MARKHAM, Ontario (December 6, 2010) – CarAdvice.com.au has a lengthy blog posting that showcases the production of the new One-77 from Aston Martin. It includes dozens of beautiful, high quality photos that show the many details of the car including the exquisite carbon fibre body structure provided by Multimatic.
The following is a short excerpt that describes one of Multimatic’s key roles in the project.
The carbon structure is hand made from 3500 individual pieces by renowned experts Multimatic in Ontario, Canada, before being shipped to the UK and the weave is flawless, whether or not it’s seen. The joint alignments are perfect, as though they’ve been fashioned by one of Rolls-Royce’s wood veneer craftsmen. “You won’t find this attention to detail anywhere else,” says Porrit and I have no reason to doubt him. Carbon fibre cross-bracing also helps keep the entire structure incredibly stiff, to the tune of 34,000Nm-per-degree and the lightweight material helps keep the car relatively light at 1620kg.
