Aston Martin One-77 spotted at Genoa Airport, Italy

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Once again, our ‘international’ reporter Jack, from such stories as ‘Jack and the Captain’s Car’ and ‘Jack visits Museo Lamborghini and Museo Casa Enzo Ferrari in Modena, Italy’, has spotted another incredible car whilst on his travels around Italy.

Check out the Aston Martin One -77, worth a whopping £1.5 million ($2 million)

Source: caranddriver.com – The name is made clear when you learn that only 77 were produced, but that’s where this limited-edition road-going race car stops making sense. A carbon-fiber monocoque chassis, a superlight 7.3-litre V-12, and a hand-formed aluminium body put the price tag at almost $2 million.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_text_separator title=”The Ultimate Aston Martin”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

The most exclusive Aston Martin of the ‘Gaydon era’, One-77 was limited to 77 unique examples.

Tantalisingly, the first glimpse the world got of the One-77 hypercar was a maquette of the new car at the 2008 Paris Motor Show, three quarters covered by a grey pin-stripe fabric cover with only a glimpse of the front right side coyly peeping out.

The full picture was revealed at the March 2009 Geneva Motor Show, where a metallic blue mockup and rolling chassis with its entire powertrain were on display.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_text_separator title=”Automotive Art”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The finished car made its bow in late April 2009 at the Concorso d’Eleganza Ville d’Este on the shores of Lake Como, winning the design Award for Concept Cars and Prototypes. Fusing advanced technology with stunning design, the million-pound, 7.3 litre V12 One-77 was revealed as the fastest-ever Aston Martin, with a top speed of 220 mph. It represents what is possibly the world’s most desirable automotive art form, with an immensely rigid lightweight carbon fibre monocoque clad in a seamless bodyshell handcrafted from aluminium at its heart. With all 77 examples sold, production of One-77 was completed in 2012.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_text_separator title=”Specification”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
