Autoblog are reporting this morning that our news last week that we’d seen the real Aston Martin One-77, and therefore concluded it was going to show at Geneva, are right.
The Aston Martin One-77 is going to be previewed later today at the Motor Show in Geneva. It features a highly tuned (by Cosworth) version of Aston Martin’s Ford derived 6,0 litre V12, which has been enlarged to 7.3 litres. Amazingly, the enlarged engine weighs 25% less than the engine on which it’s based, but manages to produce a massive 700bhp.
And the One-77 is light too. It’s all carbon monocoque helps keep weight down to 3300lbs. Features include inboard suspension, ceramic brakes and a six-speed sequential box.
All this should add up to some pretty special performance from what will inevitably be the fastest Aston Martin ever. Expect to see a 0-60 time of a little over 3 seconds, and on to a top speed well over 200mph.
More news later today when the car actually launches. But nice to see Autoblog confirm what we told you last week!
