And on the subject of Aston Martin.....

Quote
A teaser image and first details were released a couple of months ago of a new Aston Martin supercar that will be called, one-77. As the name suggests, it will be produced in a limited production run of just 77 units with the first deliveries towards the end of next year.

Further details and images have now been unearthed by Dutch site 925.nl which confirms the model will carry an astronomical price of £1,050,000 excluding taxes. The two-seater sports coupe will be available in either left or right hand drive.  It will boast an aluminium body with carbon fibre extrusions that will keep the overall weight of the car down to around 1500kg.

The naturally aspirated front-mid mounted engine will possess a displacement of 7.0 liters backed up with a total of 12 cylinders, power outage is reported to be in the region of 710hp and 750Nm(553lb-ft) of torque. It is mated to a 6 speed automated manual transmission that features an Auto Shift Manual/Select Shift Manual (ASM/SSM) electro-hydraulic control system.

Aston Martin will enhance the overall performance of the one-77 with a carbon ceramic braking system and a height adjustable suspension that will work in tandem with the dynamic stability control system.

$1,831,776 Aston Martin One-77

It's hard to think of a DB-9 or Vanquish as anything other than automotive perfection, so when the Brits in Gaydon say the One-77 is the embodiment of Aston Martin design, color us interested. The ultra-exclusive two-seat supercar seems to have it all: a 700 hp V12, carbon fiber chassis, aluminum body, and the ultimate in Aston design. The One-77 has an exclusive price tag of about £1,050,000 or $1,831,776 before taxes, too, and even the Paris Motor Show isn't a big enough venue to unveil the full design to the world.

Aston Martin is sure playing up the anticipation for the One-77, and even though there is absolutely no shot we'll ever get to drive one, we're taking the bait. Teasers and sneak peaks are all we're getting at this point, and with a full year before it goes on sale, we could be waiting a bit longer. Aston CEO Bez Ulrich and chief designer Mark Reichman sat down to discuss the One-77 with the cameras rolling, and the two key players on team Martin seem to be in love with this vehicle.

Have a read of what this reporter has to say.   :eek:

You know, I almost cried watching this video clip. I’m not saying the Aston Martin One-77 concept is a child, but have you ever listened to a father talking about his son, not to another man but to a woman, with those violins in the background setting the scene? It’s like that with Dr Ulrich Bez and Marek Reichman, CEO and Director of Design respectively regarding the One-77.

In this promotional video the two men wax lyrical about the car as a concept, its life as a piece of art that combines beauty with outstanding engineering. One-77 is a super car indeed; 7.0-litre, 700 bhp and only 77 will be made. Highly exclusive, only a small team of people work on this car, which allows for exceptional craftsmanship as well as a tighter reporting schematic than if they were mass-producing 3000 examples.

We are not counting on the One-77 breaking records at Nürburgring, “Aston Martin is not about figures…for us it’s more important what is beyond the figure..” Watch the video and decide if it really is the most beautiful Aston Martin ever conceptualised.

Aston Martin is pulling the cover off the new Aston Martin One-77 in Geneva. The first in a 77-unit limited edition will be on display throughout the entire auto show there.

"It had to combine high-technology with hand-built craftsmanship, and demonstrate the unique capabilities and passion of our designers, engineers and technical partners," said Aston CEO Dr. Ulrch Bez. That is a main reason why the car makes use of hand-rolled aluminum paneling, and why each is tuned by hand.

"Quite simply it had to be the ultimate expression of Aston Martin. As you can now see, we have achieved that goal in magnificent style."

Based on ideas seen in the racecars on the DTM race circuit, the One-77 has a carbon fiber monocoque that is as strong as it is lightweight. It has inboard double wishbone suspension "at each corner," to reduce unsprung weight. The cars take advantage of Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve damping, which the company claims is a first for a street car. The dampers are fully adjustable, even while they're still on the car. Suspension is tuned by hand by the engineers at A.M.

A street car needs serious power to even require such a suspension system. Aston did not short the One-77 in that department. Rumor had it that this car would get 600 hp, and have a 0-100km/h time of about four seconds. Well, the One-77 is even more powerful than that. It comes with a 7.3-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine that produces over 700 bhp. Unfortunately, final power, torque, acceleration, and speed ratings are not yet available. The engine was mounted 100mm lower than any other V12 Aston, thanks to the use of a dry-sump. The company says this helps keep the car's center of gravity low.

Engine manufacturer Cosworth helped Aston Martin adapt their 6.0-liter V12, currently seen on the V12 Vantage, DBS, and DB9. The engine specialist worked to cut 25% of the V12 unit's mass, despite the larger displacement and increase in power. All that power goes through a new six-speed gearbox on its way to the rear wheels. The driver makes gear selections via paddles behind the steering wheel. The next-gen Aston transmission is a "robotised sequential manual" that could find its way on other vehicles from the company.

Final testing still needs to be conducted on the vehicle. Once completed, Aston believes they will announce a top speed of over 200mph, a 0-60mph time of 3.5 seconds, and a weight of around 1,500 kg. The Aston Martin One-77 will stick around the Geneva Motor Show through March.

The gills at the front corners will take a bit of getting used to.

But that driver should be taken out back and shot...  what's with the hands on the steering wheel at 11 and 1?  :confused:
