5 March 2010

Official video of the Aston Martin One-77 supercar in action has been released.

See the Aston Martin One-77 supercar video

The 7.3-litre V12-powered Aston Martin One-77 has been undergoing intensive development ahead of the first deliveries of the car to customers in the summer.

The record for fastest road-going Aston is currently held by the Vanquish, which had a top speed of slightly over 200mph. The £1.2 million One-77 has recorded 220.007mph in dry yet windy conditions and Aston expects it to be able to go even faster in improved conditions.

Just 77 examples of the two-seater One-77 will be sold, with buyers required to make a £200,000 deposit to secure one. Features include a carbonfibre monocoque chassis and active aerodynamics.

Aston describes the car as being the ultimate expression of what it stands for, combing modern technology, craftsmanship and exclusivity.

"Aston describes the car as being the ultimate expression of what it stands for, combing modern technology, craftsmanship and exclusivity." "Exclusivity" eh? So are we to assume that what appear to be Ford (Focus?) parts-bin column stalks will not be on the production cars? Low-rent switchgear aside, IMHO it does look stunning, though, let's hope that the One-77's 'bite' matches its 'bark'.

As if it's going to have switchgear from a Focus...This isn't the 1990s era Aston Martin we are talking about. If I'm wrong I'll happily eat my own underpants.

Agree it looks stunning. Be interesting to see it in a proper colour when it's finished.

A car designed for one reason, and one reason only, to relieve Aston's customers of an obscene amount of cash. Cynical.

Only guessing but look like the dash and switch-gear have been dropped in for the mule since they are existing working parts. Generally find most development vehicles have prototypes of the main components which are topped off with bits cobbled together from existing production.

FR3000, I agree with you. Not sure how you managed to paste the quote with me saying that, as it wasn't actually me who said it! It was the first guy who posted.

Exactly, its clearly one77 bodyshell with fronts lights and interior dropped in from other cars.

I work at Gaydon and have been very fortunate to have heard this car testing on the track there - it sounds awesome, even from inside another building!!

All of Aston's current range has the same stalks, albeit dressed with aluminium (or stainless steel?) 'endcaps'.

    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
