Aston Martin One-77 Research

The Car Connection Aston Martin One-77 Overview

With just 77 examples in existence, the Aston Martin One-77 is one of the most exclusive cars in the world. From its carbon monocoque chassis to its 750-horsepower V-12 engine to its stunning, cutting-edge design, the One-77 is also the ultimate expression of Aston Martin’s technical and stylistic capabilities.

Long and low with a mix of crisp angles and sweeping curves, the One-77’s look is unique from every angle. At the same time the proportions and features distill the essence of Aston Martin into its two-door supercar form.

The One-77’s cabin is just as advanced and exotic as its exterior. A raised center stack separates the driver and passenger, hosting the key cabin controls and other vehicle functions. In front o the driver, a focused pod delivers the key instrumental data needed to make the most of the One-77’s immense capabilities.

And immense they are, indeed. The 750-horsepower engine is a front-mid-mounted 7.3-liter V-12 unit, and it propels the car to 62 mpg in under 3.7 seconds; top speed is over 220 mph. A six-speed automated manual sequential gearbox is rear-mid-mounted for better weight balance, and controlled via an electro-hydraulic shift system. A magnesium alloy torque tube with a carbon fiber drive shaft transmits the power through a limited-slip differential to the rear wheels.

Twenty-inch wheels wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires (255/35 front and 335/30 rear) provide the grip as well as a great deal of style. Stopping power comes from a set of 398-mm front and 360-mm rear carbon ceramic disc brakes, six pistons grabbing the front and four pistons for the rear. Despite the exotic supercar status, the One-77 also comes with the safety measures you’d expect in a family sedan, including dynamic stability control, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution, traction control, and emergency brake assist.

For maximum handling and precision, the suspension is double wishbone front and rear, with advanced anti-dive/anti-squat geometry, adjustable dampers, and electronically adjustable ride height and suspension controls.

The two-seat, two-door configuration leaves a lot of practicality behind, but then, so does a nearly $2 million price tag. What the One-77 lacks in universal appropriateness for the situation, it makes up for with universal attractiveness in any location.

Aston Martin’s One-77 supercar was launched to the world at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este at Lake Como, Italy in 2009, and despite its exclusive 77-unit production run, it took until April, 2012 for the last example to find an owner.
