One-77 closes on new Aston Martin record

WHAT A STUNNER! Aston Martin’s One-77 supercarAston Martin’s One-77 supercar has moved closer to setting a record for the British brand during high-speed testing by comfortably exceeding 320km/h.

We first told you about the car back in August, 2008.

The One-77 is undergoing stringent development ahead of its 2010 launch with high-speed testing at a secret proving ground in southern Europe. It recorded a best of 354.86km/h, in dry but windy conditions, during a series of test runs.
The car has a new 7.3-litre, V12 Aston Martin engine and, the automaker says, has been "engineered to deliver breathtaking levels of power and performance".

It's described as "a dramatically styled two-door, two-seat sports coupe," and Aston Martin says it has been based on an innovative carbon-fibre monococque body with new active aerodynamic technology.

The One-77 is, Aston Martin says, "the ultimate expression of what we stands for and will combine modern technology and design with craftsmanship and ultimate exclusivity".

It will, the company says, be "the world’s most desirable automotive art form".

As its name suggests, production will be limited to of 77 numbered units. Deliveries should start in mid-2010.
