The Aston Martin One-77 is a supercar by Aston Martin. It first appeared at the 2008 Paris Motor Show, although the car remained mostly covered by a “Savile Row tailored skirt” throughout the show, before being fully revealed at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. It will have a limited run of 77 units with delivery starting in October 2009.
Prior to the One-77’s Paris Motor Show debut, the website 925.nl had leaked various details about the car, but official specifications were not fully revealed until the 2009 Geneva Auto Show. The One-77 will feature a full carbon fibre monocoque chassis, a handcrafted aluminium body, and a 7.3 litre V12 engine with over 700 hp (520 kW).
The engine will be naturally aspirated, and the car will have a strengthened version of the DB9’s 6-speed automated manual transmission and height-adjustable pushrod suspension (inspired by DTM racers) coupled with dynamic stability control.
It will feature Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres (255/35 ZR20 front, 335/30 ZR20 rear) and Carbon Ceramic Matrix brakes. Top speed is estimated to be over 200 mph (320 km/h), with a 0-60 mph time in approximately 3.5 seconds. The projected weight is 1,500 kg (3,307 lb).
Due to the lack of details from Aston Martin, many automotive publications have speculated on the final pricing of the car. While estimates vary, all expect the price to easily run in the millions.
According to the website 925.nl, the One-77 will cost approximately £1,050,000. However, the Australian newspaper, The Courier-Mail, expects it to be priced at around AU$2.6 million.
According to the British magazine, Top Gear, the car’s price will be £1,200,000, while the American magazine, Robb Report, expects it to be priced at US$1,700,000.
