Australia’s only Aston Martin One-77 at the 2012 motor show - 12th October 2012

“The One-77 was first revealed to the world in concept form three years ago".

Australian International Motor Show press release

Aston Martin One-77 to come out of hiding for AIMS 2012.

The Australian International Motor Show can confirm that one of the most exclusive vehicles in the world, an Aston Martin One-77 will take centre stage at this year’s Show at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre.

The only Aston Martin One-77 in Australia and one of just 77 in the world, this vehicle is considered by many to be one of the most sought-after and expensive supercars on earth, initially costing over 1.2 million pounds.

Hand-crafted in England, the One-77 is billed by Aston Martin as its definitive sports car – a vehicle that epitomises everything Aston Martin is from technology, hand-craftsmanship of the hand rolled aluminium panels to the attention to detail. “I am very proud and excited that an Aston Martin One-77 will be on display at the 2012 Australian International Motor Show,” said Russ Tyrie, Show Director.

“The One-77 was first revealed to the world in concept form three years ago, and this year, Australians will be able to see one in all its glory after its owner has generously allowed for it to be on public display, only months after taking possession.”

A thrilling fusion of advanced technology and stunning design, the One-77 combines a carbon fibre monocoque structure and aluminium body panels with a 7.3 litre naturally aspirated V12 engine producing 559kW and 750Nm. The two door sports coupe achieves 100km/h in just 3.7 seconds and is capable of reaching speeds in excess of 350km/h.

“In the creation of the One-77, Aston Martin wanted to create a car closer to art than the automobile and it has certainly achieved that,” said Tyrie. “The One-77 is unique, it is like no other Aston Martin or supercar ever engineered and we are confident it will be a talking point of this year’s Australian International Motor Show,” said Tyrie.

The 2012 Australian International Motor Show will be held at the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour and will open daily at 10am from October 19 to 28.

Aston Martin DB5 Starring in James Bond’s Skyfall Movie - 16th February 2012

From Bondi Beach, Sydney, Australia to the UK, Hollywood and beyond, the world knows of the James Bond franchise, as well as his famous cars... especially the Aston Martin.

Australia's most famous beach is understood to be home to at least a dozen Aston Martin's, but we know some owners like to hide they away, rather than to show them off, with some locals preferring to hide their wealth these days.

A bit of history... It was the Aston Martin Silver Birch that featured in the James Bond movie “Goldfinger”.

It is considered to be the most famous car in the world. Ok, so the car has never received an Oscar or other movie award, the DB5 has continued on since Goldfinger to enjoy the spotlight in a number of James Bond movies.

1964’s Goldfinger movie spotlighted the DB5 as a complete spy control center. It sported an awesome machine gun, an ejector seat, chariot-style slicing wheel and a revolving license plate.
It went on to star in such great James Bond films such as Thunderball, GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies and Casino Royale.

007 just wouldn’t be the same with the appearance of such as famous co-star as the Aston Martin DB5. It has been seen on the latest James Bond movie set, shooting scenes for Skyfall. It will be the first time that the DB5 has appeared complete with super spy gear since Sean Connery manned the wheel in the movie Goldfinger.

The latest Aston Martin DB5 has kept its exceptional styling.

Under the hood quite a bit of work has been done. It hosts a DOHC straight six engine that gives more than 400 horsepower. Telescopic shock absorbers keep the drive smooth, and it can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 7.1 seconds.

Additional updates include new 15” wheels, Girling disc brakes and twin hydraulic brake servos. The Aston Martin DB5 Vantage received different camshafts and 3 Weber carburetors to further enhance its performance. This tie they have also added electric windows.

Finally, a convertible is also available with an additional steel hard top.

Collectors will be checking out both the car and new Bond movie very closely.
