    Aston Martin unveils the first completed One-77 in Italy

    Apr 25th 2009

    Prominently featured on the Aston Martin stand on the first day of this year's Geneva Motor show was the rolling chassis of the very first One-77 prototype. By day two it had been be removed and replaced by the unfortunate Lagonda concept. The chassis had to be returned to the UK so that the bodywork and interior could be added. This week, the finished car had its coming out party on the shores of Italy's Lake Como, home to the rich and famous.

    The exterior was no surprise since we had already seen the styling buck and renderings, but this was the first time the finished interior had been shown. No doubt purchasers of the 77 examples will all have the opportunity to customize the finish, materials and color combinations before Aston Martin begins deliveries late this year.

  2. Is this the first ugly aston martin ever?
     
  3. I don't think it's ugly at all. It's just different do all their other identical designs (yet still incredibly similar).
     
  4. I gotta say, its grown on me. Not very much, but its not hideous anymore.
     
  5. i like it a lot. hope its performance matches its looks.
     
  6. It's a lot nicer as a completed article out in the open.

    Can't get past the price though, I'd rather just have a DBS/DB9/V8V
     
  7. I actually like the styling on this, definately a lil bit different than standard aston styling yet similar at the same time.

    The price tag is so outlandish thats id buy a DBS, then maybe place and order for a 670sv.
     
  8. it does not look like a 1.5 million euro car. not bad though, except for chrome rims, shitty seats, too much chrome on the sides, rear air diffuser too big. but overall a cool design i think.
     
  9. Not worth the money.
     
  10. I liked it from the beginning.
     
  11. Reminds me of a Jag.
     
  12. I was wondering when someone was gonna post about this, and how can people not like this car, wtf? If you look at the chassis it does look worth the money. I mean it's pretty much got Pagani level craftmanship. It'll also probably sound better than just about anything else.
     
  13. It's a front-engined GT car that looks pretty much like the other models in Aston's lineup but costs getting on five times as much. Is it gonna be five times faster than a DBS? Sound five times better than a v8 Vantage? Be five times as pretty as a DB9? It's none of those. And because it looks so similar to everything else in Aston's lineup, it doesn't feel five times as exclusive.
     
  14. Thats not the nicest colour tbh, I think it will look incredible in the flesh
     
  15. Since when is price directly proportional to performance? Ever hear of the law of diminishing returns? Even the Veyron isn't 5 times as fast as a Nissan Versa.

    So simliar to everything else in Aston's lineup? Come on, look at these pictures, read the EVO article. If you have to explain to someone who's supposedly a supercar fan why something with this level of engineering and craftsmanship is exciting, I think they're a lost cause.
     
  16. It sort of reminds me a TVR (silly engine, crazy interior), along with typical Pagani attention to detail and engineering. And that rear end is amazing. I wanna see it in a different color.
     
  17. don't like
     
  18. I like it, btw on the second pic what is that white car next to it?
     
  19. They really have to show some impresive performance figures to sustain 1.5 milion euro
     
  20. That shouldn't be too hard with a better power to weight ratio than the Murcielago SV.
     
  21. Damn....
     
  22. masterpiece theater
     
  23. Is it official ?
     
  24. 7.3l v12. same as what the TVR Speed-12 was working with <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A><A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A><A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
