Rumors of its unavailability have been greatly exaggerated.
Not long after Aston Martin announced the very limited production supercar called One-77, we got word that there were 100 orders for the car limited to 77 units. Yeah, well um, that’s not so much true (c’mon we’re not exact CNN here people.) Aston actually got 100 people who expressed interest in the car, but that doesn’t equal sales (just because you can write a letter to Danica Patrick, doesn’t mean she’ll date you.) So there are still a few cars left, and we’re still single.
We expect the One-77 to be powered by a 7.0-liter V12 engine that delivers over 700 hp and over 550 lb-ft. of torque. The 0 to 60 mph sprint will be made in 3.5 seconds, while top speed should go up to 200 mph. The full price of the car is about £1 million. Thanks to current rates in the dollar’s favor, it will make the car a steal at around $1.4 million.
So those select few who still think a few million dollars is considered “mad money”, Aston Martin will gladly take your £200,000 towards a new One-77. Don’t try that with Danica, she may beat you like you blocked her in pit lane.
