"Dirty Shirley" Aston Martin One-77 spy shots – Click above for high-res image gallery

If you're thinking, "This car looks familiar," it's because we've seen it before. The Aston Martin One-77 continues to tease us with its beauty, power and exclusivity, and our spies have caught the bronze test car out on the Nürburgring once again. This time, though, One-77 isn't its only name.

Whoever Dirty Shirley is, she should be honored to know that her name has been given to Aston's super-rare One-77. Even so, if this name is just Aston's way of getting closer to its prototypes, so be it, because honestly, we can't think of a more appropriate name.

For the sake of drooling, we'll remind you yet again that only 77 of these darlings will be made, packing a lordly 7.3-liter V12 good for over 700 horsepower. Top speed is somewhere north of 220 miles per hour, and the whole thing retails for a lofty $1.8 million. Stay dirty, Shirley.

      Still I will take the DBS and donate the rest of money.

      Sounds like a name Vettel would give to his car.

      "Dirty Shirley" is "Dirty Diana's" sister ....

      I would pay 1.8 for this car. I can't think of another car that I would. I love the the lines of the hood, the front wheels reaching as far forward as they can absolutely screaming to go faster. Ought to cruise very nicely at 175, eh? We need some audio of that motor - anybody got any? All I have seen is the 'super low speed' lap they did a couple months ago. And "Dirty Shirley"? Those crazy Brits... taking a jab at the huns across the channel and their puny little SLS AMG.

        ah yes, (of course,) but do you think a Kuwaiti Sheikh named the car?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Am I the only person who doesn't astons? They don't look that good. their engine note is grating and they are garage queens.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Yes, you are. Sorry.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Astons sounds like some sort of disability. I mean if it was, I'm sure I wouldn't like it either.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I do like this car as it is but I'm getting sick of it already. It needs to hit the streets already!

      FYI: Improper use of "begging the question"
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Begging_the_question
        • 4 Years Ago
        Oh, please. The fact that the English Language is changing doesn't make it worse, it just means it 's getting different. The truth is, more people would think the way "begs the question" as used here would be a correct way to use it than would think it's some sort of logical fallacy. I ask this simple question: why can't "begs the question" mean "raises the question" while "begging the question" mean "a request for the beginning or premise." I think those usage commentators mentioned in the wikipedia article can "stuff it."

      generaters on each front wheel, propeller generater , and of course solar panels eliminate the need to recharge , all this in a medium to full size automobile

      That's a V8 Vantage under a One-77 body.

      So is Bond going to drive this next, or what?
        • 4 Years Ago
        I hope not because there was a little too much car carnage (sp?) in the last Bond movie with the DBSs... it'd be pretty tough to risk destroying (or severely damaging) a $1.8MM car.

        It would be cool, but just too expensive of a risk during production, IMO.

        I've seen tons of photos now of this AM, I'd like to see one in person, I can't tell how big, small, wide it really is. Because DB9/S look like sleds in person, I'm curious how this one appears.

        And all the people knocking the design and looks of this car, I don't disagree that there are some different lines, shapes, and proportions on this car, but it's certainly not ugly by any means! All these $500K+ cars are non-traditional style, I would hope a car that costs this much doesn't share too much design with their cheaper brethren.

        IMO, this thing looks just plain awesome!

      ooppps typo. I mean to say "that thing is fugly"
        • 4 Years Ago
        the car really is ugly , it looks like a riced DBS.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Some say the Stig never makes typos because he connects to a computer using a diagnostic code reader, and that if he does make a mistake the English language is wrong. All we know is, thestig isn't the Stig.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I just don't get why they never put the actual production lights on the Mule-77s.
        • 4 Years Ago
        It's no wonder they fired you, with comments like that...
        • 4 Years Ago
        I've read your comment and then looked at the photos several times over...
        You must be looking at a different photo to me, or you're mentally disabled.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Okay, I know looks are subjective.. but you need to get real.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Shirley you can't be serious...
        • 4 Years Ago
        They are, and don't call them Shirley...
