Aston Martin One-77 supercar almost sold out

Aston Martin shook up the supercar world when they rolled out their super exclusive, ultra powerful One-77 with a price tag of roughly $1.87 million but over the course of the past year, 60 of the 77 examples being produced are already spoken for.

Inside Line has reported that are just 17 of the Aston Martin One-77’s left on the market and in addition to that, one of the most popular options chosen by One-77 buyers has been – another car. Aston Martin has begun offering their new Cygnet, which is little more than a luxury themed, AM built version of the Toyota iQ but even with a price tag around $30,000, the Aston Martin city car is a popular choice for devoted customers of the British luxury-performance brand. Then again, even though the Aston Martin Cygnet is basically just a rebadged version of a low-priced Toyota subcompact, an additional $30k added to a $1.87 million dollar supercar presents roughly a 1.5% price increase. This means that adding an additional car to your purchase of the One-77 is similar is relative pricing to adding a set of floormats to your average new car.

If you happen to have an extra $2 mil laying around, the Aston Martin One-77 combines exclusivity with luxury and performance attributes that are hard to match anywhere in the world. The sleek, sexy coupe is comprised of aluminum body panels wrapped around a carbon fiber monocoque chassis to keep the weight down - tipping the scales at just over 3,300lbs. This helps to make the most out of the 750 horsepower produced by the One-77s V12 engine and that power is directed to the wheels via an advanced 6-speed automatic transmission featuring manual shift controls. Since the One-77 is about more than just power and straight-line speed, the Aston Martin supercoupe features a carbon ceramic braking system with an advanced suspension setup utilizing stability control, traction control and adaptive features to make this one of the best handling cars in the world.

Considering that there are 17 Aston Martin One-77s left in the world (with no word as to whether or not any of those will be headed to the US), perhaps the British automaker will be kind enough to bring one to the 2011 Detroit Auto Show so those of us who likely won’t be able to spring for the $1.87 million supercar will at least get to lay our eyes on one before they are all purchased.
