“I’ll take ten One-77s, ta”

Has a mystery Middle Eastern buyer ordered TEN of Aston’s £1.2m hypercar?

Aston One-77

It’s only a rumour, but it’s a mighty good rumour. Media reports this week suggest a mystery buyer has ordered ten Aston Martin One-77s for a combined total in excess of £10 million. Aston won’t confirm the rumours, but...

Ten One-77s? Ten? Or, if you prefer, 13 per cent of the hypercar’s total production run. Or 7,000bhp. Or 120 cylinders. Yowch.

Details of the mystery buyer remain entirely mysterious, but it’ll come as no surprise he’s believed to be of Middle Eastern origin.

Aston confirmed recently that 65 of the 77 cars are already spoken for, but it’s not clear whether that includes the hefty order from our mystery man. Or whether he even exists.

Snaffling a significant proportion of one of the world’s most exclusive cars might seem a bit, well, greedy. But we shall say only this: that’d be one hell of a taxi fleet.

Have a look at our video of the One-77 heading out on London… and then imagine 10 of those monsters in a row. Noisy...

Now share it...
