New Aston Martin One-77
According to the leaked sales doc, which appeared on 925.nl, the One-77 will feature a 7.3L V12 engine with ‘more’ than 700hp (522kW) and 533lb-ft (750Nm) of torque. The first official teaser said the car would feature a 7.0L V12 engine. The drivetrain is also said to feature dry-sump lubrication and a rear-mounted six-speed automated manual transmission. Other leaked details include both left and right-hand-drive availability, a carbon-fiber monocoque body structure with hand crafted aluminum panels, active aerodynamics, and a kerb weight around the 1,500kg mark. Expect to see 0-60mph (96km/h) runs of 3.5 seconds and a top speed in excess of 200mph (320km/h). Since the car is still more than a year away from being launched, some of the final specs could change before then but until Aston confirms the leaked details they will have to remain purely speculation. Speaking with previously with AutoExpress, a spokesman for Aston Martin explained that an extensive customization program will ensure that no two models are the same. Buyers will be able to customize every single part of the car, from the gearbox to the interior trim elements. Even the seats will be tailored to fit the driver and passenger’s individual curves. The spokesman also confirmed that a concept version will be shown to a select group of customers by the end of the year, with the finished version ready by the end of next year.
