Aston Martin One-77 wins top design award


Showing the complete interior and exterior for the first time, the Aston Martin One-77 has won the design award for concept cars at the Concorso d'Eleganza, Villa d'Este in Italy

Following the reveal of the drawings at the Geneva Auto Salon in March, the rolling chassis has since been completed by hand and the first complete car went on show at the weekend.

The public cast their vote for the best concept and prototype, and out of eight entries from around the world, the Aston Martin One-77 was voted the best in class with more than 30% of the votes.

Aston Martin Chief Executive, Dr Ulrich Bez said: "Embodying everything Aston Martin stands for; 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."

If you're one of the lucky 77 prospective buyers of the 7.3-litre, 700+ horsepower V12 Aston, it will reportedly set you back a whopping US$1.75 million (NZ$3.1 million).
