Aston Martin One-77 – $1.4 Million
Aston Martin is claiming that their new One-77 cannot be beat in the style department. And it’s no slouch performance wise either. It has a V-12 for heaven’s sake.
But back to the style for just a second.
For me, here’s the bottom line: It has too many lines.
Of course it’s a beautiful car. And of course I’m being picky. But there are just a lot of lines. The scoops on the side, the cuts in the front (which I’m sure are functional) and the big friggin’ grill. It’s all reminiscent of Mike Shanahan’s forehead.
It’s the luxury car equivalent of wearing a pinestripe suit, striped shirt, and striped tie. Can it be done? Sure. Can it be done well? Hard to do. Aston Martin does an amazing job with all the lines. On a scale of 1-10 it’s a 9.75. But the most beautiful car ever? Not quite. And in my opinion, the One-77 gets beat out by something Aston Martin already has on the street:
The Aston Martin DBS. An all out 10.
