Video: One-77 hits Silverstone

Watch our exclusive video of Aston’s 700bhp, £1.2m hypercar on the new British GP circuit

As we might have mentioned just a couple of times, TopGear chased an Aston One-77 all the way from London to Silverstone last week.

What we might have neglected to mention before is... this. Once we arrived at Silverstone, we cleverly affixed a camera to the windscreen of said One-77 with superglue and chewing gum, and convinced Aston's chief engineer Chris Porritt to set off on a couple of gentle maps of the new Grand Prix circuit. Just so you can learn your way round ahead of the British GP on July 11.

It's a gently paced sighter lap, we confess, but that's good news (and not just for our insurance-people): more time to get to grips with the new complex, and more time to listen to that glorious 7.3-litre V12 warbling its way round Silverstone.

Click the video below... and make sure you've got your speakers turned up.
