Aston Martin's $2 Million Super Car
Have $2 million to blow?; Act quickly enough, and you may be one of the lucky few to slip behind the wheel of the 2009 Aston Martin One-77.
Fear not; that nomenclature is merely a working title, helping to express just how limited this car’s production will be.; At the very most, only 77 examples will be lovingly crafted by Aston’s workers.
We’re told the One-77, which uses a carbon-fiber chassis, will utilize an all-aluminum body that’s completely hand crafted.; From the shadowy figure released by Aston’s PR office, the car looks somewhat similar to current Astons, albeit with a more muscular stature.
Like the rendering, much of the car’s details also lurk in the shadows.; Aston Martin says the One-77 will use a 7.0-liter V-12, which we hear may produce close to 600 hp.; Rumor has it the car will achieve a 0-62 mph time in four seconds and a top speed of over 200 mph – placing the One-77 squarely in super car territory.
Of course, the power and prestige comes at an expense – a price tag rumored to be over £1 million, which converts to somewhere around $1.9 million.; There’s no word on if the car will come stateside, but if you’re seriously hoping it does, you may want to hit the car’s website at www.one-of-77.com and start contacting Aston’s salespeople.
