Default Aston Martin's At It Again - The One-77

Aston Martin has been quiet in terms of future models for some time now. However things are about to change; for the better. Aston Martinís new baby is called the One-77. Initially the name seems quite strange compared to Astonís other very well named cars (Vantage, Rapide, Vanquish) however the titles main purpose is to inform people that this car is a very limited edition. Thatís right only 77 of this stunning machine will be produced.
Though many official details about the car have not been released much can be extracted from the sketch Aston Martin has provided to the world. As stated in the picture the Ďhandcrafted bodyí of the new Aston will be made of aluminum that will be teamed up with a carbon-fibre chassis. However the carís party piece must be the engine. At the Ďheartí of the car is a 7.0-litre V12. Iíd say this engine should be good for a minimum of about 600 bhp and as a result the car will probably be able to crack 200 miles per hour without breaking a sweat. Also expecting anything other than a 0 to 60 mph time close to 3 seconds for this monster would be foolish. These mouth-watering statistics definitely make this car one to desire but at the same time expect the price to be a wallet-busting one. For the rich however it will be a small price to pay, I mean a Ďlimited editioní Aston Martin? What else could one possibly need in this life.

Update: It is said that the car will cost 1.3 Million Pounds, thats 300,000 more Pounds that a Veyron. However Aston Martin justifies this price by giving its clients a fair amont of participation in the development of thier car. Clients will be able to chose unique interior/exterior details including the seating arrangement (4-seater or 2-seater convertible). It seems this sales technic is working though as several of the cars have been booked, with a healthy population expected to arrive in the Middle East.

An exclusive Aston Martin! That too, just 77!
Is there anything more enticing and inviting?? :drool: :drool:

And if one is also possible to get involved in the development of the car, there'll be thousands who wants their hands on this beauty. As of now, I suspect all the 77s should be gone!

This car better be really really good for the price! Being an Aston, it'll definitely be good looking and the details will be crazy too, but the price is seriously a bit too much. And its got the typical Aston curves, something a bit more crazier in design would have been better.

Like every Aston Marin, this car looks great. But, £300,000 more than the Veyron? That's riduculous - even for a long time, die hard fan of Aston Martin like myself.
Remember, it's much slower and less powerful than the Bugatti.

77 is still a big number for a limited edition car which costs 1.3 million Pounds.

They should not make more than 25 of these.

Oh well, everything's reasonable when it comes to an Aston Martin I guess.

Now thats one heck of a collectors item, pure drool material. This will go down as far more desirable than a veryron.

That is one hell of a good looking car, have always been a Aston Martin fan, but if the price mentioned in the tread is right, then it's too over priced.

The million pound price tag on the Buggatti is just the MSRP. You can expect the actual price tag to be around 2 Million, since the Veyron was a one off and no more will be made.. In the same vein, the Aston will also be close to the aforementioned figure... Also the V12 might produce 700-800 bhps or more, like Koenigseg CCX.. Which produces a trite more power than the veyron from the V12 supplied by mercedes.

So the price might be an indicator as to how many bhps the Aston may produce

Default One-77 - Worlds most expensive car, by Aston Martin

Priced at 1.3mn euros, the first batch of cars is expected to be delivered to customers at the end of 2009.
Gaydon (Britain): Aston Martin has released scant details and sketches of its new super car codenamed One-77 that will sell for at least 1.3 million euros excluding tax ($1.95 million), making it the most expensive car on the market.
Each of the 77 limited edition Aston Martins will be tailored to the individual buyer and the engineers and designers will work out the exact specifications with the future owner.
The car's aluminium body will be handcrafted and the owner will even be able to choose their own exhaust note. The V12 engine has a top speed of 354 km/h accelerating from zero to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds, producing around 700 hp.
Aston Martin has identified around 500 potential customers, offering to bring a demonstration model to wherever the customer wishes to see it - either at a reclusive villa, luxury hotel or yacht club. The first cars are expected to be delivered to customers at the end of 2009.

If someone out there has the money, and still does not buy it, may that person go to hell.

Astons are not about speed or power. They're about style and panache!
Imagine driving up in an £ 890,000 veyron.....and then ingine driving up in a limited edition (1 of 77) £ 1.3 million Aston Martin!

Tell me, honestly, which car do you think would make more heads turn?


I rest my case.

As of now, the Bugatti will make it. Any doubts?


This Aston is a collector's item. There's no real need for a comparison of it with any other car. A person who wants to buy this one will have his eye set on this only. This is that kind of an exclusive car.

Making the heads turn, is not going to be easy with the Aston. Just because that only a pure fanatic will understand the specialities of this car. Anybody else is going to think of it as just another Aston Martin.

Hmm. Both deeply traditional names. Both were founded long before names like Ferrari and Jaguar were even thought of. Bugatti - 1909, Aston Martin - 1913.
Neither manufacturer catered to the mass market. Both manufacturers raced together at LeMans. At times, Aston made some of the most powerful cars in the world. So saying that Astons are not about power is not exactly correct.
Traditionally, both these manufacturers cater to the same clientele.
