Aston One-77: on track
Posted: 28 May 2012
Peer into the car's cockpit and - unsurprisingly given the number of sensors elsewhere - it's full of wires. Two computers are dumped in the passenger footwell, measuring air-fuel ratio for each bank of cylinders, wires spewing forth in all directions. And the car's interior and bodywork is rough and ready, with bits of trim missing and no nod to aesthetics or comfort anywhere. The doors close with a hollow ‘thwank'. There is no handbrake. It is a pure mule, but all the more beautiful and wonderful for it. I ask Porritt what will happen to it eventually.
"Crushed," he says with a grin.
