The One-77 will feature a 7.3 liter, naturally aspirated V12 engine producing about 700 hp. The lightweight chassis, a 'tub' core, is made of a dense and rigid carbon fiber monocoque.
An internal product brief for the Aston Martin One-77 has been leaked and with it come a few more details about the upcoming ultra-supercar from the iconic British brand.
The 'tub' core of the car is a lightweight chassis made of a dense and rigid carbon fiber monocoque, part of which will keep the curb weight of the 0ne-77 down to a sprightly 1,500 kg (3307 lbs). It was engineered with the help of Multimatic (MTC) - a company that specializes in carbon composite materials and technologies.
Mounted onto the chassis are double wishbones at each corner and pushrods that move suspension loads to the horizontally-lined-up dampers. The dampers are of a sophisticated technology which Aston Martin calls Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve (DSSV). The valves in the dampers consist of precision crafted components that make it possible to change the tension in the dampers without them having to be removed.
There are also carbon-ceramic discs and new calipers for the brakes that create less heat transfer from the pads to the fluid.
Yes, lots of little details that describe for us how the One-77 will be handling all that power.
How much is it again? 700 hp from a new 7.3 liter, naturally aspirated V12 engine that Aston Martin is developing with Cosworth. The engineers re-sculpted the old 6.0 liter V12 seen in the DB9 by adding displacement but reducing weight on the drivetrain by an impressive 25 percent. And with the help of a new 6-speed gearbox the One-77 is expected to sprint from 0-60 mph (100 km/h) in about 3.5 seconds and have a top speed above 200 mph (or 320 km/h).
The One-77 (which sounds very Bond-ish, wouldn't you say?) will cost somewhere in the neighborhood of 1.2 million pound UK (1.3 million euros). There will be only 77 of them made.
