It is argued that the "One-77" is a sports car of unparalleled beauty with subtle aggression and performance and was the most exclusive Aston Martin of the 'Gaydon era'. The One-77 was developed in 2008 and 2009 with the goal of eclipsing any previous Aston Martin road car.
The first glimpse the world got of the One-77 hypercar was a maquette of the new car at the 2008 Paris Motor Show, three quarters covered by a grey pin-stripe fabric cover with only a glimpse of the front right side coyly peeping out. The full picture was revealed at the March 2009 Geneva Motor Show, where a metallic blue mockup and rolling chassis with its entire powertrain were on display. The finished car made its bow in late April 2009 at the Concorso d'Eleganza Ville d'Este on the shores of Lake Como, winning the Design Award for Concept Cars and Prototypes.
Fusing advanced technology with stunning design, the 750 bhp 7.3 litre V12 One-77 was revealed as the fastest-ever Aston Martin, with a top speed of 220 mph. In Aston Martin's eyes the One-77 at the time represented what was possibly the world's most desirable automotive art form, we agree.
Very much an amalgamation of the highlights of modern Aston Martin design, the One-77 was limited to just 77 units, each one an individual representation of Aston Martin’s best customers. Built-in partnership with advanced technical partners Multimatic, who were wholly responsible for the car’s complex chassis and suspension componentry, have since gone on to build the V6 Ford GT and presently, the Mercedes AMG Project One.
Whilst the entire Aston Martin range at the time used an aluminium tub as part of the VH architecture, the One-77 was developed to be as light as possible. Multimatic created a full carbon fibre tub, each one taking 6 weeks to lay by hand and manufactured at their facility in Canada before being sent to the UK.
The Aston Martin One-77 made its production debut on the shores of Lake Como at the Concorso d'Eleganza at the Villa d'Este in 2009. Previously shown without an interior or working drivetrain, the One-77s first appearance would see it optioned in the bespoke hue, appropriately named Villa d'Este Blue. This single owner One-77 is optioned in the same blue tone, over a complementing Magnetic Grey & Smoke Grey leather interior with Blue stitching.
Having covered just 2,600 miles from new, this One-77 presents superbly and is available to view at our showrooms outside London immediately, accompanied by its original book pack and accessories. This One-77 has just returned to Aston Martin Works in November 2023 once more for a major service as part of the sale.
