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...

@ Mikko_Salvatore i guess you’re right.. that’s what you called greedy.. but it’s lovely to see this 10 One-77 running convoy.

This car is really amazing! Based on how it looks, car maniacs will go wild driving on this one. But how can we get wild if it is only limited. I hope the company will consider making more of this one of a kind car.

What’s that reaction? Of course we can’t help it coz’ it’s a good car after all. Although it’s too expensive to have a price tag of a whooping $1.4, the worth of the car is on the interiors and very comfortable to handle, that’s an Aston Martin One-77 for me.

Who in the world hangs a car as a piece of art? Cars were not meant to be hanged or displayed, they are meant to be driven. The one who ordered 10 cars must be some kind of a member of a royal family to be able to pay that much.

That is one lucky family. In my opinion, this is Aston Martin’s nicest car in terms of appearance.

well i guess he’s got a lot of money to spare, but IMO he’s to greedy to have 10 a limited edition like this one. he should think of the people who are craving to have a one 77.
