Aston Martin Munich has a 1140-mile-old One-77 in stock; value has nearly doubled in five years

A low-mileage Aston Martin One-77 is on sale in Munich for £2.5 million – close to double the model’s original list price.

The five-year-old car has just 1140 miles on the clock and is one of only three One-77s currently known to be on sale. It is car number 67 of 77, and one of just eight left-hand-drive examples.

This rarity has helped to accelerate the value of the white metallic example, according to Paul Spires, head of Aston Martin Works.

“Left-hand-drive cars are rarer so command a bigger premium,” said Spires. “But the One-77 is so rare and collectable that I can’t see it [the growth in values] stopping any time soon.”

Aston Martin Works recently sold two other One-77s at “similar prices”, confirming that the low-mileage Munich car’s asking price is not unusual. Spires believes the One-77 is becoming increasingly desirable and cites the fact that owners rarely want to sell their cars as a factor in the rocketing asking prices.

“You’ve got to remember that the owners of these cars don’t need the money,” he said. “So to entice them to sell, you have to offer a really good premium. If they sell their One-77, what will they replace it with that will appreciate as quickly?”

Spires is so confident in the appreciation of One-77 values that he believes the model could follow the trend set by the Aston Martin DB4 Zagato, which is worth around £10 million. “The sky is the limit,” he concluded.

However, others are not so optimistic. Paul Michaels, chairman of Hexagon Classics, thinks the One-77 is still some way off the most valuable supercars.

"Low-volume cars like the One-77 end up with high price tags in the used market because demand almost certainly outstrips supply,” said Michaels. “I've recently heard of One-77 prices between £1.3m and £2m and my feeling is that somewhere towards the lower end of this is more accurate. Certainly rare and certainly desirable, but not quite into limited-run Ferrari territory just yet."

I understand being Aston's press agents for brand new cars, but this is a bit too much. When we will have a proper "traded price", better if in a public auction, well, that's market value. Asking price doesn't mean anything. Paul Michael's gut feelings sound about right. If Autocar is trying to support secondary market of limited edition Astons, should try harder.

The value has increased by 700% in just one week!

only a moron would pay that much for that car: asking is one thing- getting is another

The self praising is cringeworthy!

Let me translate:
(1) These owners want cars that will appreciate quickly, so we are not talking about car enthusiasts but investors.
(2) These owners don't need the money but they want their cars to appreciate quickly. Definition of greed? (Just an observation, not a critique of capitalism)

Did anyone ever do a test drive of the One-77?

Evo magazine tested it. Harry Metcalfe if I remember correctly. He absolutely loved it and couldn't understand why they didn't give the mags a car to test. It was a private Saudi sourced one in light green. Absolutely stunning in every way. I would have one over a LaFerrari.
