    Exhaust note :


    Re: Aston Martin one-77

    fast idle, very raw and mean. sounds like a pre-historic animal. I want to hear it fly-by at redline. 

    Good so far

    It takes more than noise to create a great car

    But you don't have a great car w/o it!
     

    And porsche has usually missed that critical factor, except for the cgt and when you uncork a 928.

    Considering the one-77 has 700 hp I think we can relax about its greatness,

    It is also NOT a boy racer/track car, its real car a gt for the road.

    I am surprised as last i read it had been delayed due to economic situation.


    Re: Aston Martin one-77

    At some $2million I don't think they would find willing buyers in today's world.

    Re: Aston Martin one-77

    It just occurred to me, why didn't the video operator walk around the the whole car and also film inside, not good thinking.

    anyway found this - not a hijack 


    Re: Aston Martin one-77

    The design contains a lot of interesting elements. I prefer the DBS on looks but I'm sure a few of themwillfind ahome somewhere.

    Re: Aston Martin one-77

    Thanks for posting, again lousy videography.

    I like it, especially the butt.

    Low. wide, and sleek, - that's what makes a car desirable, to me.

    It's like an SL 65 black with british class thrown in.

    If the tires are wide enough it should handle well.

     


    Re: Aston Martin one-77

    this is the kind of car we are going to see in movies being driven by the bad guys with a scar across their face. :P 


    Re: Aston Martin one-77

     Sounds good, but the car is a bit ugly. I like all the other Astons, aside from the Raptide, also ugly...

     Pretty cool stuff.  DBRS engine?


    Re: Aston Martin one-77

     This carbon chassis is amazing.


    Re: Aston Martin one-77

    for that money it would have to be bugatti......

    aston are not on the top of their game in the performance dept.

    Re: Aston Martin one-77

    New video

    Should be better quality in sight and sound for a video from AM but you do get a hint of how good the car will sound @1:30. Very smooth, high revving 12.

    This car will rival the CGT for sound imo. The shape is very nice, wider and lower than other AM's. I hope they do a real nice HD video series for everyone to enjoy and to get some brand build-up from this model.

    keep in mind this particular car is a tester with test equipment and an un finished engine bay.


    Re: Aston Martin one-77

    WOW - this car looks so great!

    Sound is amazing, too but the video looks like a race version. Doors have no interior cover, so this might be a different car anyway?

    Have you seen those ugly white wires on 1:00? this mast be a pre-version.

    Accelaration at 1:27 sounds just breathtaking!

    ..... best looking Aston ever!


    Re: Aston Martin one-77

    No whites tires in that video, @1:00 is a view of the interior bases rear suspensions bits with a couple recording computers for testing data with wires coming out of them. I already said this is the test mule but it will be equivalent to the finished 77.

     

    This car has already gone past 220 mph.


    Re: Aston Martin one-77

    Nope... white "W"ires not Tires :-)

    Testcomputer... might be?


    Re: Aston Martin one-77

    Test mule!

    My reading mistake!
     

     

    Yes test equipment being held in place by bungee cords.

    the finished interior no more spaghetti wires or black boxes

    Re: Aston Martin one-77

    Great Shots! The blue bungees I didn't seen!

    Those shots are just stunning. This car is so detailed and beautiful!


    Re: Aston Martin one-77

    Not a fan of the interior but everything else is great. Very impressive car.


    Re: Aston Martin one-77

    As stunning as it is, if you own one of the current Astons then you will see far too many similarities in the the one-77 to your own car.  It has all been beautifully retrimmed but the instruments, the seat adjustment, the steering wheel, the doors (and I could go on) all seem to be basically the same components under the skin.  Now I realise all manufacturers have to do this to some extent in their model range to save on costs, but given this is a limited run of only 77 cars and they cost  £1M each, I for one would expect something rather bespoke and unique for the money.

    I would still give my right arm for one though.  Now then where did I leave that £900k+ for the trade in against my V8 Vantage... :) 


    Re: Aston Martin one-77

    Adam the only things I see similiar are the instrument pod shape and steering wheel and to some extent the seats, But only similiar in look not detail.

     

    In fact this car is probably all new, especially when you get under the skin, look at the pics above. No car looks like that, And to make all these bits and pieces for only 77 units  is amazing. The engine is all different internally. The body dimensins are all different compared to their other models.

     

    No other Aston looks like this each piece has to be designed, then physically made and be made to look professional, like something made 1000's of times, not easy especially with CF.

     

     

    DBS  metals vs, CF ^^  completely different air intake, lighter stronger engine ^^^ conv. suspension on DBS , internal on One-77

    am dbs.jpg  

     

    I think you can see that no major parts are shared beyond the steering fluid resevoir


    Re: Aston Martin one-77

    For example a new DB-9 dash compare above to the One-77 dash all different but similiar, Vents are square on DB9 and roundish and aluminum on One-77, The only piece shared is the instrument pod.

    AM db9 dashboard_dashboard post.jpg 

     

    dash on One-77

     

    post one-77-dash.jpg 


    Re: Aston Martin one-77

    It's the same!  just trimmed differently - look at the position of the seat adjustment and the basic layout of the button - look at the new dash layout (the pic you have shown above is the OLD dash layout not the new one).

    new dash : 

    again striking similarities - look at the basic layout of the stereo controls and buttons - under the skin im sure its all the same equipment.  The doors are basically the same too - albeit it with cosmetic changes to the wing mirrors.

    I have a new V8 vantage and i sit in it every day - trust me there are lots of similarities with the one-77 on the functional items items - its just cosmetically finished different (and much better).  Im certain when it comes to the important bits i.e. the chassis and engine that its all new - but for £1M my point is I expected it all to be new - not just many many parts stolen from the existing parts bin.


    Re: Aston Martin one-77

    That new dash and the Aston interior over all was always one of my favorites. But the steering wheel is a no go!

    The steering looks like out of here:
