Its not very often that you hear about a buyer who picks up $17M worth of cars in one order. Sources within Aston Martin revealed that one buyer placed one of their biggest orders to date, picking up 10 brand new Aston Martin One-77 vehicles, each valued at $1.7 million. The order accounts for 13% of the total production of the 77 cars. The buyer, who is believed to be of Middle Eastern origin, has specified a different color scheme and cabin trim for each car. The 10-car buyer isn’t the only one rushing to get the limited edition One-77. Aston Martin says that 65 out of the 77 cars have been already reserved.
Aston Martin has announced plans to bring the Lagonda to life. Much excitement has been backed up behind the Lagonda, mainly because it’s Aston Martin’s first crossover and looks absolutely stunning when revealed at the Geneva Motor Show. The Lagonda marks the 100th year anniversary of the brand. Aston wanted an outlet to expand beyond sports cars and GTs.
What do you think of the Aston Martin Lagonda? Do you think Aston Martin should expand their lineup of vehicles beyond sports cars and GTs?
After long anticipation, the Aston Martin One-77 has finally made its way to the Geneva Motor Show. Aston Martin first announced the vehicle back in August and since then we’ve only been seeing prototypes of the One-77. Although the One-77 isn’t fully completed, it’s possibly the best representation that we’ve seen so far. The first unit is due to be delivered to a customer before the end of 2009 with the remaining 76 units coming in 2010.
When it comes to Aston Martin, I guess we can say they all look the pretty similar to each other. Even so, the British manufacturer is still pushing out new models regardless. The new DBS Volante is the latest from Aston Martin, and although it isn’t much of a difference from the previous model its still a pretty amazing ride. The Volante is equipped with a 6.0-litre V12 with 510bhp and 420lb.ft of torque. This two-seater can reach speeds up to 62mph in the 4.3 seconds with the ability to reach speeds up to 191 maximum. Pricing is estimated to be around $242,000, which could possibly be the most expensive in the Aston Martin line-up.
