Aston Martin One-77: Ten, Please!

As if it wasn’t rare enough, the Aston Martin One-77 got even more exclusive, after a customer from the Middle East decided to take ten units for himself. Not only the 77 limited-production run got brutally sliced, but thinking at the $1.5 million price for each One-77, we are starting to hate the guy already.

According to several media reports, the Middle East buyer wants to purchase the 10 units for his family, who will most likely become “the One-77 klan.”

However, he has one major condition for Aston Martin, which it will have to comply with should it want to sell the ten cars. Aston Martin has to have all 10 units completed by September 2010, even though the production schedule has been set. Why would Aston Martin do such a concession? Well, it appears the buyer has already transferred a total of $17 million to the carmaker as an incentive.

Equipped with the new 7.3l, naturally-aspirated V12 powerplant, mounted 100 mm lower than in any previous V12-engined Aston Martin road car, the One-77 is expected to provide up to 700 horsepower. The top speed is rated at over 220 mph (354 km/h), with a 0-60 mph acceleration in just 3.5 seconds.

The two-door, two-seat sports coupe is based on an innovative new carbon fibre monocoque body structure and adopts new active aerodynamic technology. Moreover, the exterior design helped the One-77 winning the Design Award for Concept Cars and Prototypes at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in April 2009.
