Only 77 were built. They don't come up for sale often.
Not only is this 2011 Aston Martin One-77 rare just because it’s a One-77, but also due to the fact it’s the sixth of only seven Q-Series Special Editions. Chassis #28 is set to cross the auction stage next week at Bonhams’ Festival of Speed auction, presenting a rare opportunity for someone who missed out on the chance to snag one a few years ago. Only 77 examples were built and we don't see them at auction very often. The Q-Series, or rather “Q by Aston Martin” means it’s been further customized to the original buyer’s tastes.
This left-hand drive example is finished in Morning Frost White over Kestrel Tan, which we think is a stunning combo. It also features the optional red brake calipers, charcoal-colored seat belts and a Bang & Olufsen sound system. Chances are, the company’s Q division will be more than happy to carry out additional custom work if it's new owner so desires. Anything can be done for a price. As with all One-77s, power comes from a Cosworth-engineered naturally aspirated 7.3-liter V12 with 750 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. All of that power is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission with manual shifting. At the time of its launch the One-77 had the most powerful NA V12 in a road car ever.
Performance, needless to say, is quite something with a top speed of 220 mph and a 0-60 mph time of about 3.5 seconds. Total weight is about 3,600 pounds. Additional mechanical features include an all-independent suspension that’s also electrically adjustable for both ride height and rate change. Carbon ceramic brakes are at all four wheels. To help keep all of that power under control, there’s dynamic stability control, electronic brakeforce distribution, and traction control. Bonhams estimates this One-77 will sell somewhere between 1,650,000 and 1,800,000 GBP, but we wouldn’t be at all surprised if it goes for even higher. Photos courtesy of Bonhams.
