Aston Martin One-77 – Click above for high-res image gallery

If you have the money, influence and inherent coolness to purchase one of the 77 Aston Martin One-77 super mega cars, it would be a good idea to put in your order as soon as humanly possible. That's because while a limited run of 77 vehicles makes for a very exclusive exotic car club, one buyer may have made it even harder to join the sacred One-77 fraternity.

The Times of London reports that one buyer, believed to be of Middle-Eastern descent, has purchased 10 of the 77 super Astons. The buyer is reportedly picking up 13 percent of one of the rarest new rides on the planet, but the models will each be differentiated by color and interior trim.

The folks at Aston Martin aren't spilling the beans on who the buyer could be, so this One-77-hoarding mad man lucky dog looks to be shucking the spotlight, at least for now. The total price for the 10 One-77s is $17 million, but now that the market for the most exotic of Astons has just shrunk by 10 units, we're thinking that the secret owner's collection could make all the 7.3-liter V12-powered One-77s more valuable. Thanks for the tip, David!

      Apparently you missed the story this weekend of the buyer that spent $18 mill on ONE 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO... or earlier this month when someone reportedly bought a 1936 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic for $30-40 million.

      It's either Nicholoas Cage, or one of the oil companies is putting together a bumper car game with some petty cash for giggles during an off-site retreat for some lower level execs.

      "If you have the money, influence and inherent coolness to purchase one of the 77 Aston Martin One-77 super mega cars.."

      You just need money as I don't think there is anything cool about mid-east oil sheiks.

      Someone just paid $18 million for ONE Ferrari 250 GTO. While a single One-77 can't compare to that car's appeal, $17 million for 10 seems like a bargain.

      Sorry to be the party pooper, but the supercar industry relies on the wealthy Arab states to stay in business.

      However, with China and India starting to flash their cash about, the Arabian states no longer have the monopoly on ruthless acquisition of fleets of exotic cars... hence we can look forward to many more years of Aston Martin limited editions.

      Everyone is a winner.

      Must be nice to be rich.

      Quite a wise investment if you think about it. Imagine what these cars will be worth in 50 years...

        Ferrari produced 349 Enzos and hand picked their buyers. The cars retailed for around $600k and sold for over $1.2M on Ebay the following day.

        Wise investment indeed, although offloading 10 cars like this would take quite some time.

      I'm seriously in the wrong line of work here.
        • 4 Years Ago
        This isn't so much "wrong line of work" as it is wrong set of parents/wrong geological signifigance.

        But hey, don't worry. In 20-40 years, Oil will run out over there, and you'll be able to buy these for pennies on the dollar... as long as the area hasn't already been glassed over by Iran/Isreal.

        Yeah, where can I download the application to become a Sheikh?

      Man, like the song says, it really must be good to be a gangsta.

      Actually, the buyer paid $23 million for the cars. They did not want to sell such a large portion of the run to a single person but they could not turn down that price premium.

      BTW, The WSJ reported this on Feb 25.

        DAMN!!! I've been outed!!!

        **** awakens to the brutal and annoying sound of the alarm clock****

        It really WAS a dream.

        Yeah, but 10 of them? I guess his kids need to drive, too...
      • 4 Years Ago
      Seeing as theyre all different colors and trims, I wouldn't be surprised if it was the Rainbow Sheikh. He doss own quite a few Mercedes S-classes, each in a different color, with matching trim, and matching AK47 in the trunk.

      You can see the rest of his collection in Jeremy Clarkson's Motorworld - Dubai. Classic Jezza from way back.
