$1.896 million Aston Martin One-77 Sales Contract Leaks With More Pictures, Details

Illustration for article titled $1.896 million Aston Martin One-77 Sales Contract Leaks With More Pictures, Details

It looks like a sales contract for the forthcoming Aston Martin One-77 has leaked, bringing with it details of the price, performance and specifications, as well as two new teaser shots. With 700 HP, 553 lb-ft of torque, a 3,300-pound curb weight and a limited run of only 77 units, the One-77 certainly looks like it'll be a special car. But can it justify the astronomical, nearly $1.9 million price?
The One-77 will be available in either left- or right-hand drive, has only two seats, uses a carbon monocoque chassis with hand-worked aluminum body panels, active aerodynamics (including deployable spoiler), carbon ceramic brakes and a six-speed automated manual transmission. The engine will be a naturally aspirated 7.3-liter V12, allowing the car to reach 60 in the mid three-second range and top out just north of 200mph. That all sounds great, but what does the One-77 offer (other than good looks) that, say, a $480,000 Mercedes SLR McLaren 722 doesn't, and for a fraction of the price? Wow, we never thought we'd ask that. Take a look at the contract and let us know if you spot something in there that's worth $1.3 million. Us? We're still saving for a ZR1. [925.nl via Autoblog]

Listening to Jan and Dean's Mighty GTO and looking at the pictures of this car makes me feel weird. Toss in Keak da Sneak's line "455' got me run'n up on Austin Martin's." Was the feeling of the kids working on street machines back in the 60s that someday they would dust a DB-6 or a DBS? Jan and Dean already told me of a Stingray's dreams to trounce a Jag, but what of David Brown's cars? What car today would be that GTO to trump this gentleman's plaything? Do kids even care anymore? Jan and Dean, you trouble me so.
