Aston Martin One-77
Together with the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento, my other highlight of the 2012 Sydney Motor Show was the stunning Aston Martin One-77. Limited to only 77 cars, one of them made its way to Australia and makes the Queensland streets a whole lot nicer.
The owner kindly agreed to have the car on display at the Sydney Motor Show and I’m sure a lot of people would have visited the Motor Show just to see this car! Rumours are that one of the 77 One-77’s was totalled in China, leaving only 76 cars on the planet.
Understandably, the owner was not keen on having everyone get too close to the $2,7 million dollar car and it was blocked off for anyone to get near. Unfortunately this made it a bit harder to photograph and even on the press day I couldn’t get any closer. Nevertheless I did spend quite a bit of time around it to get some shots and to just stare at it with my jaw on the floor.
What a brilliant car.
“To create a car closer to art than the automobile. That was the aim” Marek Reichman, Director of Design.
The one-77 is the culmination of this endeavour. A car sublime in every detail.
Aston Martin has a rich heritage of craftsmanship; one-77 builds on this, seamlessly blending the highest calibre of contemporary engineering with the craft and beauty of the artisan’s work. It is the very essence of Aston Martin.
One-77 fuses advanced technology with stunning design to create possibly the world’s most desirable automotive art form.
“one-77 expresses all the ingenuity that Aston Martin has acquired in recent years. It is the culmination of all the beauty and emotion that we can bring into the car and by this, it is an expression of what Aston Martin stands for” Dr Ulrich Bez, Ceo Aston Martin
