In the primeval days of August 2008, we armed you with a response if anyone were to ever ask you what you?d buy instead of a Maybach: Aston Martin?s ?1,000,000 (AU$2,227,215) One-77 supercar.
A couple of new images, and a wee bit more detail, has since emerged. The inside word is that we should expect to see the One-77 loaded with a 7.3 litre V12, shoving 522kW out the back and you into your seat with 750Nm of torque. All of that power will be put down courtesy of a mid-mounted six-speed semi-automatic manual transmission, with Auto Shift Manual (which means you can?t blow it up as easily) and Select Shift Manual.
The two-seater One-77 will be available in both left- and right-hand-drive (hallelujah!), and, to make the most of the phenomenal power, the body panels will be crafted by hand from the finest aluminium, and the monocoque frame from carbon fibre. This will help the supercar maintain a respectable 1496kg.
Other neat features include a deployable rear spoiler (no word on whether you?ll need a Veyron-like key to activate the function), adaptive suspension, carbon ceramic brakes (of course), as well as stability/traction control.
Only 77 units of the One-77 will be offered.
