Poor Bugatti Veyron: it wasn't enough that the $1.4 million car was dethroned as the fastest production car on the planet, it's now not even the most expensive one ...
Here's the One-77, a $2.3 million hand-made coupe by Aston Martin:
Paying $2.3 million for anything that doesn't have wings is beyond excessive, but then, those few who get a One-77 aren't buying a car. They are, according to Aston Martin, buying An Experience. Autocar says buyers will be invited to the factory in Gaydon, where they'll meet with designers and engineers to develop the car to their exact specifications.
"It's a very special car for customers who want to take the bespoke experience to a higher level," company chairman David Richard told Autocar. "Every car will be entirely individual."
And bookies are taking bets on who would be the first to buy the car (so far David Beckham is the favorite!)
"Top speed is estimated at 220 mph and 60 mph arrives in 3.5 seconds.
Those figures are well short of the 253 mph and 2.5 seconds the Bugatti has hit"
Am I missing something here? If it's slower than the Veiron, then how did one-77 unseat Veiron as the fastest car?
