Opportunities like this don’t happen very often.
The Aston Martin One-77 is regarded as one of the finest cars ever produced by the manufacturer. While the British carmaker is best known for its luxury sports cars like the desirable DB11, technically speaking, the One-77 is the only Aston Martin that can be described as a thoroughbred supercar. As the name implies, only 77 examples of this alluring Aston were made, and only two are known to be in the US. One of them is currently up for sale on duPont Registry, and it’s in near-pristine condition.
This 2012 model One-77 is chassis number 66 of 77 and is available in Aviemore Pearl with a blue and white stitched interior. It’s quite possibly the best example of the exotic you’re ever likely to find. The owner has taken great care to preserve it (the listing describes it as “museum kept” and in “immaculate condition”), and it’s only done 730 miles in its lifetime. At the time, the One-77 was the fastest car Aston Martin ever produced, thanks to its 7.3-liter, naturally aspirated V12 churning out a whopping 750 horsepower and 550 lb-ft of torque. This enabled the exotic to reach 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 220 mph.
Of course, the One-77 has since been super-seeded by the track-ready, 800-hp Aston Martin Vulcan, which can hit 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds and go on to a top speed of 224 mph. Given its rarity and prestige, this One-77 will be a rare find for avid Aston Martin collectors. As such, it demands a steep asking price – according to the listing, it can be yours for a cool $3,500,000. Yes, that's even more expensive than the Vulcan.
