Aston Martin One-77: beautiful, cool, iconic desirable and I want one!

Aston Martin One-77

Watch and enjoy the video.  Do you desire one?  They are apparently all pre-sold, which is not surprising, even with a staggering price tag.  According to the British magazine Top Gear, the car’s price will be £1,200,000, while the American magazine Robb Report expects it to be priced at US$2,000,000.  There are enough people in the world that want exclusivity and have the money, lucky them I say.  It will have a limited run of 77 units with delivery starting in October 2010.

The One-77 will feature a full carbon fibre monocoque chassis, a handcrafted aluminium body, and a 7.3 litre V12 engine with over 700 hp (520 kW).  The engine will be naturally aspirated, and the car will have 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.  Top speed was estimated to be 200 mph (320 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 in approximately 3.5 seconds.  The projected weight is 1,500 kg (3,307 lb).

I personally think this car stikes all the following buttons as a car: beautiful, cool, iconic and desirable.  It is certainly a car that will provoke emotion and everyone will invariably have a different opinion, which I would like to hear about.  What do you think of the Aston Martin One-77?  If you are one of the lucky owners of a One-77, then we would love to hear your reasons for buying a One-77, what the drive experience is like and how it makes you feel.
