“There will be cars coming out in this category soon, like the new Ferrari Enzo,” says Koenigsegg, “and we need to be ready for them.”
The cockpit sees equally thorough revision. The instruments directly in front of you are now full LED screens, with a combined rev counter and speedo in the centre, and ancillary gauges and graphs for oil pressure, water and oil temperature, fuel pressure and turbo boost clustered around it. It’s all crystal clear and beautifully designed. The centre console is also new, with elegant backlit switches beneath a main hi-res touchscreen. Here you can adjust functions like nav and audio, as well as car settings like gearshift and traction control. You can even adjust the wing mirrors from the screen. The whole effect is one of supreme high tech, absolutely cutting edge. Aston Martin, take note for your One-77.
