Aston Martin, purveyor of all cars obscenely awesome, has just released a new model, the Aston Martin One-77. It is so lavish that they only made 77 of them. Before you think about pulling out your credit card, you should know that the One 77 costs a cool $2 million. What else you could buy for the price of ONE Aston Martin?

1. 156 Honda Civics

civicWhile not as flashy or even remotely as awesome, it’s a car, and it will get you from point A to point B.  And when your friends come over, you can brag that you have 155 very practical, average vehicles. They will think you are awesome. Or just weird.

2. Three Islands in Panama

While they might be disease-infested or house extinct dinosaurs, you will still own 3 islands, although you probably will have no way to get to them.

3. 50 – 170 Mail Order Brides

Imagine, sitting around your house with your 170 average looking Eastern European women at your beck and call, all with debit cards linked to your account and simultaneous periods. How awesome does that sound? Way better than a phenomenal,  limited edition Aston, right?

4.  A 2, 060, 606 Item Shopping Spree at a 99 Cent Store

5. 18,545 Mona Lisas

6. This House

Dreamhomes.com values this house at just under $2million. Buy this, and you’ll have just enough money left to buy, oh I don’t know, a sofa from Ikea?

7. The Obligatory: 8,000,000 gumballs

gumballsI’ve never understood why people always use gumballs as a reference for large amounts of money. As though that would be the first thing I’d go out and buy with a wad of cash. This is just a stupid, stupid comparison.

Forget it. Just buy the Aston Martin already.
