Aston Martin One-77Aston Martin's new supercar makes the rest of the company's line look like a bunch of pedicabs.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:10 >> Aston Martin has just unveiled the One-77 Supercar. >> They took the company's 6-liter V12 and let Cosworth barn [assumed spelling] stroke it to 7.3 liters while also making it 25% lighter. Result, just over 700 horsepower that's good for 0 to 60 in about three and a half. Top speed, 200 miles per hour. That engine is in the front. The tires that will emit all the smoke are in the back. In between is a six speed automated manual gearbox. Underneath is a carbon fiber tub. The suspension is an inboard design, which any old jag mechanic will tell you is a dicey bit of work when it comes to maintenance. But if you buy one of these, you're not concerned about a bargain brake job. They're going to build just 77 of them. >> And price each one around 1.75 million dollars. ^M00:01:01 [ Music ]
