The design department at Aston Martin has been generating gorgeous cars for quite a while now. In the unattainable supercar category, they have a few choices, but the rare One-77 is at the top of our list.
The car was first revealed at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show, sporting a huge 7.3 liter, naturally aspirated V12 pumping out 750 horsepower, wrapped up in a full carbon fiber monocoque chassis covered in aluminum bodywork designed by Aston Martin design studio head Marek Reichman. Production was discontinued in 2012 and only 77 examples were produced, the last few in very special "Q" configuration, Aston Martin's personalization program.
The curves and stance of this car are just phenomenally sexy. The Aston Martin signature portal on the front fender has been enlarged to extend deep into the doors, making the car seem even longer than it is. The wide tires announce the amount of power on tap, and the elaborate splitter speaks clearly about the speed to be experienced.
And of course, the Aston Martin bespoke interior delights all of the senses, combining traditional craftsmanship with state of the art design, simply lovely to behold and even better to experience. With a top speed of "only" 220 mph, the One-77 may not be as fast as the Venom GT or the Chiron, but it is still indeed a very Super Car.
