Aston One-77 Revealed

The 2 million dollar Aston Martin One-77. They will only make 77 of them. Why you ask?- because that is all the tooling will tolerate without degradation. That is how precise the tolerances are.

Oh yes and if you know anything about mathematics the car was designed around The Golden Ratio- some say it is evidence that God exists since it is found universally in nature and science has proven that which is deemed as beautiful fits that proportion.

AMSTERDAM — Thanks to the Dutch Web site, we now have our first detailed look at the Aston Martin One-77, the supercar that was kept — mostly — under wraps earlier this month at the 2008 Paris Auto Show.

Aston is still running silhouettes of the car on its media Web site. In Paris, it teasingly pulled the car cover up to expose a little flesh, but not much more.

We brought you details on the car from the show, but were not permitted to photograph the entire vehicle.

So take a good, long look at the $2.1-million supercar that expects to challenge the Bugatti Veyron. It appears we won't have to wait till next year's 2009 Geneva Auto Show after all to see the complete One-77.

Inside Line says: Serves those cagey Brits right for being so coy at Paris
