New pictures have surfaced online of Aston Martin’s sensational One-77 hypercar.

Along with these two new images, a document has emerged which purports to be a sales contract between Aston Martin and potential One-77 buyers.

There’s no way of verifying whether it’s real, but it does suggest new details about the car.

Excluding local taxes, the base price of the One-77 is claimed to be £1,050,000 – making it more expensive than a Bugatti Veyron. Selected customers can secure one with a £200,000 deposit, according to the document.

The leaked paperwork also states that the One-77’s engine is a 7.3-litre version of Aston’s V12, with around 700bhp on offer - not 650bhp, as was previously reported.

It’s also claims that the One-77 will have 550lb ft torque and that the gearbox is a six-speed automated manual unit.

And, as Autocar had previously reported, it’ll feature a retractable rear spoiler to aid aerodynamic downforce.

The One-77 is expected to use aluminium and carbon fibre extensively in production to keep kerb weight down to around 1500kg.

It’s brakes will be carbon ceramic and it will get adaptive suspension as standard.

For the time being, Aston Martin won’t confirm or deny any of these details about the One-77.

But with deliveries starting from the end of 2009, it won’t be long before we know more about the most opulent and fastest car the British brand has ever built.

Come on, over one mill?!?! This thing needs to be twice as good as the McLaren F1 was in its day (and arguably still is today) to justify that price...

When people pay these ridiculous sums for cars, I'm sure one of the things they crave most is obvious exclusivity. Surely nobody would pay over a million pounds to drive around in a (very) tarted up Vantage/DB9/DBS?

Thing is, all Astons look near-identical at the moment. They're going through the same corporate design allignment that BMW and Mercedes are often guilty of. It's bad enough having your £160k car mistaken for a £85k car, but a £!m car? You want that to wear its uniqueness on its sleeve.
