Aston Martin has released the first image of its newest flagship – the limited edition One-77. Details are scarce, but the One-77 will be powered by a hand-built 7.0-liter V12 nestled inside an aluminum and carbon fiber chassis. 0-60 times are estimated at 3.5-seconds, with a top speed cresting 200 mph.

77 examples of the £1 million coupe will be produced and customers will be able to customize the bespoke supercar to meet their individual tastes. The One-77 will be revealed later this year (Paris?) and will go on sale shortly afterwards.

This will be the first all-new vehicle from Aston Martin produced after the brand was sold by Ford to a group of investors spearheaded by Prodrive's David Richards. We're also curious to know if the One-77 will play a part in Project Alligator, the rumored collaboration between Aston and Mercedes-Benz. All details will be revealed in due time. Until then let your eyes feast on the only image we have of the upcoming One-77 supercar.

Aston Martin has released a snapshot of the stunning new One-77; the ultimate creative interpretation of the renowned British marque.

Based on a sophisticated carbon fibre chassis with a handcrafted aluminium body, this 7.0 litre V12 super car will deliver exhilarating performance for a strictly limited number of discerning customers.

      I thought ZR-1 Vette as well at first, then read the Aston remarkes, yep see them as well, as the Firepower. Everybodys right, still it comes down to another car I can't afford :).

      Looks like the transformers version of the vette.
      • 6 Years Ago
      i still prefer the reventon.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I'll tell what's fishy...the Aston pic is embargoed until 0.01am UK time Friday morning - that's 81 mins from now...

      Surprised no-one saw this already: Elongated Chrysler Firepower?
        • 6 Years Ago
        someone actually did, the chrysler was based on an aston to begin with. but design stealing is all to common place-Ian Callum's latest designs for jaguar and fisker where just astons, and his artega's just a porsche.

        either way aston don't ring my bell... i'd much rather buy a bugatti veyron and and buy a nice country house with the money left over :p

      It certainly falls on the reventon side of the value scale... Neat looking but not worth it imo.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Looks like the car from that knight-rider knock off... Viper?
      • 6 Years Ago
      This new car is not so cool for me...
      • 6 Years Ago
      Honestly, how come no *affordable* automaker comes out with a car that has the Aston-Martin shape?

      I'll take a V4, FWD camry solara if it looked like this. Is it really that difficult to make attractive cars?
        • 6 Years Ago
        Where would you get a V4 engine from?
      • 6 Years Ago
      this looks like the vette concept to me
        • 6 Years Ago
        Get your vision checked sir.
        • 6 Years Ago
        No, he's not blind. He's obviously not the first to notice the resemblance either. It looks quite similar to the Transformer Vette.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Chave-mobile. Looks like a Vanquish (the ugliest of Aston Martins) with some swoopy creases in the door. The entire Man U squad just put down deposits.

      I think that Bugatti started this and Lambo cashed in as well. Now every big name sports car nameplate is going to make some tarted up version of their line to sell to people with lots of money but no sense.

      I'm sure it's a great car and fast and all that crap. But the Bugatti is a one of a kind vehicle. It is probably the fastest gasoline powered vehicle the world will ever see roll from a production line. It is, in a word: special.

      This is just a nice Aston.
