Aston Martin One-77 on Megafactories ignores Canadian connection

As many of you know by now, the Aston Martin One-77 is a glorious piece of gear, no question about it. You know they were officially sold-out as we reported last April, and technically should have been renamed the One-76 after this serious wreck in Hong Kong in May, but what seems to get lost in all this fame is the car's strong connection to us here in Canada.

Believe it or not, it seems Aston Martin decided to call on its trusty Canadian ally when it came to creating the One-77's carbon fiber monocoque chassis and suspension. Multimatic Inc. out of Markham, Ontario has been working with Aston Martin on a number different projects for over 10 years now and were more than happy to cross over some of their Red Bull F1 building knowledge to assist in the creation of the One-77.

Sadly, National Geographic Channel did not address this fact one bit during their 45 minute long episode of Megafactories examining the production of Aston's hypercar. Instead the entire process is painted as a vastly British production, when the very structure of the car is good ol' Canadian know-how. It's a shame that NatGeo didn't dig a little deeper and uncover yet another example of us trusty Canadians stepping in to help the Brits out in yet another obstacle.

Megafactories did the same thing with the Dodge Challenger. The entire episode was in the Brampton, Ontario Chrysler plant where every 2008-09 challenger was made and all they mentioned was "the Brampton plant" near the end of the episode. I think this instance is even worse then the Aston because the ENTIRE car was built in Canada, and they didn't even mention it.
