Article by Christian A., on September 21, 2010

According to the latest reports, it appears that the new Aston Martin One-77 supercar will be powered by the world’s most powerful normally aspirated production engine. Set to hit the dealerships early next year, the new Aston Martin One-77 will be manufactured in a very limited edition of just 77 units, each priced at over $1.5 million.

Regarding the engine, the new supercar from the British manufacturer will carry a 7.3-liter V12 engine capable to deliver an impressive 750 hp and 553lb ft or 745 Nm of torque.

This engine will be mated to a 6-speed automated manual transmission with Auto Shift Manual/Select Shift Manual (ASM/SSM) electro hydraulic control system. The car is expected to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 3.0 seconds and will have a top speed in excess of 320 km/h or 200 mph.

Regarding safety, the new One-77 will be fitted with Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and traction control systems, but also with a Carbon Ceramic Matrix braking system.

Furthermore, the new two door sports coupe will carry a carbon fibre monocoque body structure, hand crafted aluminum exterior body panels, active aerodynamics with deployable rear spoiler and a total weight of 1500 kg.

Dr. Ulrich Bez, Chief Executive of Aston Martin said: “The One-77 is approaching a production reality and of course, there is considerable excitement in the project. Now the next steps are all about details and refinement to complete the composition. I know the final car will demonstrate what the Aston Martin team is capable of.
