Aston Martin reveals the One-77 for the first time in Geneva

When Aston Martin decided it would create its own supercar, One-77, we all went crazy to know what the Gaydon-based company would come up with. We have seen renderings and they were good. We have seen the prototype and it was also good. We have seen technical specs and they were good as well. The price, over 1 million pounds, was good... for Aston Martin. But the best part of it all was the real car, presented at Geneva Motor Show. What a gorgeous piece of engineering...

One-77 will only be produced in limited numbers, or else, the 77 its own name mentions. It will be powered by a tweaked V12 engine, the same one used by DBS, but increased to 7.3 litres instead of 6 litres. Cosworth has given Aston Martin a help and the V12 is 25% lighter than the original engine. It can also produce over 700 bhp, what will allow the car to surpass 360 km/h and to go from 0 to 100 km/h in about 3.5 s. All this in a vehicle that weights 1,500 kg and is sophisticated as any other Aston. We can't wait to see it reach the streets.
