Aston Martin presented their One-77 chassis no.1 throughout the Geneva Motor Show. The One-77’s structural core is a lightweight and rigid carbon fibre monocoque conceived and designed at Aston Martin’s HQ. It comes with a potent 7.3-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine.
The One-77’s power unit is an engine fitted to the DBS, DB9 and new V12 Vantage models. Wearing Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres (255/35 ZR20 front, 335/30 ZR20 rear) developed specifically for the One-77, all 700+bhp is transmitted to the road through the rear wheels via a newly developed six-speed gearbox. Controlled via column-mounted paddles behind the steering wheel, this robotised sequential manual is a new generation of Aston Martin’s familiar transmission.
The dampers fited to the new ‘Aston’ are fully adjustable and feature advanced Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve (DSSV) technology; a clearly new road car application. The weight of the One-77 is 1,500 kg. Top speed is in excess of 200 mph, with a 0-60 mph time in approximately 3.5 sec.
Nice picture of the carbon frame (even though it’s making the car stratospherically expensive). Anyway it looks a bit “on steroid” which is not very astonish, so I’ll stick to the DBS.
