It's been nearly nine months since Aston Martin first starting taunting performance car aficionados with teaser shots of its upcoming One-77 supercar. Finally, the first completed vehicle has made its way out of the marque's factory in the United Kingdom and over to the shores of Lake Como in Italy where it took part in the Concorso d'Eleganza. Apparently, it was rather well received.
Aston's brutally-styled beauty took home the Design Award for Concept Cars and Prototypes, garnering 30% of the total number of votes cast at the event in the process. Not only were the event's attendees the first to gaze upon a fully assembled One-77, they also got to hear it run for the first time ever.
Here's the best news: thanks to the wonders of YouTube, we all get the chance to hear the baritone grumble of Aston's carbon-ensconced 7.3L V12 engine. Interested? Click on past the break for the video.
