Aston Martin One-77- 11.07.08

aston0.jpgAston Martin has just launched its One-77 ~ only 77 in the production run… they are saying over 100 buyers had already signed up and put down a £200,000 deposit without even SEEING this £1.2m beauty… Everyone was teased with the appropriately referenced upskirt shots coming out of the Paris Auto Show, where they only revealed a portion of the car under a cover! Where are they ending up? Only six in the U.S. to be exact, with just five destined to stay in the UK out of the total production run of 77 (says autoblog). You must admit its mesmerizingly beautiful, the curves are absolutely stunning…

One-77 fuses advanced technology with stunning Aston Martin design to create possibly the world’s most desirable automotive art form. Based on a sophisticated carbon fibre chassis with a handcrafted aluminium body, this 7.3 litre V12 super car will deliver exhilarating performance for a strictly limited number of discerning customers.” Take a look at more sneak peeks of this luscious new design on the next page, and check out the video of what it’s all about.

So here’s where it gets really interesting ~ especially for our UK readers (or anyone who can be in the UK first week of Dec) ~ Aston Martin invited me to come out and tour their factory and see the car itself ~ unfortunately the timing is terrible and far too last minute as much as i’m dying to get out there! So, i thought i’d invite a reader to help cover it for me! SO, WHO WANTS TO VISIT ASTON MARTIN’S GAYDON FACTORY? Think you’re a perfect fit? Know a car lover with mad photography skills? More details on the next page after the pics and videos of this beautiful work of art. (I could stare at these for ages, i’m already jealous of whoever gets to go!)

Why 77?
“The number 75 just seemed way too obvious and normal,” chief designer Marek Reichmann told the Inside Line car website. “The number 77 was just two lucky sevens.”




Ok ~ So if you are interested, or you know someone who should be interested, here’s the deal ~ I need someone to go explore and enjoy the Aston Martin Gaydon Factory and cover it for NOTCOT, we need pictures! Lots of amazing pictures to share with the rest of us who can’t make it ~ you’ll go as our eyes and ears, and do a guest post on NOTCOT about your experience.

Email me at astonmartin@notcot.com with the following:
1) Why are you a good fit?
2) Tell me about your passion for cars (and automotive design), particularly Aston Martin
3) Links/Examples of your photography, and what camera/lenses you shoot with

While the details aren’t perfectly ironed out as to which day, we’re looking at first week of December, and will work the exact details out with Aston Martin when we find the right candidate. Please note, while travel costs for non-UK residents aren’t included on this one, i am open to the idea of someone who really wants this opportunity and is willing to travel there on their own.

Deadline to email me : November 14
(yes, the day 007 comes out in the US! Where we all get to see the Aston Martin DBS in action)

No font ~ that’s my handwriting ~ and i used a pen on paper. I’m traditional like that

----- jean/NOTCOT 08.11.08 03:28
