These are the latest pictures of the Aston Martin One-77. They reveal the million-pound hypercar’s extreme aerodynamics in detail for the first time.
“It’s not all about power or being in a performance race with Bugatti,” said Aston boss Ulrich Bez. “It’s a fabulous, hand-built car that’s the pinnacle of what Aston Martin can achieve.”
Aston’s most expensive ever car does cost much the same as a Bugatti Veyron, though, at £1.02m (plus tax). >> See more pictures of the Aston One-77
Despite the Aston One-77’s apparent length, at 4576mm long it’s actually shorter than the 4700mm DB9. It is also lower than a Vantage, at 1223mm, and a whopping 1990m wide.
“Although the One-77 is two metres wide, it’s still got a lot of form in the shape, the waist is in and out, which gives it a very dynamic and elegant look,” said Bez.
The ultra-exclusive One-77 weighs just 1500kg, thanks to a carbonfibre tub, which will be built by an as-yet-unspecified Midlands contractor. Body panels will be handmade from aluminium.
