Click above for a gallery of the Aston Martin One-77

Despite Aston Martin's efforts to keep the One-77 supercar under wraps, four images have leaked out and we expect more to follow in the coming days.

Viewed in profile, the One-77's silhouette is pure Aston, taking all the right cues from its predecessors and forming them into a slightly elongated and exaggerated form. The massive grille is an obvious nod to the Astons of yore, but the hood delves deeper than its DB9 and Vantage counterparts and benefits from four contoured strakes terminating into a set of air extractors. The creases that bisect the blacked-out headlamps and front fenders are pure aggression, and the vents aft of the front wheels ensure that the 700 hp V12 is kept cool at speed.

Out back, Aston's signature rump is present and accounted for, but a new taillight design that evolves the automaker's current offerings, a rear diffuser and a center-exit exhaust are all elements that we expect to see on future models.

Check the gallery below for all the details. Thanks for the tip, Alexander!

      It looks like a emo kid crying.

      Another beauty from Aston Martin. Another great example to illustrate that you don't need to be hideous to draw attention. BMW, are you listening? Acura, are you listening?

      The grill isn't a nod to old Astons, but to Zagato's Astons (and there are a few recent ones).

      wow nice zr1 flanks. not very a fluid, very much a mixup of old aston in the grill, future aston in the lights, zr1 behind the wheel in the flank, and AMV8 in the back. odd.

      Badass.

        EXACTLY the first word to come out of my mouth, ok at least in my head but you get the point. +1

        They have just ruined the look of supposedly a gentle car. Now it just George Clooney on steroid.

      Wow, some old guy is gonna look pretty hip in that Chrysler Firepower!

      A Reventon by Aston?

      Its frankly not attractive. The proportions aren't menacing, they're comical. Its probably a brand-stretch too far, to service those loyal collectors who want a Reventon-like uber-Aston in their garages.

      Unlike the Reventon, the Aston brand doesn't attempt to make connections to military-grade hardware. This is banal, and insipid.

      And have they not developed a proper grill since the Zagato DB4 GT? I mean thats a 1960s design! There has to be better alternatives out there.

        Ahhh yes, banal and insipid. Precisely the verbage I contemplated deploying.

        More seriously, the car's profile, tail and rear three-quarter angles are outstanding. The intakes in the nose and strakes in the doors do hack up the front end, though. I suspect they had to be included to keep the car from looking like a Vanquish refresh.

      Looks like the car's mascara is running because it is crying. :) Also, the side grill looks real cheap. Overall the car looks chintzy. Re-hire Fisker and get it right. I think Aston Martin is heading down the wrong styling direction.

      I don't know... I don't like it. Astons look so good because they have a simple formula and they stick to it. This looks like they took that db7/9/s look and tacked vents onto it. I don't like the crease that separates the rear fenders/hips from the sides, just let it flow. Really... I just think this is a failure--I see where they were trying to go, but no. Just, no.

      Just gaudy. Astons should be svelte and sleek. All those vents, harsh creases and sharp points make this awful. It's like an Aston mated with a hot wheels car, and the end result looks like someone went at a DB9 with a cutting torch. Just take a chunk out here and there, we should just call them "speed holes"!

      It might be fast, it might be aggressive, but it's not classy. It's not British. The thought behind it is clearly American. This thing should look like it's moving standing still and walking with poise when it's going 200mph.

      The flying buttress front fenders are odd. Besides that design feature, the car is gorgeous.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I thought the front fender was an interesting way to take in air, possibly handle aerodynamics. At the least, its interesting and original.

      When I saw this, there was a hole in the floor below my mouth.
