If you’re looking for a cheap way to enter the exotic car world, this 2007 Aston Martin V8 Vantage is exactly that. What you have here is an example that’s traveled a whopping 82,000 miles — which makes the entry price impressively inexpensive.
Just how inexpensive is it? The vehicle is being offered by a private seller in the D.C. suburbs for a mere $30,000, which is really mid-level Toyota Camry money. For that price, you can get a Vantage with a V8, an exotic brand name and, perhaps most importantly, a desirable 6-speed manual transmission, which enhances the character of the car.
Of course, you probably won’t want this Vantage if you’re considering a Camry, since there are a lot of drawbacks around its practicality and reliability. But it could be a good alternative to a Porsche, or an even more common sporty car like a Ford Mustang or a Chevy Camaro. After all, wouldn’t you rather have an Aston Martin than one of those?
Admittedly, it’s not quite that simple, and getting an Aston Martin isn’t necessarily a great decision for your wallet — even if it is cheap to buy, it may not be cheap to own. Still, this Vantage could be a desirable choice if you want to stand out and you understand the risks of exotic European car ownership before you buy. Find an Aston Martin Vantage for sale
