First Aston Martin One-77 crash

Aston Martin one-77 crash

It looks like Aston Martin is going to have to rename their super car. The model was introduced as the "One-77" because a total of 77 units were being made available to purchase, but "One-76" may be a more appropriate name after this model was practically destroyed in a crash.

The incident occurred in Hong Kong and was the result of the driver hitting a kerb at high speed. Reports have stated there were no other cars involved in the crash and thankfully no-one was injured.

The majority of the damage seems to be superficial, however, with the One-77's carbon fiber monocoque body structure and handcrafted aluminum exterior, replacement parts might not be ready for shipping to the local body shop. If salvageable, this vehicle may have to make a special trip to Aston Martin to be rebuilt, and considering the costs involved beyond parts and labor, it could very well be wiser for the insurance company to write the €1 million One-77 off.

"The majority of the damage seems to be superficial" wtf are wcf writers smoking? if that's 'superficial' damage i'd hate to see what they think is real damage. no way in hell even an acura with damage like that wouldn't get written off. as for the driver..what a moron.

This is a way to beat the GFC, and still look good. 1. Buy the car as you have the money to do so and insure it. 2. Drive it around and let people know you have a one-77. 3. Once your sick of it and in need of funds, you wreck it to get the insurance money. The car costed about $7m to buy in Hong Kong so it would have better to have insurance to pay up and only lose out a couple of thousand and get your $7m back. That's business for ya

Proof that just because you're rich enough to buy a supercar, does not mean you're a good enough driver to drive one.
