Just 17 of the £1.2 million supercars remain unsold; buyers also opting for Cygnets

Aston Martin has sold 60 of its £1.2 million One-77 hypercars, out of the 77 units it will produce.

More than half of the buyers have also ordered one of the firm's Toyota iQ-based Cygnet city cars, usually in matching colours, to go with their One-77, insiders have revealed.

To help sell the remaining units, Aston is taking the car on a tour of Asia, visiting Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taipei and China.

The One-77 will be powered by the world's most powerful normally aspirated production engine, a 7.3-litre V12 producing 740bhp and 553lb ft.

It has already become the fastest production Aston ever, eclipsing the Vanquish by recording more than 220mph in testing; 0-60mph is expected to take around 3.5sec. Power is transferred to the road using a beefed-up paddle shift-only Graziano gearbox from the DBS.

Features include a carbonfibre monocoque chassis that helps to keep the One-77’s weight down to around 1500kg; active aerodynamics also feature. The One-77 rides on 20-inch forged alloy wheels wearing Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres.

"More than half of the buyers have also ordered one of the firm's Toyota iQ-based Cygnet city cars" Autocar.

Good news all round. One-77 owners can keep their precious beast in the hated garage while using the Cygnet for shopping trips, and when tired of it we get bargain luxury iQs to visit our Aston Martin dealer to drool over their cars. Recycling at its best.

It is a good result all round.The negative comments on the Cygnet have done no harm at all.small is the way to go it seems

They actually made the Cygnet? I thought it was an April Fools joke.

I'd wedge the V12 into the Cygnet and go chase Veyrons.

Take this to mean, the ones that have expressed an interest have been given a Cygnet free of charge for the wife. If was paying £1.2m for a car, I would want more than a set of mats and some mudflaps.

I'm sure it'll be handy for jump starting the proper Aston when the battery inevietably goes flat :-)

Correct.

Just read that the Sultan of Brunei has bought 10 One-77s! Not sure how many cygnets though... :D

Good to see that despite the seven figure price tag Aston still not having too many problems selling the One-77. Seems that they are going to be vindicated on the Cygnet too.
