Aston Martin confirmed today that the first public display of the complete One-77 concept will be shown at the 2009 Concorso d’Eleganza in Lake Como, Italy next week.
“This is a major step in One-77’s engineering program, showing the first complete car, and will demonstrate new benchmarks in many different fields of automotive design,” said Aston Martin’s CEO Dr Ulrich Bez.
Refresher: Power comes from a 7.3L V12 producing more than 700-hp. The engine is mated to a new 6-speed gearbox that allows the One-77 to go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds with a top speed of over 200 mph.
