At Least 300 Poor Sad Rich People Won’t Get An Aston Martin AM-RB 001

There will be a maximum of 150 examples of the Aston Martin AM-RB 001, the hollowed-out hypercar with the name of an industrial process robot. Which is really, just incredibly tragic for at least 300 rich people, who will not be able to buy one until they come up used.

Aston Martin PR guy Simon Sproule was talking to Australia’s Motoring when he had to break the terrible news:

“Interest is running at three times production at the moment,” he said.

“A couple of years ago we had the holy trinity of cars that all came out at the same time from Porsche, Ferrari and McLaren, and there were many collectors that had to have all three in their set.

“We now have the [AM-RB] 001 and I think a lot of those same collectors are saying they need one of our cars in their collection.”


Aston Martin’s going to make a minimum of 99 examples, which now sounds highly unlikely, but even with an extra 51 you’re going to hear the faint rustling noise of a lot of people wiping away their tears with thousand-dollar bills.


They’ll all just have to console themselves by buying Bugatti Chirons, like peasants.
