When Aston Martin introduced the enormously expensive One-77 hypercar on the brink of a global economic crisis, most journalists and sales experts had a good laugh.
A few years later, Aston Martin is still here, doing brilliantly and their One-77 has been such a success that they’re sold out. Almost.
We’re not talking a wide margin like the last time we heard Aston managed to sell off most One-77s. The limited edition fantasy car is down to a single car that’s yet to find a new owner.
That’s right, one. It’s one out of 77 but it’s still a rare deal. Just as the guy or gal who’d spend some 2 million dollars on a car which can’t hold a candle to anything in this price range.
A Bugatti Veyron, in GS form (the only type still available) will eat it everyday and a Koenigsegg Agera will do the same while giving you more thrills than being born.
Despite all these negative points, the British One-77 is said to be decently comfortable, is the prettiest of the bunch and has a very pleasant sounding 7.3 liter V12.
The 750 horsepower and 554 lb-ft of torque sure sound tasty but the six speed robotized transmission is just as big a pain as it was in Astons 6-7 years ago.
Already there’s some clips of one example stalling in full public view much to the owner’s embarrassment.
By the way, the last Aston Martin unsold is basically the last chance you get to order it to your preference. Otherwise, there’s reports of some 5-6 units being on sale as second hand models.
