1.2million for an Aston Martin One-77? Ten units for me please!

The Aston Martin pictured above is the very limited edition One-77. This car has a front mid-mounted dry sumped 7.3liter V12 producing 700bhp and also 750Nm of torque. It has a Rear mid-mounted 6 speed Automated Manual Transmission with Auto Shift Manual/Select Shift Manual (ASM/SSM) electro-hydraulic control system. It has a carbon monocoque body structure and an aluminium body. It has carbon ceramic brakes and a race car style pushrod suspension system too. In short, this car is a fantastic piece of engineering work and all 77 production units have been spoken for.

The price for such a limited run car is 1.2million. There must be no such thing as a global economic recession as Aston have basically sold all of them. When displayed at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show someone asked if they could get a discount if they bought two units of it by paying 2million for two units. Then there is this amazing piece of news.

According to a report, a source in Aston Martin had leaked information that a mystery customer from the Middle East has bought ten units at one go. Ten units is a measly 12million to this chap. He has done the typical Arab oil tycoon thingy by specifying different colour and trims schemes for each car. That means that he could rotate using his One-77 according to the colour of his suit or his robe.

The One-77 has been manufactured to rival the Bugatti Veyron and Lamborghini Reventon, which started the trend of 1milion plus supercars. But I don't think that even the first, and still the fastest, Bugatti Veyron managed to get a customer buying ten at a go.

The One-77 has a top speed of about 220mph and a 0-60mph acceleration time of 3.5 seconds. It IS the most extreme and expensive Aston Martin on sale today.
