Aston Martin has whetted the appetite of sports car fans by releasing pictures of the new One-77.
The latest model from the British marque is described by the company as "possibly the world’s most desirable automotive art form", and integrates the latest automotive technological developments into a car with a typically stunning Aston Martin design.
The One-77 has a carbon fibre chassis and an aluminium body, and its 7.0 litre V12 engine looks set to ensure it has almost unmatchable performance when it comes to acceleration, speed and power.
Perhaps the one downside is that only a limited number are due to be made available – and as there is likely to be a lot of interest many potential customers look set to be disappointed.
Aston Martin was founded in 1914 by Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford, who aimed to build sports cars with a unique and instantly recognisable character.
Other recently released Aston Martins include the V8 Vantage Roadster, unveiled at the 2006 LA Motor show, and the Production DBS, which was launched at the 57th Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
