Back in 2017, Italdesign revealed its first-ever internally produced car, the ZeroUno, at Geneva. Just five were built, presumably all sold to collectors who've tucked them away in climate-controlled garages. The very last ZeroUno coupe to roll off the line has been pulled out of its life in storage, and now, it's . 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.

The ZeroUno is powered by a 610-horsepower naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V-10—the same basic engine found in the current Audi R8 and Lamborghini Huracan. Power gets to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Italdesign claims a 0-62 mph time of 3.2 seconds, and a top speed of 205 mph. This particular car was ordered new by Instagram user , who specced it with a special matte black "stealth" paint with Italian flag-colored stripes along the body.

According to , the car has never been registered for road use, and it only has delivery miles on the clock, meaning it's basically still new. RM Sotheby's estimates it'll sell from anywhere between €950,000 and €1,500,000 (around $1.07 million and $1.7 million) at is Essen auction in Germany next month. That's a whole lot of money for a car most people don't know about. But, it does get you a unique piece of rolling art with a world class powertrain underneath. And you'll certainly be the star of the show at your local Cars & Coffee.
