7.3-litre V12 Aston not quite revealed
2 October 2008

Aston Martin teased the Paris show crowds by partially-unveiling its incredible One-77 hypercar.

The £1 million super coupe’s front bumper and a single headlight were temporarily on display in three-dimensions for the first time.

The outlandishly sculpted, sharp front panels of One-77 looked like confirmation that Aston Martin’s design team has gone all out to create - as they put it - ‘automotive art.’

However, the One-77’s shapely lines are still obviously of the Aston Martin's family. The outline of the One-77s curvaceous haunches – shrouded under cover – revealed not only the supercars width but also its aggressive and planted-looking stance.

Huge brakes, lightweight aluminium forged wheels and extensive use of carbon fibre was also clear to see. We can’t wait to see the whole of this 7.3-litre V12 mega car in the metal – but we’ll have to wait for another motor show.
