Today we are proud to announce the first supercar for sale from the duPont REGISTRY Supercar Sellers Service: the Aston Martin One-77.
Regarded as “The Ultimate Aston Martin,” the One-77 is and will forever be one of the finest English automobiles ever created. While Aston Martin has long been known for their luxury sports cars, the One-77 brought the manufacturer into the supercar realm for the first time. And now, one of the 77 examples of this supercar is for sale within the United States.
Every car collector has one piece within their collection that stands out, and this automobile could be the star of even the finest collection. The U.S. has two One-77s that we know of residing within the country, which would make a collection that includes this car more substantial than ever before. If you’ve ever wanted to be a part of a very exclusive club and be the talk of the automotive community, this is your chance.
History of the One-77
The Aston Martin One-77 was first introduced to the world at the 2008 Paris Motor Show, where only a portion of the car was unveiled. It wasn’t until March 2009 at the Geneva Motor Show that a metallic blue concept of the One-77 was revealed in all of its glory. Shortly thereafter, the finished car made its way to the Concorso d’Eleganza Ville d’Este in April 2009. It was on the shores of Lake Como that the One-77 won the design award for Concept Cars and Prototypes. From this point forward, the Aston Martin One-77 became regarded as automotive art.
The One-77 is much more than rolling art, as it was also introduced as the fastest Aston Martin of its time. Under the hood rests an incredibly potent and naturally-aspirated 7.3-liter V12 engine (AM77/089) that is able to produce 750 hp and 552 lb-ft of torque. Mated to power plant is a fortified version of the DB9’s six-speed automated manual transmission. When power is routed to the rear wheels, the car is able to sprint from 0-60 mph in approximately 3.5 seconds. This English hypercar can then continue accelerating until it hits a top speed of around 220 mph.
Sixty-Six of Seventy-Seven
Featured on the cover of this magazine is number 66 of the total 77 crafted. The exterior is an absolutely stunning Aviemore Pearl finish, which is rumored to have received its name from a town called Aviemore that’s situated in the Highlands of Scotland. This blue finish rests upon a carbon fiber monocoque that is surrounded by an aluminum body shell. Every curve and surface found on this car is as reflective as they were when the car rolled off of the production line.
The cabin of this One-77 continues the elegance introduced by its exterior thanks to a fine, dark leather that is highlighted by contrasting white stitching and carbon fiber trim. The color scheme of this interior blends perfectly with the hues found on the exterior, a feat that only an artist could achieve. The physical design of this cabin brings all of the focus onto the driver, allowing them to have every necessary control available at their fingertips. To say that this is one of the most exquisite and driver-focused automotive cabins would be an understatement. What’s more, every surface found within this English supercar remains virtually untouched, showing no wear. It’s as if the car were placed in a time capsule at the time it was built, just a few years ago.
The owner ordered the car directly from Aston Martin in 2012 and has recorded less than 730 miles on its odometer since then, all by the original owner. Due to import regulations, the owner worked diligently to have the car delivered to the United States, where it has remained. Since delivery, the car has been meticulously cared for and has been museum kept. Every detail of the car is in immaculate condition and it is Concours ready. This is a rare opportunity to own a One-77 that is in such impeccable condition.
Whoever purchases this One-77 will take ownership of a rare piece of Aston Martin’s long and rich history. Its powerful V12 engine, luxurious interior and captivating exterior are all just pieces of a puzzle that when combined make this car an icon, legend and future collectible.
