2010 Aston Martin One-77Enlarge Photo
The Aston Martin One-77 supercar is all about exclusivity. With a pricetag of $1.7 million and a limited production run of just 77 units, it’s easy to say that for most people, getting your hands on one is next to impossible.
However, for a mystery buyer from the Middle East, no less than ten examples of the One-77 are headed to his garage.
According to insider sources, ten One-77 supercars, priced at $17 million have been ordered by one buyer, each with a different exterior color and trim choice. It is believed that the buyer wants one car for each of his family members, as well as an additional example to be stripped and hung on a wall as a piece of art.
Aston Martin isn’t revealing any details but claims that 65 of the 77 cars have already been accounted for. First deliveries are expected to start at the end of the year.
The One-77's power unit is an extreme evolution of the V-12 engines fitted to the DBS, DB9 and new V-12 Vantage models. The brief for engine team was to take the V-12 as far as it could go, both in terms of output and weight reduction. The targets were a power output of no less than 700 horsepower.
