Fashionably late: Aston Martin One-77 coming to the 2011 LA Auto Show
The Aston Martin One-77 made its full world and auto show debut at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show. The very exclusive Aston will now be making its U.S. auto show debut at the 2011 LA Auto Show next week with dealer partner, Galpin Aston Martin of California.
“The One-77 epitomizes everything Aston Martin; modern technology fused with traditional hand-craftsmanship and painstaking attention to detail,” Aston said in a statement. “A culmination of over 98 years of engineering and styling expertise, the One-77 offers supercar performance in excess of 200mph with a functional yet elegant styled form that is distinctly Aston Martin.”
The Aston One-77 was initially conceptualized in October 2007 with the first unit of a limited 77 rolling off the assembly line in late 2010. Each One-77 takes approximately 2,700 man hours to assemble – built by a dedicated team of 27 technicians.

The unit making its debut at the 2011 LA Auto Show is a final pre-production engineering development car, which has completed 14,000 miles of testing.
Power for the Aston Martin One-77 comes from a 7.3 liter V12 engine making 750-hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a 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.
