This has to be one of the best looking cars I have seen, fantasy on wheels, no wonder some rich dude is not satisfied with only one and wants 10.

Its a great looking car there in my opinion.

10 may sound weird right now but if only 77 are to be made I am sure they will not depreciate and with time only appreciate.

I remember reading in the news long back that there was this guy who owned nothing but was a normal fellow and when he died his grand children who inherited the car garage suddenly found a pristine looking 1950's something Aston Martin ( Or maybe it was something else - Maybe Bugatti ) and it fetched them something like a few million pounds !!

A good investment I'd say and if it's a middle eastern guy then I dont think he needs to worry about the fuel bills either

if rumors are to be believed the buyer paid 23 million for the cars.6 million premium paid for the cars.

personally i used to like it but when i saw a video of it being driven in london there was nothing special compared to the other astons.the car is photogenic but nothing special to be in the range of 1.7 mil.

@ Rehaan - Nice. Drove the point home. And it sorta justifies the cost. But 1.7 mill ? It just doesn't look it. Nor does the Veyron either, but... Anyway, Rapide for me
