Aston Martin One-77 is powered by a 7.3L naturally aspirating V12 petrol engine that could churn out 750 bhp with a peak torque of 750 Nm. The engine is centrally mounted on the front side under the hood. The vehicle's rear wheels are powered through a Magnesium alloy torque tube along with a carbon fiber propeller shaft while the front wheels are driven. Designed with 4 valves per cylinder, Alloy Quad Over-Head Camshaft system commands the inlet and exhaust ports. The coupe's incredible engine is prescribed to operate in a compression ratio of 10.9:1. Astonishingly, One-77 could accelerate from 0 to 100 km/hr within 3.7 seconds rising to a top speed of 354 km/hr. A six speed automated manual gearbox is mounted on the rear segment.
To mention, Aston Martin One-77 was first showcased at the Paris Motor Show in 2008, while the complete specification details were released at the Geneva Motor Show in 2009. The handcrafted luxury model embraces contemporary technologies and sophistication, especially in its interiors. Essential attributes like air-conditioning, CD player, leather upholstery, central locking, power assisted windows & mirrors and electrically adjustable seats are customary in One-77. Additional sophisticated features include automatic vipers, automatic headlamps, tinted glass, dashboard integrated DVD system and dual-zone climatic control that enhances the driving pleasure.
Regarding the safety features, Aston Martin One-77 is packed with newfangled features that are purely exceptional. Twelve airbags are enclosed inside the vehicle's interiors to save people from hitting the immediate structures, due to rapid deceleration. Its braking system includes ventilated carbon ceramic disc brakes, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) and Traction control. With its precise braking technology, this aggressive coupe thrills the drivers with anticipated accuracy.
The vigorous Aston Martin One-77 possesses a bold and dynamic design that stand apart from the other contemporary cars. Designed to accommodate two adults including the driver, the two-door coupe is handcrafted with some of the phenomenal technologies. The painstaking process involved 27 pairs of passionate hands that worked for more than 2700 hours. Aluminum body panels are fitted around the high-strength and lightweight carbon fiber moncoque construction.
The vehicle's popping rear spoiler proclaims its brilliant aerodynamics. When the coupe touches a cruising speed of about 100 km/hr, its rear spoiler deploys above the deck and provides sufficient down-force to sustain the rear wheels in contact with the ground, thereby eliminates the affirmative lift created due to high speeds. Smaller side-view mirrors with thin stems are positioned away from the body to brace attached flow of airstream past it. The use of lightweight materials have enabled the manufacturers to constraint the weight of the vehicle to about 1500 kilograms.
Aston Martin One-77's broader radiator grille deserves a special mention here. Its rectangular vane design lets in more air while the splitters on the sides support them. Bi-xenon headlamps along with side lights and indicator lamps form the coupe's unparalleled lighting system. Vertically designed day-time running LED lights add elegance to the integrated system. The coupe's sleek design and smaller frontal area boost its aerodynamics. The interconnected taillights on the rear side professes one of the One-77's distinct design quotients.
The inclusion of trip computer, automatic temperature control, LED map-reading touch sensitive lights, glass ECU and switches add comfort and convenience to the passenger cabin. High design of the center console separates the driver's cockpit from the other passenger seat. Leather trimmed steering wheel creates a sporty feel, right from the initial touch. Leather-clad upholstery enchants the vehicle's interior ambiance, in addition to its smooth impressions.
Most of the exotic features of One-77 are available in the standard package itself. Apart from them, 7 or 10 spoke finish for the 20-inch forged alloy wheels and front & rear parking cameras are the additional comprehensible accessories.
