As­ton Martin project in the pic­ture

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - NEWS -

Power surge: As­ton Martin’s filmed trickle of in­for­ma­tion about the One-77 project now re­veals that its 7.3-litre V12 en­gine will be the most pow­er­ful road car en­gine with­out a tur­bocharger or su­per­charger.

It has been cer­ti­fied at 750bhp and 552.7lb-ft of torque, re­veals Ul­rich Bez, CEO of As­ton Martin.

In the fourth part of the One-77 film se­ries, Dr Bez and Marek Re­ich­man, di­rec­tor of de­sign, dis­cuss the fun­da­men­tal el­e­ments of what makes the One-77 so unique. The film shows the first com­plete en­gi­neer­ing car in mo­tion on the test track.

Dr Bez: “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 77 cars are ex­pected to com­mence in early 2011.
