Context. The CoRoT  space mission routinely provides high-precision photometric measurements of thousands of stars that have been continuously observed for months. Aims. The discovery and characterization of the first very massive transiting planetary companion with a short orbital period is reported. Methods. A series of 34 transits was detected in the CoRoT  light curve of an F3V star, observed from May to October 2007 for 152 days. The radius was accurately determined and the mass derived… Expand
