Aston Martin One-77
The Aston Martin One-77 - an exclusive special edition car only for the super-rich...
There were only 77 (surprisingly) of these amazing vehicles produced and most of them have already been sold.
This powerful super sports car has a 6.0 litre V12 engine that goes from zero to sixty mph in under 3.5 seconds. The top speed for this magnificent car is in excess of 200 miles per hour. It is the fastest Aston Martin to date, and hence the most exclusive, at something in the region of £1.2 million (or more if you were one of the unlucky last few to place your order).
This powerful super performance car took over two years to be produced. The first one was recently delivered to its owner from Monaco. The original price tag for this exclusive car was around $1,825,000. Last November the price was increased by $235,000 for the seventeen remaining ones. Such a hefty tag means that it is excluded from any gap insurance cover - but I'm sure that that's of little concern when you've that much cash flying around anyway!
Aston Martin is offering the option to all of the customers who buy a One-77 of ordering an Aston Martin Cygnet to match. This little guy will be going into production in a couple of months' time. The Cygnet - based on Toyota's IQ - makes the perfect everyday car. Dubbed by the prestige motor company as the "luxurious solution to urban mobility", the Cygnet is apparently also the ideal car to haul around if you have a yacht. How handy!
The One-77 supercar has a full carbon fibre monocoque chassis and a handcrafted aluminum body. It has the unique Aston Martin grille but with more flair. They spared no expense when creating this masterpiece and even included LED headlamps and carbon ceramic wheels.
The interior is handcrafted and includes all the comfort amenities a person could ever want. The interior was designed using the minimalist approach. This means every item in this car has a purpose. The inside is definitely designed to create the ultimate environment to enjoy driving this powerful performance car.
This Aston Martin was specifically designed to be a corner handling machine. This was done by lowering the engine which helps keep the center of gravity as low as possible. It also has inboard suspension in both the front and rear.
The One-77 also has advanced Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve technology (what?) - that means the dampers are fully adjustable. The shock characteristics can be changed without actually having to change the shocks. Clever stuff.
The One-77 is a beautiful machine that has innovative technology inside a stunning body. Aston Martin has possibly created the most stunning and desirable vehicle on the market today.
