Tantalisingly, the first glimpse the world got of Aston Martin's One-77 hypercar was a maquette of the new car at the 2008 Paris Motor Show, three quarters covered by a grey pin-stripe fabric cover with only a glimpse of the front right side coyly peeping out. The finished car made its bow in late April 2009.
The million-pound One-77 represents what is possibly the world's most desirable automotive art form, with an immensely rigid lightweight carbon fibre monocoque clad in a seamless bodyshell handcrafted from aluminium at its heart. All 77 have now been sold.
