The One-77 was a result of a project in which Aston Martin set out to develop a road car that eclipsed every Aston that proceeded it, in terms of performance but still retaining unparalleled looks. The car became the first true hypercar produced in the Gaydon era, marking the start on a complete new era for Aston Martin. Penned by design studio at Gaydon under the direction of Marek Reichman, the car made its first public appearance at the 2008 Paris Motor Show, the car was clocked in a Saville Row cover, with glimpse of the car visible.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 shown to the world in late April 2009 at the Concorso d'Eleganza Ville d'Este on the shores of Lake Como, where it won the design Award for Concept Cars and Prototypes. Fusing advanced technology with stunning design, the million-pound, 7.3 litre V12 One-77 was the fastest-ever Aston Martin, with a top speed of 220 mph. It represents what is possibly the world's most desirable automotive art form. At the time of first customer car being delivered Aston Martin claimed the engine to be the most powerful production naturally aspirated engine, this combined with an immensely rigid lightweight carbon fibre monocoque clad in a seamless bodyshell handcrafted from aluminium at its heart, made for an unbelievably competent car. With all 77 examples sold out almost instantly, production of One-77 was completed in 2012.
This particular example was supplied new to New Zealand in May 2011, is one of just a hand full of RHD cars. Originally owned by the late logistics tycoon and philanthropist Neil Graham, who used the car widely across New Zealand. The car then passed to its second owner. Finished in the beautiful Jet black, the car benefited from full PPF from new as such the paintwork has remained in remarkable cosmetic order. On the interior beautiful red leather contrasts against the carbon fibre that surrounds the cockpit. The trim work as with all Aston Martins is of the highest quality, and like the exterior in remarkable order. Given the importance and rarity of these cars, all sit in large collections, as such this represents a very rare opportunity to purchase one of the most important cars ever build by Aston Martin in its 105 year history.
The car has benefited from a comprehensive Aston Martin Service history to date with the supplying dealer.
