The Australian International Motor Show can confirm that one of the most exclusive vehicles in the world, an Aston Martin One-77 will take centre stage at this year’s Show at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre.
The only Aston Martin One-77 in Australia and one of just 77 in the world, this vehicle is considered by many to be one of the most sought-after and expensive supercars on earth, initially costing over 1.2 million pounds.
Hand-crafted in England, the One-77 is billed by Aston Martin as its definitive sports car – a vehicle that epitomises everything Aston Martin is from technology, hand-craftsmanship of the hand rolled aluminium panels to the attention to detail. “I am very proud and excited that an Aston Martin One-77 will be on display at the 2012 Australian International Motor Show,” said Russ Tyrie, Show Director.
“The One-77 was first revealed to the world in concept form three years ago, and this year, Australians will be able to see one in all its glory after its owner has generously allowed for it to be on public display, only months after taking possession.”
A thrilling fusion of advanced technology and stunning design, the One-77 combines a carbon fibre monocoque structure and aluminium body panels with a 7.3 litre naturally aspirated V12 engine producing 559kW and 750Nm. The two door sports coupe achieves 100km/h in just 3.7 seconds and is capable of reaching speeds in excess of 350km/h.
“In the creation of the One-77, Aston Martin wanted to create a car closer to art than the automobile and it has certainly achieved that,” said Tyrie. “The One-77 is unique, it is like no other Aston Martin or supercar ever engineered and we are confident it will be a talking point of this year’s Australian International Motor Show,” said Tyrie.
The 2012 Australian International Motor Show will be held at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour and will open daily at 10am from October 19 to 28.
