The Aston Martin One-77 has been a continued time coming. The super-expensive British supercar has been teased and teased, Aston alike accepting gone so far as assuming the car's anatomy on the auto appearance circuit, abandoned abrogation it beneath a bolt throughout the show. Aston Martin set up a committed website for the best able assembly Aston Martin ever, which can still be begin at www.one-77.com. In March we got One-77 abstruse specs and pre-production achievement numbers. Now the cat is assuredly out of the bag, with Aston's assuming of the final One-77 assembly car architecture at the Italian Concorso D’Eleganza Villa D’Este design-centric autoshow.
Carrying a abject amount of a air-conditioned EU 1 actor and headed for final assembly in a bound run of abandoned 77 units, the One-77 is assuredly targeted at the blazon of attention-seeking car chump apparently not too afflicted by the all-around bread-and-butter recession currently arresting the auto industry as a whole.
Aston Martin's abounding architecture beef was directed against the One-77's development, actuality the aboriginal absolutely all-new Aston archetypal in years. The affidavit is in the pudding, as the Aston Martin One-77 assembly archetypal aloof won one of the industry's best coveted architecture awards, the Concorso d’Eleganza Architecture Award for Concept Cars and Prototypes at Como Lake, Italy.
Let's allocution numbers. The One-77 carries a 6.0 liter V12 deeply based on the powerplants acclimated in the V12 Vanquish and newer V12 Vantage, but reengineered absolutely for this appliance to aftermath added than 700 horsepower. Aston Martin says the One-77 was developed with DTM alternation chase cars in mind, and if the new supercar proves as able on the alley as it looks on paper, those 77 examples should be airtight up absolute quick.
All that ability is advance aloft the poor rear auto through a new 6 acceleration accurate consecutive chiral assemblage Aston promises will crawl bottomward through the blow of its artefact line. The arresting 20 inch wheels, accustomed huge Pirellis 335mm beyond out back, blanket new Carbon Ceramic Matrix anchor technology which promises added cooling by transmitting beneath active activity as calefaction through the anchor aqueous and system.
With a promised barrier weight of about 1500kg, the One-77 will do the 0-60 run in beneath than 3.5 seconds, with a top acceleration in balance of 200 mph. Due to the car's rarity, amount and beauty, your boilerplate Aston Martin One-77 buyer will apparently never accept abundant alley to hit 150 let abandoned 200 mph or a chase track. In an auto industry award 100-year-old companies aback activity bankrupt, is the One-77 at all relevant?
Official Aston Martin columnist abstracts allege of "extraordinary ability and money-no-object charge to quality". It is a safe bet Aston will lose money on this car, but if the British marque can financially acclimate this storm and abide to accomplish absolutely aberrant sports and GT cars, the absolute winners are the flush enthusiast community. Three columnist releases chase account every aspect of the One-77 experience.
