Row row row your fail boat through global shipping routes…

The good folks over at Wired Science recently posted this GPS map of global shipping routes traffic over a year.

This isn’t really a point to posting this, other than the fact that I thought it was kinda cool. Take a look:

Interesting?

Really?

Well I thought so.

Want an Aston Martin? Okay, how about 10 then?

Aston Martin One-77

Some folks clearly have way too much cash.

Always a fan of Aston Martin, and rather partial to some day owning one (ja right. Right after I buy a Gulfstream and an island), I nearly choked on my broke-ass working-class Bovril sarmie when I heard that some clown bought not one, but TEN, limited edition Aston Martin One-77 supercars.

Now we’re not just chatting about any old run of the mill Aston Martin either (is there such a thing?), as mentioned, this is the One-77 supercar – the whole “One-77″ bit means that only 77 are being made.

As griped by TopSpeed:

OK, now this is totally unfair. The Aston Martin One-77 is limited to only 77 units, but when only one customer gets 10 of them, it makes it impossible to have a chance to buy one. Not that we had that chance. Of course the buyer is from Middle East (where else!) and apparently he bought the cars for “The Family.”

When the customer made his demand (10 cars delivered by September), you can imagine that the guys from Aston Martin said this might be impossible. But a cheque of $23,000,000 made it more than possible (as a refresher an One-77 costs $1,4 million).

Oh, and apparently there’s more. There is another guy who asked for two One-77: one to drive and one to hang on the wall as a piece of art.

Firstly, he wrote a cheque for $23mil. WHO writes a cheque for $23mil? Do you? Didn’t think so. (And if you do, can I have one?)

Secondly, did you catch that bit about the other tonsil who plans to HANG THE CAR ON THE WALL AS A PIECE OF ART?

What, a van Gogh not good enough for your bog wall? FHM ran out of Jessica Biel posters? IT’S A SUPERCAR!!!! Not some piece of crap print of a frikkin iceberg or some lame-ass calendar with pictures of puppies!

You know what buddy? F@ck you AND your crappy wall. I hope it falls down and squashes your hydrangeas.

And I’m not alone in being just a teensy-weensy bit jealous – BornRich also recently had a post on the sale. Check out how he tries to be all formal and “Yes well, bravo to him. We wish him and his 10 supercars well and and and…”, but you just KNOW that deep down inside he is so green with envy that it is slowly killing him:

In the normal world of ours, we can only dream of owning “a” supercar, however, to dream of owning 10 supercars, either you’ve got to be a lazy bum with a lot of lazybones or you are someone with a lot of oil wells in the backyard. Of course, the second one sounds better and according to a report, a Middle Eastern buyer has decided to purchase 10 limited edition Aston Martin One-77 supercar for his family. At the 1.7 million price tag, One-77 supercar is limited to just 77 units of these exotic beasts, but owning 10 would mean $23 million. The One-77 is made using a carbon fiber monocoque to keep the weight at an absolute minimum – just 3,300 lbs — and the road-burning power comes from a 7.3-liter V12 making 750-hp with a top speed at 220 mph. So, if you haven’t seen money doing the talks before, I think you just did.

Now there are only 67, thanks to this guy. That’s just greedy, and generally terrible form. What will I buy now if none are available anymore?

Coz that’s what’s stopping me from owning one.

I swear.

Because Frik von F@ckknuckle decided to hang one on his goddamn wall.

Doos.

Wanna know what all the fuss is about? Here are some pics of one kick-ass wall-hanging:

$8million worth of car – Maybach Exelero…

Ever wondered just how much car you can get for $8million?

You have? Well okay then. In that case, here’s one: The Maybach Exelero.

Maybach Exelero

Here’s a snippet from the site where I first read about this: ($8million worth of car, and apparently we’re supposed to give a hoot about the tyres…)

The engineers at Exelero have built a truly amazing supercar. The Maybach Exelero is a one-of-a kind, hand-built, 700 horsepower monster.

The Exelero was originally commissioned by the Fulga Tire Company who wanted to build a car of vast size and capability to prove they could make extra large low profile tyres that could carry 6000 lbs and go 200 mph.

The final cost: 8 million dollars. No other sports car in the world has tyres this large.

What kind of vast size are we talking about? This car is 19 feet long, has 23 inch wheels and a gas mileage of 2.5 mpg at full throttle.

However, the worldwide reaction to the car has been so strong that Mercedes execs admitted they are considering a Maybach two-seater, although officially “there are no immediate plans”.

Here are some of the specs (from Wikipedia):

  • Length : 5.89 m (19.3 ft)
  • Width : 2.148 m (7.02 ft)
  • Weight : 2660 kg (5864 lb)
  • Engine : Bi-Turbo V12 from Maybach 57 S 700 hp (SAE) (522 kW), 1020 N·m (737 ft·lbf)
  • Top speed : 351 km/h (218 mph)
  • 0-62 mph : 4.4 seconds
  • Tyres : 315/25 ZR 23 Fulda Exelero
  • Fuel used for top speed test: 110 octane
  • Cost: Approx. $8,000,000 (USD)

Take a look at this behemoth:

Not too shabby. I’ll take four of them, thank you very much.

Head over to the original post to see a few short clips of this monster-mobile cruising around.

Who wants to buy me one?

Although… apparently I’m a bit slow – rumour has it this car was built in 2005. Only took me 5 years to find out about it…
