flat open highways for the most part in texas. i asked around and was told the iron block in the 240 could handle a pretty good amount of power without blowing a cylinder head or anything but i still wanna do some more research b4 i put too much boost on it

Getting the cam timing done by professionals would be most advisable. With the extra horsepower provided by the Turbo, it would be wiser to install a better set of injectors, otherwise the engine will starve. The intake will improve the breathing and increase the output by a decent amount(20-30hp), so it would be better to that before you get the car dynoed.

As for the suspension, try and install adjustable shocks with damper and spring controls. Three way would do fine without costing that much more. If you don’t have to drive on bad roads, you can have it lowered, giving you better handling, not to mention better looks with the bodykit.

How much hp does the turbo provide and how much boost?

And can the engine handle the extra hp or did you change the pistons and rings?

goin good got wheels tires and the intercooler and turbo installed... garret turbo kit for the ka24de s14 but changed the piping to fit the s13 and an hks intercooler. still gotta get it dyno’d and working on body kit spoiler paint and hood and such... then for some suspension tuning and i’ll probably upgrade the fuel injectors and put a cold air intake in later...

also whats you’re opinion on trying to put some type of variable valve timing?

Which reminds me, hows the 240SX coming along.

AK47  (1024) posted on 08.11.2008

Of course, with a Veyron, we will have to learn to open the doors first, otherwise we will end up getting embaressed like Tom Cruise.

AK47  (233) posted on 08.11.2008

oh of course we have to be diverse with out 1.9 million dollar car collection. whats funny is the veyron still costs more than the rest of our collection all put togethter but i’d take the others over it too lol. i’d rather have quantity and quality and actually be able to drive more than a few miles b4 running out of gas lol

AK47  (1024) posted on 08.10.2008

In other words we can have our own car collection for that much. And while we are at that, I’ll take the new Lexus LF-A.

Maybe, I’ll get the EVO X as well....you know, just to be diverse.

AK47  (233) posted on 08.9.2008

wait no... more like a tenth.... you could put 100k under the hood of your z have enough left over to buy a veyron, gtr, nsx and the new ZR-1 lol

ill go that route oh and a regular db-9 too

AK47  (233) posted on 08.9.2008

true that lol but i still would have to buy something with some handling to it. this car looks great but in my opinion the performance for the money isn’t so impressive... best bang for the buck i’ve seen is the new gtr or maybe the nsx once it comes out.

but a tuned 350z could outperform this thing at a quarter of the cost

AK47  (1024) posted on 08.8.2008

But then....., if we were filthy rich we wouldn’t wouldn’t have paid attention to practicality.

AK47  (1024) posted on 08.8.2008

jtm, you are right but despite the fact that these people have money, they don’t have our practical brains.

AK47  (520) posted on 08.8.2008

that’s an expensive Aston, i hope the performance and confort will be great!

AK47  (233) posted on 08.8.2008

i’d buy a regular aston martin db9 for the looks and to pick up some ladies and keep the change for something with better performance.

AK47  (1024) posted on 08.8.2008

If I had the money...... I wouldn’t buy one.

If this is part of "Project Alligator" then does that mean Mercedes is developing a 7.0 liter engine?
