It's not too late to own the last new, $1.8-million Aston Martin One-77

It is not too late to purchase one of Aston Martin’s 77 supercars. In fact, you still have the chance to own the last Aston Martin One-77. According to Mark J. Tillman, Aston Martin manager at Aston Martin Tampa Bay, there is still one pre-built, new Aston Martin One-77 available for purchase. It is one of the five to eight cars slotted for the United States, and he does not expect it to last long. Being the last One-77 doesn’t make it number 77 of 77. As collector cars usually go, the first and last are always the ones that grow in value the most quickly, so those were the first to be snatched up when Aston Martin sold the build numbers individually.

Tillman was unable to release the build's exact number, colors, options, or price. But, with a base price of 1,150,000 British pounds, or, as of this writing, nearly $1,850,000, we imagine it could easily surpass $2 million.

Aston's V-12 Zagato to appear at Frankfurt

2012 Aston Martin V-12 Vagato

The new Aston Martin V-12 Zagato production car will be appearing at the Frankfurt Motor Show alongside the One-77 supercar and the recently launched Virage and V-8 Vantage S.

The car pictured is one of the two that will be on display. It features a classy green finish and a full aerodynamic package including front splitter, dive planes, rear diffuser, and large spoiler. The car, nicknamed "Zig" by the factory team, was outfitted to compete on Nurburgring.

Based on the V-12 Vantage and wearing handcrafted aluminum and carbon fiber body panels, the Aston Martin V-12 Zagato has been cleared for a limited production run beginning in the second half of 2012. Squeezing in between the flagship One-77 and the DBS, the V-12 Zagato will be priced at £330,000 or approximately $528,000. Limited to 150 units and being sold on a first-come first-served basis, the V-12 Zagato is the work of Italian coachbuilder Zagato and pays homage to the 1961 DB4GT Zagato.

India gets luxury marques and plenty of sticker shock

Lamborghini, Ferrari, Maserati, and Aston Martin have all recently announced that they will open new showrooms in two of India’s wealthiest and most populated cities. Unfortunately, at least for the rich people that reside there, the cost of luxury is much higher in India. Federal taxes on imported cars are more than 100 percent of the car’s retail price. Despite some sticker shock that could nauseate some wealthy Americans, India’s growing wealth equals a great opportunity for these luxury marques.

Lamborghini has held a stake in India since 2006, when Exclusive Motors started importing cars into the country, specifically into the city of Delhi. The dealership in Delhi will now compete against a new dealership in Mumbai from AutoHangar, which owns the principle Mercedes-Benz dealer in the same city. The two dealerships will contend for the 8–10 Aventadors that Lamborghini has reserved for the country. The new Lambo flagship will fetch approximately 40,000,000 Indian rupees, or a face-slapping $900,000.

Lamborghini Aventador

Unlike Lamborghini, this is Aston Martin’s first push into the country’s luxury marketplace. Aston Martin held a ceremony just days ago to celebrate plans for two new dealerships to be run by Infinity Group. The entire Aston Martin range except the Cygnet will be up for grabs through dealers in Mumbai and Delhi. Like the cars from Lamborghini, prices may shock some Americans. For example, the Aston Martin Vantage will fetch 13,500,000 Indian rupees, or approximately $305,000; the new four-door Rapide’s price will equate to nearly $500,000; and the rare One-77 will cost 200,000,000 Indian rupees, or approximately $4,520,000.

Like its competitors, Ferrari hopes to be selling news cars out of Delhi and Mumbai in the very near future. Unfortunately, its range will cost just as much: a California will cost 22,270,000 Indian rupees, or approximately $500,000; a 458 Italia will run 25,660,000 Indian rupees, or approximately $580,000, and the 599 GTB will require 33,710,000 Indian rupees, or nearly $760,000. The cars will be offered through the Shreyans group, which will also be working with Ferrari’s sister brand, Maserati, to bring the GranTurismo, Quattroporte, and GranCabrio to India this year.

India, like China, experienced massive GDP growth in 2008 and 2009 when other parts of the world went into decline. As a result, the number of high-net-wealth individuals—individuals with investable assets of $1 million or more, excluding primary residence, collectibles, consumables, and consumer durables—grew by nearly 51 percent.

