Aston Martin One-77 wins award

The production Aston Martin One-77 supercar is revealed in Italy, and wins top design prize

The Aston Martin One-77 supercar has had its big public unveil in production form. Despite numerous concepts and display cars, dating back to the Paris motor show, this is the first time it has been seen in customer format. Just 77 will be made and Aston has confirmed that all of those have been bought, despite the car's £1.2million price tag.

Italy’s Lake Como was graced with the big unveil, the road-ready One-77 being displayed as part of the Concorso d’Eleganza car show with a fully hand-crafted interior and running powertrain, a Cosworth-developed 7.3-litre V12 pushing out around 730bhp.

And the reaction was positive, with the One-77 winning the event’s design award for Concept Cars and Prototypes. It grabbed over 30 per cent of the votes, fighting off seven other competitors including the Morgan Aero Supersports, Fisker Karma S, Rinspeed iChange, Zagato Perana Z One and Infiniti Essence – all big hitters from the recent motor show circuit.

It pleased Aston chief Dr Ulrich Bez, who said ‘the One-77 has proven itself as the most desirable automotive art form at its premiere today. We have achieved a new level of design and craftsmanship which has been clearly recognised by the public here in the homeland of design at Villa d’Este.’

Also picking up a prize was a Ferrari 250 GT Coupe Pininfarina (pictured in white). It won the award for best restoration. Ferrari Classiche completed its overhaul just a few days before the event, returning the car to its original condition that was seen at the 1956 Brussels Motor Show.
