Aston Martin one-77: Overview


The two-door, two-seat flagship sports car known as the Aston Martin One-77 is produced by the British automaker Aston Martin. The vehicle made its debut at the 2008 Paris Motor Event, albeit for the majority of the show it was concealed by a "Savile Row fitted skirt." The 2009 Geneva Motor Show was fully unveiled, and deliveries started in 2011.


Although multiple development cars were created for engineering, testing, and marketing, the One-77 was only produced in 77 units. The exact number of cars in existence is 78 because of one of the development cars, VIN #10711, which was shipped back to Aston Martin for a thorough refurbishment and is now owned under NHTSA Show and Display registration in the United States. One-77, the name of the car's development, was sold for GB£1,150,000. One of the 77 vehicles, that was involved in a collision in Hong Kong in May 2012, was initially written off but has now been completely reconstructed.


Aston Martin one-77: Specifications


Numerous facts regarding the One-77 were made public before its introduction at the Paris Motor Show[8], but the exact specs weren't made public in their entirety until the 2009 Geneva Motor Show.


The One-77 is equipped with a 7.3 L; 446.2 cu in (7,312 ccs) DOHC 4 valves per cylinder V12 engine with Variable Valve Timing, rated at 559 kW (760 PS; 750 horsepower) at 7,500 rpm and 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) of torque at 5,000 rpm. It also boasts a handcrafted aluminum body. When the first vehicle was delivered, Aston Martin proclaimed the engine to be the most potent production naturally aspirated engine in the world.


The vehicle has a height-adjustable pushrod suspension and dynamic stability control in addition to a 6-speed automatic manual transmission from Graziano Transmission. The One-77 has Carbon Ceramic Matrix brakes and Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires (255/35 ZR20 front, 335/30 ZR20 rear).


Although real testing conducted in December 2009 revealed a high speed of 354.067 km/h (220.007 mph), the top speed was expected to be 350 km/h (220 mph), with an acceleration time of roughly 3.5 seconds from 0 to 97 km/h (60 mph).


Canadian company Multimatic was hired to design and create the carbon fiber chassis and suspension system. Although 1,500 kilograms (3,307 lb) was the predicted weight, the production model weights 1,630 kg (3,594 lb).


Aston Martin one-77: Laurels


The Concorso d'Eleganza Design Award for Concept Cars and Prototypes, the GOOD DESIGN award from the Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design in North America, and the "Best Design" award from the UK motoring magazine Auto Express, among many others, have all been given to the Aston Martin One-77.