The Aston Martin One-77 showcased by 750 twinkling lights

At $1.87 million, the owner of an Aston Martin One-77 does not simply pick his new ride up at the local dealership. Instead, he (or she) is treated to a tour of the factory, including an unveiling of the car they will be taking home featuring 750 twinkling OLED lights. Sixty of the 77 units are spoken for and we cannot imagine a single owner that will not jump at the chance to obtain their vehicle at the factory. Read the whole story at CarAdvice.com.au.

Aston Martin bumps One-77's horsepower figure to 750

Aston Martin has always referred to the One-77’s output as more than 700 hp. But as full production status draws near, Aston Martin has come clean and is promising a new higher figure of 750. Along with news of the additional horsepower and verification of the car’s previously claimed 553 lb-ft of torque, Aston Martin also announced that the first units will go on sale next year with an asking price of $1.5 million dollars, a little lower than the $1.7- and $1.9-million figures originally being reported.

With the new 750-hp announcement, Aston Martin says the One-77's 7.3-liter V-12 engine has officially become the world’s most powerful naturally aspirated engine. It is also Aston Martin's fastest production model ever, hitting a claimed 220 mph in some pre-production test runs.

Ten Aston Martin One-77s sold to one man?!

One man has supposedly purchased ten of Aston Martin's latest supercar, the One-77. The buyer is from the Middle East and reportedly handed over £15 million, approximately $23 million, to make sure his order was filled by September. That leaves 67 cars left for the rest of the automotive world to enjoy.

Aston Martin One-77 breaks brand's top speed record

Powered by a massive 7.3-liter V-12, the Aston Martin One-77 is on its way to becoming the brand’s fastest production car. Although testing was performed on a pre-production unit, the One-77 was capable of hitting 220.007 mph in a series of trial runs. This easily surpasses the brand’s current record held by the Vanquish S at a little more than 200 mph. Besides topping its own marque, Aston Martin hopes its One-77 will go on to become the world’s fastest British production automobile. We are guessing Aston Martin is looking to surpass the Jaguar XJ220's 217-mph record from 1992 and is bypassing the Bristol Fighter T and its claimed top speed of more than 225 mph.

Geneva Motor Show showcases a limited-edition Veyron and more

The Bugatti Veyron Bleu Centenaire is just one of the new models introduced at the Geneva Motor Show this week. Unlike what was rumored, the special-edition Veyron will neither come with a more powerful engine nor set a new record for top speed of a production car. However, it does lose approximately 220 lbs. compared to the standard Veyron and comes with a nice matte-blue paint job. Expect an astronomical asking price.

Maserati showcased a new automatic version of its GranTurismo coupe. The 6-speed automatic is coupled to a 440-hp 4.7-liter V-8.

The Audi TT is now edging into real-sports-car territory with its TT-RS. The newest Audi is powered by a turbocharged five-cylinder engine producing 340 horsepower; zero-to-60 mph should require only a swift 4.5 seconds.

The Gumpert Apollo Speed made its live debut in a unsightly aqua-blue paint job. You can read more about the Speed here.

On the other hand, the track-ready Pagani Zonda R was looking particularly menacing in its matte-black color. Read more about the upcoming track master here.

Aston Martin releases pictures of the One-77

The One-77 is a supercar currently being prepared by Aston Martin for a late 2009 launch. The car is rumored to be powered by a 7.3-liter V-12 making 700 hp and 553 lbs-ft of torque. The body will be constructed from aluminum and carbon fiber. Only 77 of the cars will be built. Word on the Internet is that Aston Martin has already accepted 100 deposits of £200,000 for the £1,000,000 car. See more pictures Aston Martin One-77 pictures here.

Is $1.9 million to much for an Aston Martin?

So what we have here is a partially-revealed One-77, the upcoming supercar offering from Aston Martin. So does Tata have it in them to build a car that costs as much as the new Veyron Grand Sport? Time will tell, but to last in this market it will have to offer exclusivity and speed and/or earn some major cool points. It has the first part covered with only a mere 77 units being produced.  Rumor is the car will have a 7.3-liter V-12 under the hood, which might be good enough to produce some impressive numbers and take care of that second part.
