The Aston Martin One-77 sells out before it has even been produced
15 October 2008

Aston Martin says the £1 million One-77 has already sold out, before the first car has been produced.

The company says that more than 100 wealthy buyers have expressed serious interest in the One-77, but that it will only build 77 cars.

Aston describes the One-77 as being an extremely rare piece of ‘automotive art’, with a carbonfibre chassis and power set to come from a 700bhp version of the company’s V12.

According to a leaked document that purported to be a sales document, One-77 buyers pay a £200,000 deposit to secure their car. Each version will be built to a customer’s exact specification, with a large number of custom options meaning that no two examples of the car should be the same.

One word: "desire and jelousy"

That's two and jealousy has an "a" in it.

All those bankers who bailed before the bank went crash have obviously got money to burn.

Where has all Japanese design went to?

£50 billion of your tax money buys a lot of over-priced carbon fibre.

But seriously, Gordon Brown, Alastair Darling, and the heads of RBS, Lloyds and HBOS have just ordered new toys. You don't think, nah, that would be unethical - bankers and pols never do that!

Eat the rich.
