After numerous concept presentations, Aston Martin has finally presented the first fully completed one-77. New British super car presentation was held at the exclusive car show Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este in Italy. The concept car exterior design was already seen in pictures, but now it was possible to see the car interior.

There will be made only 77 Aston Martin One-77, and each car will cost at least 1,8 million dollars. Very soon they will make the first custom-made copy. All the small series production will be completed by the end of the next year. Moreover, as Aston Martin representatives have pointed out, each car will be made in close conjunction with its next owner, and the manufacturer will use its best efforts to be sure that none of 77 unique cars is coming into the so-called profiteers hands.

Like F1 racing car, the One-77 design is based on the ultra-light and highly resistant carbon fiber moncok (continuous body structure). At moncok there has been attached the four wheel double lever suspension and it is almost the same as it is on F1 racing car, where the vertical suspension is converted into horizontal. It is also the first time when a street car has received DSSV technology, which allows to adjust damping characteristics very precise whit out removing the suspension elements off the car.

The One-77 engine is also unique. Although it on Aston Martin popular 6.0-liter V12 engine's base, its capacity has increased to 7.3 liters, meanwhile the engine weight has been reduced by 25%. In the result the engine has more than 700 horse power. The car also has specially developed six-speed automatic gearbox.

Aston Martin One-77's maximum speed exceeds 200 miles per hour, while acceleration from 0-60 miles per hour will take around 3.5 seconds. For stopping the car it has carbon-ceramic composite brakes to minimize the brake fluid heat system.

Hennessey Launches Performance Venom GT

Super tuner Hennessey has put out some radical Corvettes as the years have gone by and now the company has released its version of the true Super Car and has dubbed it the Hennessey Performance Venom GT. Part Lotus and Part Corvette, this vehicle has been all the rage on the chat boards and much speculation had gone into the inner workings of the car.

Now the answers that everyone was seeking are abundantly clear and the Hennessy Performance Venom GT is certainly blowing away expectations to say the very least. To call it a 'performance' car is a true understatement of the word itself as the car represents the best of the best as far as components goes.


The Hennessey Performance Venom GT tips the scales at a very scant 2,400 pounds and at just over a ton, this super car has a ton of power. Under the hood of the Venom GT lives a Corvette ZR1 LS9 V-8 engine that is complimented with dual turbos. The 6.3 liter engine is capable of putting out 725 horsepower and about 741 foot pounds of torque. The end result is a car that can cruise from 0 to 60 miles per hour in around 2.4 seconds and will do top speeds approaching the 265 mile per hour mark.

Carrying the massive engine and the rest of the light weight Venom GT is a Lotus Elise chassis. This lightweight yet extremely strong chassis is considered by many in the auto world the cream of the crop.

The transmission is a Ricardo six speed manual that is also top of the line. The Hennessey Performance Venom GT will also feature the programmable traction control system similar to the one used in the Corvette ZR1.

The car will make its official public debut this year at the Goodwill Festival of Speed and Hennessy only plans on making ten models per year. The Venom GT has already been planned to land in Russia, the Middle East, Europe, and Asia. No plans are set as of yet for a landing date in the United States.

These wheels will cost around $600,000.00 and if you think that is too much money, consider that Hennessey has already pre-sold four units. Just as with any other super car, as there are many people with tons of money and a love for speed, there will be a market for the super car.

For the lucky few that do get to own one of these works of art they may also want to consider the next level of Venom GT already in the works. According to Hennessey, the newer versions will have 1000 to 1200 horsepower and will obviously blow the doors off of the first generation.

For now though anyone with the money and the speed fever can obtain one of these beauties. As nice as it is to simply see the Hennesse Perfomance Venom GT in pictures or in person, the ultimate in joy will go to those who actually get to drive one.
