Aston Martin Lagonda Limited is a manufacturer of luxury sports cars and grand tourers, founded in 1913 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford. The firm became associated with touring cars in the 1950s and 1960s.
The One-77 features a full carbon fibre monocoque chassis, a handcrafted aluminium body, and a naturally aspirated 7.3 litre (7312 cc) V12 engine with 750 hp (560 kW). Aston Martin claimed it would be the most powerful naturally aspirated production engine in the world when the first car was delivered. The car uses a strengthened version of the DB9's 6-speed automated manual transmission and height-adjustable pushrod suspension coupled with dynamic stability control, featuring Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres (255/35 ZR20 front, 335/30 ZR20 rear) and Carbon Ceramic Matrix brakes.Continue

Starting delivery in the second half of 2012, the Zagato was priced at around £330,000 excluding local taxes.Continue
