Aston One-77: The Aston with the worlds most powerful normally aspirated engine

Want to own and run an Aston Martin One-77? You would wouldn't you if it isn't for the approximately £1.2m price. But then again, if you got one for free you would feel secure in the thought that the fastest, most expensive Aston Martin is also the one with the world's most powerful normally aspirated road car/production engine at 750bhp from its 7.3liter V12. A marvel in modern technology....

And it also costs a stunning SG$9,100 (approx) per year in road tax not including insurance. If you happen to buy one in Singapore that is. Dr. Ulrich Bez, Chief Executive of Aston Martin added that “The One-77 is approaching a production reality and of course, there is considerable excitement in the project. Now the next steps are all about details and refinement to complete the composition. I know the final car will demonstrate what the Aston Martin team is capable of.”

Deliveries of the One-77 are expected to commence in early 2011. The One-77, the ultimate iteration of an Aston Martin road car will be built at the manufacturer’s headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire in the U.K. The car, despite its limited 77 unit production run it is being subjected to the same engineering development process as the current range of all of its sports cars and has been undergoing testing over the past year at least. This includes extreme hot and cold testing plus sign-off at the Nürburgring Nordschleife; the world’s most famous test track.

But note that while it may be the most powerful normally asiprated road car engine. It is also one of the largest. It could be quite simple to get huge amounts of horsepower from a 7liter engine. It isn't exactly squeezing water from a rock. Or squeezing 500bhp from a 1liter 3 cylinder engine. You got so much cubic capacity to play with in the first place!

I love how marketing comes to play even for a car as desirable as an Aston Martin.

I do agree with you. The over the top-ness of the front was actually the reason I chose it to be the opening photo. The last one shows some elegance in the design.
