10 Aston Martin One-77 Supercars Sold to Single Buyer for $23 Million

http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2...3-million.html

For most people in the world, getting hold of a very expensive and very limited edition Aston Martin One-77 supercar has its obstacles. The 1.7 million dollar price tag is a start. Then there’s the fact that Aston has said it will only built just 77 of the exotic beasts.


But proving that money most certainly talks, one individual has decided to purchase 10 (yes 10) One-77s. According to a report on TopSpeed, the Middle Eastern buyer purchased the vehicles for his family for a cost of $23 million. At the 1.7 million price tag, that leaves room for a several million dollar tip






























Like the McLaren MP4-12C or Lexus LFA, the One-77 is made using a carbon fiber monocoque to keep weight at an absolute minimum – just 3,300 lbs. Power comes from a 7.3-liter V12 making 750-hp. The car’s top speed is rated at at least 220 mph.

Then people probably wouldn't care about it and we would see threads like "stop talking about 335i vs. AM One-77"

Is it just me or is this not a great looking Aston. Don't get me wrong, its a fantastic car but the body looks too busy with all of the vents. Even if I had the money, I'd buy a DBS and put the rest towards 5 or 6 other super cars.
