Luxury Supercars: Shaken not stirred, exploding pens, and grappling hook watches. These are the things thought of when hearing the name James Bond. But there is something missing, something very important. Something that is even more beautiful than all of the Bond girls combined. Yes, the Aston Martin. Since its debut in Goldfinger the two have been like kindred spirits. And why not? They both have dashing good looks, amazing performance, and that unmistakable British charm.
Recently, Aston Martin announced a new luxury supercar unlike any other on the market, one that could only be an Aston Martin. The all-new One-77 is the flagship line of Aston Martin, and, with a price tag of over $1.5 million it is sure to satisfy the most discerning of car enthusiasts. But this debonair auto is more than just a show pony, it also packs a muscle bound 7.3 liter V12 engine churning out a mind-numbing, pavement pounding 700hp.
Anxious that you won't be the only one with Britain's finest luxury supercar in your garage? Put your worries to rest. Aston has crafted the One-77 as a special edition limited run, and will produce only 77 units in all. So you had better get in line quickly. A spokesperson from the company has stated that they have already received over 100 pre-orders-- successfully selling out the entire run of this elite luxury speedster.
Buyers of this extreme coupe will be able to go through a selective customization program, which enables them to customize every aspect of the car and create totally personalized mode of transportation. Aston has done this to ensure the highest level of customer satisfaction and to create a completely unique, one-of-a-kind vehicle so that no two cars will be the same. The car will feature the rear mounted six-speed auto manual transition that the company has become known for, an active aerodynamic system, hand crafted aluminum body panels, and a carbon-fiber monocoque body structure to guarantee as low of a curb weight as possible. The car will also be available in both right and left hand drive. Every detail of the car will be customized to the liking of the owner. Each interior trim facet will be custom designed for the buyer and even the gearbox can be customized. One of the most luxurious features is the custom fit driver and passenger seat. The seats will be tailored to fit with the individual?s own curves to provide maximum comfort. After all, who wants to get a cramp in the rear while racing at speeds of over 200mph? Custom trim, woods, leathers, and metals will all be a part of this exclusive vehicle.
Aston Martin has given the One-77 it's signature wide stance and squared off rear-end with taillights similar to the DBS/Vantage. This is a distinctive vision of what the company believes a super luxury car should be. You may not be a real life secret agent, but no one will be able to tell when you are driving one of these 77 unique beauties.
