A very lucky gentleman has ordered 10 Aston Martin One-77 supercars, buying up 13% of the entire supply of Aston’s $1.7 million supercar. The buyer, believed to be from the Middle East (where else) has apparently ordered different colour combinations for each car.

Aston Martin has revealed little else about the transaction, but has said that 65 of the 77 cars have now been sold. The One-77 will hit 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, and features the company’s most powerful V12, a 7.3L unit capable of putting down 750 horsepower. The One-77 also features inboard, pushrod-activated shock absorbers, something typically seen only on LeMans cars.

No word on whether James Bond will be seen driving a One-77 in the upcoming Bond film, but Daniel Craig, who plays the British superspy, famously ordered a Lotus Evora upon the vehicle’s unveiling. Perhaps its time for 007 to switch to another British marque if all 77 cars are suddenly spoken for.
