2010 Aston Martin One-77Enlarge Photo
Fresh from its worldwide reveal earlier this summer in Europe, the 2010 Aston Martin One-77 supercar made its first Stateside appearance this weekend as the classic-car world readied for the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
Aston calls the One-77 its "definitive" sports car, and it's difficult to argue with that assertion. Not only does the One-77 sport the credentials of a shattering supercar--more than 700 horsepower, a 0-60 mph time of 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 200 mph or more--it's also finished to the extreme, with every surface given some sort of polish or treatment.
It's dazzling in person, from the massive 7.3-liter V-12's carbon-fiber shroud to the white leather and stitching that lines the two-seat cabin. Immense wheels with carbon-ceramic brakes have their own presence, and so do the headlights--up close, they're ferally shaped and shot with LEDs.
The Cosworth-tuned car will tour the world as it prepares for its first owners. Priced in Bugatti Veyron territory at nearly $2 million, this may be as close as mortals like us come to the race-ready supercar. Enjoy these live shots from Pebble Beach weekend--and read on this week as Motor Authority takes you for a first drive in the Aston Martin DBS Volante.
