The most exclusive Aston Martin One-77

The most exclusive Aston Martin of the 'Gaydon era', One-77 was limited to 77 unique examples. Tantalisingly, the first glimpse the world got of the One-77 hypercar was a maquette of the new car at the 2008 Paris Motor Show, three quarters covered by a grey pin-stripe fabric cover with only a glimpse of the front right side coyly peeping out.

 

The full picture was revealed athte March 2009 Geneva Motor Show , where a metallic blue mockup and rolling chassis with its entire powertrain were on display.

The finished car made its bow in late April 2009 at the Concorso d'Eleganza Ville d'Este on the shores of Lake Como, winning the design Award for Concept Cars and Prototypes. Fusing advanced technology with stunning design, the million-pound, 7.3 litre V12 One-77 was revealed as the fastest-ever Aston Martin, with a top speed of 220 mph. It represents what is possibly the world's most desirable automotive art form, with an immensely rigid lightweight carbon fibre monocoque clad in a seamless bodyshell handcrafted from aluminium at its heart. With all 77 examples sold, production of One-77 was completed in 2012.
