£1.2 million supercar gets its first public outing in the UK on a supercar run
30 April 2010

The Aston Martin One-77 is getting its first public outing in the UK today, taking part in a supercar run from London to Silverstone.

The run is designed to promote the FIA GT1 World Championship, which takes part at SIlverstone this weekend. The pictures of the One-77, which is the first production-ready example made by Aston, were taken in central London this morning.

The Aston One-77 is powered by a 7.0-litre V12 engine, which produces around 700bhp. Just 77 units will be built; each example costs just over £1.2 million.

In testing, the One-77 has already become the fastest Aston ever, recording more than 220mph.

The back end of this car is the most beautiful ever

Wow, that's one stunning car.

I'll be at Silverstone on Sunday, I hope the One-77 will be there so I can have a good look.

I surely can't be the only one that thinks this is hideous, can I?

You most certainly aren't. The DB9 looks perfect, the DBS is perfect (lighter, lither and faster than a DB9), but has too many openings in the bodywork. This is just awful. If we could have a carbonfibre DB9 with DBS suspension and One-77 running gear, I'd be happy.

I wouldn't exactly call it awful, I think it looks good. The front can look a bit odd but that's only because we're so used to seeing the DB9/DBS shape so often. I have to give credit to Aston Martin for trying to push the boat out a bit in their car design (albeit not that much though), otherwise they're gonna become another Porsche copy 'n' paste car maker. If I was paying a million+ for a car, it better look a bit different from the rest of the range!

What? Yer both mad! I'm going to have difficulty standing up for the next few minutes in case I embarrass myself! What stunning, stunning machine.

No, YOU're mad. Nobody sane gets THAT excited about what is still, at the end of the day, JUST A BLOODY CAR.

[/quote]So, what gets you really excited? Let me guess. Someone kicking a ball around a field? Or maybe a really good election debate? ; -)

Sorry in case you didn't realise, this is a car-related site, for people who LOVE cars (and get very excited about them.)

    The handsome Jaguar XF Sportbrake exhibits all the hallmarks that makes the saloon great, and with the silky smooth diesel V6 makes it a compelling choice

    The all-paw M550i is a fast, effortless mile-muncher, but there's a reason why it won't be sold in the UK

    The Volvo V90 is a big estate ploughing its own furrow. We’re about to see if it is refreshing or misguided

    Handsome entrant into the bulging small crossover market has a strong engine and agile handling, but isn’t as comfortable or complete as rivals
