This isn’t just any Aston Martin One-77, this is the original prototype that attended events around the world, and I filmed over a decade ago! I’m with ArtVanDelay in Arizona to take in all the details of this unique car, wrapped in satin chrome, before getting behind the wheel!
It’s crazy to think that I first filmed this car in the summer of 2011, almost 12 years ago now, the very One-77 factory prototype that was used for media and activities all around the world and have seen numerous times around the world. However, today I’m with the new owner, James from @artvandelay to find out all about it before heading out for a ride and drive.
There were originally 77 One-77s built for customers, with the most powerful naturally aspirated engine in the world at the time and a glorious soundtrack too from that 7.3l NA V12 built by Cosworth. While a number have been involved in incidents along the way, the majority of the prototypes that were built have gone onto other projects like the Vulcan prototype and one-off Victor, with this car moving on to a VIP Aston Martin customer.
It’s now treasured in James’ possession, where he has created a full record of the car’s history, compiled numerous documents and magazines that show part of its life, and even sourced a set of the shoes that were gifted to media attending events back at the time.
