NGK – The manufacturer’s No. 1 choice
Aston Martin One-77
NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd is supplying spark plugs and Lambda sensors (manufactured under the NTK brand) for Aston Martin’s new flagship high-performance sports car, the One-77.
As the name implies, only 77 examples of the £1.2 million two-seater are being produced at the company’s Gaydon, Warwickshire, factory, making NGK’s role in its production even more prestigious.
It is understood that most of the cars have already been paid for and deliveries have started.
Brian Childs, Deputy Managing Director, NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd, said: “It is absolutely fantastic for NGK to be involved in the exclusive One-77 project by supplying Aston Martin with our industry-leading spark plugs and Lambda sensors.
“The One-77 is Aston Martin’s iconic flagship model so for us to be selected is testament to the quality of our products and the unrivalled reputation of NGK with the world’s leading vehicle manufacturers.”
The One-77 is powered by what is claimed to be the most powerful naturally aspirated road car engine in the world today.
The 7.3-litre V12 engine has been certified at 750bhp and 750Nm of torque, giving it a 0-62mph figure of under 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 220mph.
