Production of the 77 limited-production run of the Aston Martin One-77 is underway and while we still don’t know for sure how many Aston has sold (it was reportedly sold out last year), one customer in the Middle East has purchased ten units. Yes, you read that right – 10 units at a price of $1.5 million for each One-77.
Why so many? According to reports from European media, the Middle East buyer want to purchase 10 units for his family. However, he gave Aston Martin one major condition – they have to have all 10 units completed by September 2010 and even though the production schedule has been set, Aston will abide by his stipulation. Why? Well, he transferred a total of $17 million to Aston as an incentive.
Of course, by now a lot of you are wishing that you were a part of his family.
Refresher: Power for the Aston Martin One-77 comes from a 7.3L V12 producing more than 700-hp. The engine is mated to a new 6-speed gearbox that allows the One-77 to go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds with a top speed of over 200 mph. Only 77 units of the One-77 will be made.
