The key here is the words "the only" in the second one. Those words make the subject singular.

Consider the following examples

Michel is one of my friends who have a car.

This means that among my friends who have a car -- Frank, Daniel, and so on -- Michel is one of them. The pronoun who refers to friends.

Michel is the only one of my friends who has a car.

Among my friends, only Michel has a car.
