Designed as a halo car, the One-77 is currently the fastest road car made by Aston Martin due to being capable of reaching 220 mph (354 km/h) as top speed. It also introduced other automotive superlatives such as one of the world's most powerful naturally aspirated engines and a monocoque chassis made in carbon fiber.
The One-77 was produced until 2012 in a limited production run of 77 cars, giving part of the name of the One-77. However, in May 2012, one of the 77 cars was wrecked in Shenzhen, China, reducing the total number to 76.
Are you elite enough to drive a One -77? [sic] More importantly can you handle its vivacious 7.3 liter 12 cylinder power? It is the most powerful of any naturally aspirated production engine. With its handcrafted aluminum body and carbon fiber monocoque, and that kind of gusto, it’s no wonder it even exceeded Aston-Martin’s top speed expectations.
It only takes a glance at the One-77 to see that each curve, crease, and air intake has been sprinkled with superhero serum. Aston boss Ulrich Bez felt that the company needed a car that was completely unrestricted by convention, and so they unleashed the One-77 to show what is possible when no expense is spared. Pop the hand-formed aluminum hood and the investment is obvious, as the 7.3-liter V12, draped with polished aluminum and bare carbon fiber, is a work of art. Fire it up and few cars can match the burbling howl of 750 hand-crafted British ponies. It’s sculpture sitting still, but don’t park it in a museum; to show off the beauty and purpose of this special Aston, try firing up Photo Mode and get to know this just what makes this beauty so special.
This is the Aston Martin One-77. Compared to Vantage and Vanquish it is a rubbish name. And frankly, the car deserves better because it is the most powerful and most expensive Aston Martin of all time. At the front is the 7.3 litre V12 making 700 horsepower, which would be remarkable on its own. But it's even more amazing when you discover that this car weighs less than Aston's own V8 Vantage. They ran the One-77 prototype up to 220 miles an hour before the driver backed off. According to Aston, it could go even faster. Whether you want to is another matter: Firstly, because it costs 1.3 million pounds and it would be a shame to break it, and secondly, because, well, just look at it. The underneath of the One-77 is made of huge beautiful sheets of carbon fibre, copied from Aston Martin's Le Mans racers. And on top is a handbeaten aluminium skin made by the same 200 year old men who've been making Aston Martins since 1913. If only it had a better name.
The One-77 is based on a highly rigid carbon fibre monocoque chassis powered by a front mid-mounted 7.3 litre V12 engine with 750 hp (559 kW) and 553 ft·lb (750 N·m) of torque. Coupled with a six-speed paddle shift gearbox, the One-77 only needs 3.5 seconds to go from 0 - 60 mph (97 km/h) and 6.9 seconds for accelerating from 0 - 100 mph (161 km/h) all the way to a top speed of 211 mph (340 km/h), which is lower than its real-life top speed of 220 mph (354 km/h). However, in Forza Motorsport 7, this was finally changed to 221 mph (356 km/h).
The car's suspension design utilises technology derived from racing cars such as double wishbone suspension on both axles with pushrod actuated coil springs, adjustable dampers and hydraulic anti-roll bars.
The Forza series features the One-77 with a kerb weight of 3307 lb (1500 kg) although the latter was officially changed by Aston Martin to 3593 lb (1630 kg) upon its introduction.
