Two Million Dollars In Motion

As the über-ridiculous Aston Martin One-77 approaches final production-readiness, watching the thing run hot laps is finally becoming as much fun as wrapping your head around its €1.4m ($1.9m) pricetag. Especially because we’re extremely unlikely to ever see one of these things on the street. According to Auto Motor und Sport, Aston has already received a $14m offer for ten of the One-77’s 77-unit production run, apparently from a single Gulf State collector. So unless you live in one of the tonier neighborhoods of Dubai, you’re unlikely to get any closer to the One-77’s 760 horsepower V-12 than this. Enjoy the taste, peasants.

      Sabine Schmitt could probably blow past in her Transit van.

    Buying ten will (almost) guarantee one will start and run.

    "Aston has already received a $14m offer for ten of the One-77′s 77-unit production run, apparently from a single Gulf State collector" Don't listen to the pundits. This is a bona-fide leading economic indicator about the certainty of plentiful long term oil reserves....

    For the sake of this things (admittedly great, without the spoiler) looks, I hope the Gulf states don't require a US style light-strip for overly wide vehicles.
