Internet sites seem to be like sheep. Once someone's got a story, everyone takes it as gospel, and it gets reported as fact.
One such example is Aston Martin's Project One-77. Around the world, sites reported the car as being sold out. Hell, even we fell for it.
But an insider at Aston Martin has exclusively told CarAdvice that customers who are willing to put down the 200,000 pound deposit right now, will in fact secure themselves an example. While he wouldn't go on record, he categorically denied reports that the car is sold out.
The problem stemmed from a misinterpretation. Aston Martin had over 100 expressions of interest, not firm orders. As yet, there are still production slots available, which means that even Australians who want one of the world's most exclusive cars, can still place an order.
Right-hand drive, and ADR approved, our man at Aston Martin assures us that the One-77 will be able to be driven on our roads - one of the few seven figure supercars to be able to do so.
