Aston Martin built just 77 examples of its aptly-named One-77 supercar, and only a small handful have appeared for sale on the used market since production ended in 2012. This white one is virtually new, and coming up for sale during Bonhams' Festival of Speed auction. You should buy it.
Welcome to You Must Buy, our daily look at the cars you really should be buying instead of that boring commuter sedan.
Like all One-77s, chassis #28 is equipped with a Cosworth-engineered 7.3-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine producing 750 horsepower and 553 lb.-ft. of torque. At the time of the car's introduction, it was the most powerful naturally aspirated road car ever. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed automatic transaxle and a limited-slip differential. The car also has adjustable push-rod monotube dampers and carbon ceramic brakes. According to Bonahms' description, 0-100 mph comes in around 6.9 seconds, and top speed is 220 mph.
Where this car stands out from other One-77s is in its special "Q by Aston Martin" customizations. This car is said to be the sixth of just seven Q-series cars, finished in Morning Frost White over Kestrel Tan, with optional red brake calipers, charcoal-colored seat belts, and an upgraded Bang & Olufsen sound system. Personally, I'm not a fan of the painted calipers, but the rest of the car is specced wonderfully. We're sure Aston's Q division would be happy to take the car back to the factory and make any cosmetic changes for the new owner (for the right price, anyway).
This One-77 as a part of Bonhams' Goodwood Festival of Speed sale in the UK. Freshly serviced and shown with just 300 kilometers (186 miles) on the odometer, it's estimated to sell anywhere between $2.2 million and $2.4 million. That's a whole lot of money, we know. But you're getting a whole lot of car.
