One-Seven Seven Goes Ballistic
Aston Martin’s One-77 supercar has moved closer to setting a new all-time record for the British marque in initial high speed testing.
According the Aston Martin, the ridiculously pricey and carnally proportioned One-77 is currently undergoing development testing in advance of the planned launch in 2010 at a top secret proving ground in southern Europe. In a series of test runs completed last week the One-77 exceeded original expectations and recorded a 220.007mph (354.86kmh) top speed in dry but windy conditions Dynamic testing is now scheduled to continue into the New Year.
