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.

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

Re: Aston One-77: 60 of 77 sold

So Aston makes this 77 hyper-car and to compensate for its emissions they also include this Cygnet joke as a part of their fleet. So what exactly is the point?

Why not spend the time, effort, money, PR wasted on Cygnets/ 77s and direct them at their original line up to make them better, faster and pollute less. This way they would not have to dilute the brand or beg Merc for help!!

Is there any truth in the rumour that the lack of Cygnets is down to the fact that immigrants have been eating swans?
