Aston Martin’s One-77 is without question the world’s most exclusive production car, and is being readied for production.
Powered by a bespoke 7.3-litre V12 engine, which has been certified at 750bhp and 750Nm of torque, it has claimed the title of the world’s most powerful naturally aspirated production engine for a road car.
As the ultimate expression of the famed Aston Martin marque, the One-77 is a both a complex and an extremely difficult project to undertake.
Best described by Aston’s CEO Dr Ulrich Bez, who says the task is “like building seventy-seven one-offs”, as each car is utterly hand built.
The One-77 has been put through an extensive test programme over the last nine months, including extreme hot and cold climate work, as well as a sign-off at Nurburgring’s Nordschliefe, the world’s most demanding race circuit.
The first customer deliveries will commence in early 2011.
