Aston Martin is building a pre-production version of the One-77 supercar that will take on the Nurburgring, reports AutoCar. Sources say that the unit you see at auto shows is just a running prototype and the next stage of the car’s development is to build a pre-production version for fine tuning at the Nurburgring, where Aston Martin has a facility.
Chris Porritt, One-77 program manager, said that the One-77 will go into production in the spring of 2010 with the first customer deliveries to begin in mid-2010.
Porritt said that 40 confirmed orders have been taken (so it’s apparently not sold out), each of which will take the folks at Gaydon three and a half months to build.
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.
