Although the Aston Martin V12 Zagato is grabbing more headline space lately, the car manufacturer is reminding auto enthusiasts about the new One-77 model rather aggressively. The British automaker has revealed a new promo video of the One-77 which has the collector’s edition car flaunting what its made of at the Paul Ricard Circuit.
The engine specifications for the One-77, Aston Martin’s supercar, have been released. Contrary to earlier estimates, the One-77 will have a 7.3-liter V12, rated at 750 bhp (559 kW / 760 PS) and 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) of torque. Not a word has been officially heard on performance figures, but a pre-production prototype has earlier hit a top speed of 220 mph (355 km/h)
If you have been waiting for the Aston Martin One-77 to arrive, gear up for the big event! A test car was recently spotted and speculations are that the final testing on the model is being undertaken currently so that customers could soon be able to take delivery of the car.
The Aston Martin One-77 test car has been caught on camera at the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Going by what we see, the new sports car from Aston Martin is driven by a 7.3-liter V12 engine.

Capable of racing from0 to 60 mph in just 3.3 seconds, the sports car model can touch top speeds of over 200 mph. This has been proved by a prototype, which under test conditions, ran up to 220 mph or 355 km/h speeds. Are you among the first 77 to take the car out for a spin? [via WCF]
For those out of the know, the new Aston Martin One-77 is a limited edition supercar — only 77 units slated for production. As exclusive as it may sound, 10 of these scorching speedsters have been ordered by some crazy fanatic hailing from the middle-east. That is surely a whopping order as the guy is paying $17M for 10 units and the speculation is that each of these 10 cars will get a unique exterior color and cabin. The new Aston Martin One-77 features a 7.3-liter V12 engine capable of producing 700bhp, and can hit a top-speed of 355km/h.
