One wealthy Australian has placed an order for what is the most expensive car in the world, the Aston Martin One-77.

Aston Martin unveiled the hand-built car last weekend in Italy. The $4m supercar is more expensive than the Bugatti Veyron or Ferrari Enzo.

It will be one of only 77 examples built by the British company, which describes it as “perfection”.

Mr. Fabris, Aston Martin’s sales manager for Australia, said the Australian customer, who wasn’t one of the usual car-collector suspects, would be getting “a piece of art” compared with Veyron.

He denied the One-77 was chasing the Bugatti Veyron, which blitzed all records when it arrived four years ago.

The company suggests a top speed of more than 320km/h and 0-to-100km/h time of about 3.5 seconds.

When a One-77 is delivered, an engineer will accompany the car to tailor its suspension for the customer.

Aston Martin director of design Marek Reichman said, “There isn’t a higher level we can go to. If we could bottle the essence of Aston Martin – power, beauty, soul – as a three-dimensional expression, that really is what One-77 is all about.”
