Carbon fibre chassis covered in handcrafted aluminium body will have a 7-litre V12 engine

Mercedes-Benz is preparing a new Gullwing, Ferrari is working on the next Enzo, and Pagani is developing a new Zonda... Is there a chance Aston Martin would be out of this supercar effort? No way, and the company has proven that by revealing it is developing a new supercar, the One-77. As the name states, only 77 units of this beauty will be made.

Although the company has not released much about the car besides this single design sketch so far, the One-77 will have a handcrafted body in aluminium, which will be sustained by a carbon-fibre chassis. Light weight chassis combined a 7.0-litre V12 engine expected to produce at least 550 bhp, a top speed that exceeds 350 km/h and a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in about 3 seconds is bloody marvelous.  Fortunate ones, these 77 future owners!
