Aston Martin's 8th world wonder

2008-11-10 07:22
Aston Martin’s most expensive car yet, the One-77, is shaping up to be a peculiar combination of values hinging on the number seven.

First of all, the One-77 is set for a limited production of 77. Most cars are set to be reserved for the UK market, with a sprinkling for other EU member states and only six are destined for the ailing US market.

Power figures from the 7l V12 equates to 515kW (700hp), ensuring the One-77 (with a target production weight of only 1 500kg) should return stellar performance figures and a top speed the wrong side of 320km/h.

Objective performance car analysts might question the discrepancy between outright performance and a seven figure price tag (in Euros no less), but with a carbon-fibre chassis being mooted and incomparable styling presence, Aston Martin can price the One-77 as it likes.
