The Aston Martin One-77 is a two-door coupe built 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. Prior to the Aston Martin One-77’s Paris Motor Show debut, various details about the car had been leaked, but official specifications were not fully revealed until the 2009 Geneva Motor Show.
The Aston Martin One-77 will feature a full carbon fiber monocoque chassis, a handcrafted aluminium body, and a naturally aspirated 7.3 liter V12 engine with 750 hp. Aston Martin claims that this will be the most powerful naturally aspirated production engine in the world when the car is delivered.
The Aston Martin One-77 will also use a strengthened version of the DB9’s 6-speed automated manual transmission and height-adjustable pushrod suspension coupled with dynamic stability control. It will feature Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyers and Carbon Ceramic Matrix brakes.
The top speed was estimated to be 200 mph but actual tests in December 2009 showed a figure of 220.007 mph, with a 0–60 mph time of approximately 3.5 seconds. The engineering and build source of the carbon chassis and suspension system is contracted to Multimatic of Canada. The Aston Martin One-77 projected weight is 1,500 kg.
