I recently had the pleasure to attend a talk by the lead designer/mechanical engineer for the new Aston Martin Vanquish on how the shared platfor was re-engineered for each model in the lineup. It was a fascinating talk and this, unbelievably, was where the talk was held. In the most spotless service area I have ever seen. It housed such gems as a mint DB5, DB7 and multiple DB9s. But the icing on the cake was 4, yes four, One-77s quietly and unassumingly tucked away in a corner of the workshop. A genuine jaw-to-the-floor moment upon realising what I had seen.

Anyway i’m getting distracted. Mystery car. I could name each and every car in the workshop, bar one. The one under that pesky green sheet. I am completely at a loss.

Hope you can help!

Ssssooo Hoons, what is it?

  • bravenrace

    I think there's a car under there.

  • CABEZAGRANDE

    Don't know why it'd be in an Aston shop, but the size and shape look Fisker Karma to me.

    • CABEZAGRANDE

      Profile looks like it could be the new Vanquish too.

    • Darthzapato

      I'm with cabeza. I see a Karma every day at my place of work, so the silhouette is screaming Fisker to me. Long nose, short rear.

  • danleym

    Looks like a DB9R to me.

    I think its about to rob a bank

  • Scandinavian Flick

    It's a fleshed out concept car for the new installment of Ridge Racer.

    At a glance, the brain says Maserati Gran Coupe or a new Viper.
    The spoiler would be a problem in both cases.

    • CABEZAGRANDE

      The more I look at it, the more I'm thinking you're right with the Maserati guess. Looks like a GranTurismo to me.

  • brock

    Its another one-77

    What about a V12 Zagato?

        Surprised Zagato is surprised.

      • Vairship

        I didn't know A-M built a 370z…

    • CABEZAGRANDE

      I had that thought as well, but the car under the sheet seems to have a longer nose that's thinner where it meets the cowl than the Zagato is. The tail also appears to taper off quicker on the sheet car, as it appears to have a little ledge behind the greenhouse and the Zagato really doesn't.

  • GregKachadurian

    My vote goes to it being another One-77. The low profile, long bonnet, and the roof line seem to match up.

  • racer139

    Did astin ever build a gt-3. why yes I think they did its got the length but no surf board spoiler on the back.
