A Fat Wallet Does Not Imply Driving Skill

Many of you loyal readers may have seen this fan-boy video clip of a million-plus-dollar Aston Martin being stalled repeatedly on a Paris street. 

The Aston Martin One 77 is a limited run (77 copies only) super coupe powered by a 7.3 litre, 750 BHP V-12 engine. As with most modern high performance cars, the transmission is a paddle shift automatic affair. Clothed in an aluminum body, the carbon fiber chassis rides on a suspension derived from Aston's DB9. Plunk down US$1.7 million and you can attempt to take it to its 220 MPH top speed.

Our friend in the video seems to be having a bit of a time getting the whole shebang underway. I'm sure the super blackout window tint is hiding a mighty red face.
