Aston Martin One-77 in London Traffic [Video]
This particular black model does a good job of sitting quietly at the lights but its acceleration is savage and twitch compared to the taxis and family cars around it. It could probably brake the speed limit in second gear if the owner wanted to.
This beast of the British road is powered by a 7.3-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine, which is an extreme evolution of the 6.0-liter V12 engines fitted to the Aston Martin DBS, DB9 and new V12 Vantage models. The magnificent beast you hear revving in the video delivers all of its 700+ horsepower to the rear wheels via a new six-speed gearbox. Rumor has it that Aston is selling these bad boys for around £1,050,000, which is about €1,220,000 at the current exchange rate.
