Aston Martin One-77 receives mysterious bulk order of 10 units totaling $17M



A mysterious car enthusiast has apparently bought ten Aston Martin One-77s for $17.7 million dollars (£12m / €14m).
While the company isn't saying anything, insiders have stated the buyer has specified a unique exterior color and cabin for each car. Perhaps the client, who is believed to be Middle Eastern, wanted one for each day of the week and three for holidays?
The One-77 is powered by a 7.3-liter V12 engine with approximately 700 bhp (522 kW / 710 PS). While detailed performance specifications haven't been released, a pre-production prototype hit a top speed of 220 mph (355 km/h).
With this massive order, which represents 13% of the total production run of 77 cars, only 12 One-77s have been spoken for.
