Aston Martin Kicking Off One-77 Asian Tour

Aston Martin has big plans for its flagship model, the limited-production One-77. The vehicle is now preparing to start its first tour of Asia.

The vehicle will travel to Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taipei and China. The tour kicks off today with a special event that will include 200 guests. The presentation is taking place at the Cirque Du Soleil Theatre in Tokyo, Japan.

Aston Martin sees Asia Pacific as a key market with an important expansion potential. Over the last few years, the company has expanded its dealer network in the area to 14 locations, with the latest developments targeting China and Taiwan. And Aston Martin really plans to keep up this accelerated development pace. We’ll mention that the automotive producer’s global dealer network includes 126 locations in 39 countries.

It's also worth mentioning that the One-77 uses a 750 hp 7.3 liter V12 powerplant, the world’s most powerful road car naturally aspirated engine.

The One-77, a sports car of unparalleled beauty with subtle aggression and performance to eclipse any previous Aston Martin road car will be built at the marque’s global headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire. Over the past nine months, the One-77 has been undergoing Aston Martin’s rigorous engineering test programme,” stated the press release.

The car, despite its exclusive volume of only 77 is being subjected to the same engineering development process as the current range of acclaimed sports cars. This includes extreme hot and cold testing plus sign-off at the Nurburgring Nordschleife; the world’s toughest and most unforgiving test track.
