The wraps have come off the ultimate Aston Martin. This stunning machine is an all-new supercar from the famous British firm that will go on sale late next year, taking the company into uncharted territory carrying a £1.2million price tag and power from a 7.0-litre V12 engine.
More expensive than the Bugatti Veyron, the newcomer will be limited to a production run of just 77 cars – hence its current codename, One-77. A real bolt from the blue, Aston has managed to keep the entire project under wraps until now. It will be inviting a select group of customers to see a finished model before the end of the year.
Details are scarce but the One-77 will be powered by a 7.0-litre V12 – boasting around 650bhp – get a handcrafted aluminium body and a carbonfibre chassis. As a result it is likely to do 0-60mph in 3.5 seconds and have a top speed to 220mph. Aston says potential owners will be able to personalise virtually every aspect of the car.
