After several teasers and a mock introduction at the Geneva Motor Show, Aston Martin has officially unveiled their highly anticipated One-77 supercar at the Concorso d'Eleganza in Lake Como, Italy.
Besides being shown for the first time in production trim, the gorgeous supercar was among one of eight entries up for the nomination of being voted the show's best concept and prototype. As expected, the One-77 ended up winning the prestigious Concorso d'Eleganza Design Award with more than 30% of the total votes cast.
The unveiling also marks our first glimpse of the new supercar's handcrafted interior which is loosely based on the DB9's cabin. A bold center console with premium metal accents dominates the cockpit as does the extensive use of carbon fiber trim. Elsewhere, the dash's contrasting pattern is echoed in the sports seats as they boast white leather upholstery with unique black mesh inserts.
Beneath the supercar's sexy hand-rolled aluminum exterior resides a massive 7.3-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine that produces over 700 bhp. While official technical and performance data wasn't released, Aston has previously stated that the One-77 will likely weigh about 1,500 kg (3,307 lbs) and be able run from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds before hitting a top speed in excess of 200 mph.
Conceived as an ultra-luxury road-going DTM style racer, the One-77 features a lightweight carbon fiber monocoque chassis and an inboard double wishbone suspension with Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve damping. Other performance equipment on the supercar includes a six-speed robotized sequential manual gearbox, a dry-sump oil system, carbon ceramic brakes, and specially developed Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires.
