When the fastest aston martin is delivered to its owner, the setup can be adjusted to his liking. Power comes from a 7.3-liter V12 mounted in a low, front-mid-engine configuration for secure handling. It was developed from the 6.0-liter V12 used in the DBS, DB9, and V12 by by the motor masters at Cosworth. The transmission is a six-speed with paddle shifters, natch. All 3,300 pounds sit on 20-inch Pirellis specially designed for transferring the One-77′s 700-plus horsepower to the pavement.

This fastest aston martin also features the best of Aston’s craftsmanship, including hand-rolled aluminum body panels. The design is recognizably Aston Martin, from the dented-oval front grille to the Bond-worthy curves from nose to tail. The level of detail is taken up a notch, since there are only a few dozen of these to ever be built. The curves at the front intakes reach into the headlight housing that gives the front end a hungry look.

The side strakes behind the front fenders allow air to exit without destabilizing the aerodynamics and add a visual allusion to speed. Since so few cars are to be built, 2700 man-hours of hand-craftsmanship, inside and out, can be lavished that rolls out of the specially designed factory on this fastest aston martin.
