Aston Martinís One-77 supercar will be the firmís fastest ever production car having been clocked at more than 220mph in testing.

The 7.3-litre V12-powered Aston Martin One-77 has been undergoing intensive development at a southern European proving ground ahead of the first deliveries of the car to customers in the summer. Aston has also released the first pictures of the One-77 in action.

The record for fastest road-going Aston is currently held by the Vanquish, which had a top speed of slightly over 200mph. The £1.2 million One-77 has recorded 220.007mph in dry yet windy conditions and Aston expects it to be able to go even faster in improved conditions.

Just 77 examples of the two-seater One-77 will be sold, with buyers required to make a £200,000 deposit to secure one. Features include a carbonfibre monocoque chassis and active aerodynamics.

Aston describes the car as being the ultimate expression of what it stands for, combing modern technology, craftsmanship and exclusivity. Next year will be a busy one for Aston with new products going on sale in market areas it hasnít competed in before, including the four-door Rapide, the Toyota iQ-based Cygnet and the One-77 itself.

Report: 10 Aston Martin One-77 Supercars Sold to Single Buyer for $23 Million
Colum Wood

For most people in the world, getting hold of a very expensive and very limited edition Aston Martin One-77 supercar has its obstacles. The 1.7 million dollar price tag is a start. Then thereís the fact that Aston has said it will only built just 77 of the exotic beasts.

But proving that money most certainly talks, one individual has decided to purchase 10 (yes 10) One-77s. According to a report on TopSpeed, the Middle Eastern buyer purchased the vehicles for his family for a cost of $23 million. At the 1.7 million price tag, that leaves room for a several million dollar tip.

Like the McLaren MP4-12C or Lexus LFA, the One-77 is made using a carbon fiber monocoque to keep weight at an absolute minimum Ė just 3,300 lbs. Power comes from a 7.3-liter V12 making 750-hp. The carís top speed is rated at at least 220 mph.
