OK, there’s unfair, and then there’s totally unfair. We know that theAston Martin One-77 is limited to only 77 units, so, obviously, production is limited, to say the least. But here’s the really outrageous part. An Iranian shiek recently placed orders to buy 10 units of the One-77. That’s right! 10! That’s like 13% of all that’s ever going to be made. Not that we had any chance of throwing away seven digits of money but still. What makes this even more unbelievable is that the buyer apparently bought the cars for his "family."
When the customer made his demand (10 cars delivered by September), you can imagine skepticism from the guys from Aston Martin who said that the whole transaction might be impossible. Undaunted, the beyond wealthy buyer wrote a cheque for $17,000,000, which obviously, was enough moolah to change Aston Martin’s mind. As a refresher an One-77 costs $1.4 million.
Oh, and apparently, there’s more. There is another guy who asked for two One-77s: one to drive and one to hang on the wall as a piece of art.
If we only we had these kinds of problems...
