It first appeared at the 2008 Paris Motor Show, although the car remained mostly covered by a "Savile Row tailored skirt" throughout the show, before being fully revealed at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show, and deliveries from the beginning of 2011.
There was a limited run of 77 cars, giving part of the name of the One-77, and sold for GB£1,150,000. In May 2012, one of these supercars crashed in Hong Kong, China (SAR), reducing the number of total cars in existence to 76.
Prior to the One-77's Paris Motor Show debut, various details about the car had been leaked, but official specifications were not fully revealed until the 2009 Geneva Motor Show.
The One-77 features a full carbon fibre monocoque chassis, a handcrafted aluminium body, and a naturally aspirated 7.3 litre (7312 cc) V12 engine with 750 hp (560 kW). Aston Martin claimed it would be the most powerful naturally aspirated production engine in the world when the first car was delivered.
The car uses a strengthened version of the DB9's 6-speed automated manual transmission and height-adjustable pushrod suspension coupled with dynamic stability control. It will feature Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres (255/35 ZR20 front, 335/30 ZR20 rear) and Carbon Ceramic Matrix brakes.
The top speed was estimated to be 220 mph (350 km/h) but actual tests in December 2009 showed a figure of 220.007 mph (354.067 km/h), with a 0–60 mph time of approximately 3.5 seconds.
The engineering and build source of the carbon chassis and suspension system was contracted to Multimatic of Canada.
The projected weight was 1,500 kg (3,307 lb), but the production model was 1,630 kg (3,594 lb). The CO2 emissions of the One-77 are rated at 572 g/km.
The Aston Martin One-77 has been awarded with several internationally renowned design awards including the Concorso d’Eleganza Design Award for Concept Cars and Prototypes, the GOOD DESIGN award by The Chicago Athenauem: Museum of Architecture and Design in North America and the "Best Design" award by the UK motoring magazine Auto Express. and many others.
Towards the end of its production, Aston Martin produced a seven-unit, special version of the One-77 called the "Q-Series". The "Q" part of the name comes from the Q by Aston Martin personalization program. The "series" part of the name is a possible reference to the selection of liveries that appear on each car.
The vehicle liveries are:
- Metallic grey paint, black 10-spoke rims, red/black two-tone interior, red stripe on front fascia
- Solid white paint, silver 10-spoke rims, black interior, red stripe on front fascia, black mirrors
- Solid white paint, silver 12-spoke rims, red/black two-tone interior, red double stripe along body
- Black paint, black 10-spoke wheels, red/black two-tone interior, red stripe on front fascia, dark red mirrors
The vehicle's specifications and performance figures are still the same. The owners of these cars are mostly Arabian.[clarification needed] One of these vehicles was on sale in 2012 in Dubai, Abu Dhabi for AED 11 million (US$2.9 million).
