The Aston Martin One-77
Dr. Ulrich Bez: It's living up. It's definitely something very special which is different from any other object in its refinement, in its proportion, in its detail but also in the whole composition. It's a great vehicle of all.
Marek Reichman: If you look at the very first sketch, this car is so close you could almost overlay the car next to the sketch which means that we haven’t compromised the designers’ thought and the engineers’ thought into the car at all. It's as we first intended.
Dr. Ulrich Bez: It's a very complicated bone check because to do a one-off, it’s probably easy. But to do 77 one-offs is more complicated.
Marek Reichman: It has been an incredible journey when you finally see the car moving as an amazing sound to the engine but there's a grace and a fabulous movement to the car when you see it on the track. It actually does make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up still.
Dr. Ulrich Bez: When everybody is of course excited about such a project because for most people, it is a one-off in their life to do something like this. Now it's all about the details, refinement, tearing it all in the overall composition. I didn’t think it demonstrates the quality of the two --
Marek Reichman: We've pushed the boundaries of what an Aston Martin can actually look like.

There's one single line that from any angle it looks perfect, both simple but complex at the same time.
Dr. Ulrich Bez: This car is everything to become a classic but at the moment, it's the most modern advanced car and it's not classic.
It is the car. It is the concept. It's the whole thing. It's the composition as a whole which is great.
Marek Reichman: There is a combination of power, brutality, grace, elegance which the car gives.
Dr. Ulrich Bez: Yeah, I see the beauty. I see the color. I the see the soul, I see the craftsmanship. I see the piece of art.
Marek Reichman: The car will remain a beautiful car way out into the future and that's how we will always approach design as Aston Martin.
Dr. Ulrich Bez: It is a life. It is much more than as --
