2011 Is Going to be Exciting for all the Auto Enthusiasts

Let us begin with the high note, along with the new Aston Martin One-77, the model that is going to be built only in 77 copies. That supercar is powered by a 7.3-litre  V 12 engine that produces 559kW/750Nm. Although it was released some time ago, it’s only now that the first model has left the factory and has been delivered to its first owner. Obviously, the person must have been rich to afford that model as the vehicle costs an enormous $1.83m. What is more if the person was one of the 17 customers willing to place the order for that particular model, the price was even higher as it was enlarged by the costs of delivery, local taxes and on-road costs. The final price could as well pass $3 million.
