The Cheapest Aston Martin on Autotrader Is Just $18,500

Although I’m often pointing out "the cheapest" of various different models, this one is extra special. This is the cheapest Aston Martin currently listed for sale, and it’s not just relatively cheap compared to its original pricing — it’s legitimately, quite, very, impressively cheap. It’s $18,500.

Yes, it’s a real Aston Martin for $18,500. It’s offered by a private seller in Fullerton, California, near Los Angeles, and it isn’t just a cheap used Aston Martin, but a good one: It’s a V12-powered DB7 model, which is the best powertrain for that car. It’s a convertible, which is nice. And it’s got a manual transmission, which is always preferable to any early exotic car automatic-transmission attempts.

So why’s it so cheap? That’s simple: the mileage. This DB7 has covered a truly impressive 87,500 miles since new, which makes it the highest-mileage Aston Martin on Autotrader. Getting that many miles in a car like this is a real feat, as they can be expensive, temperamental and challenging to drive every day — but that’s exactly how it appears this car was used: as a frequent driver with little regard to the impact of mileage on value.

And, to be honest, there’s something cool about that — assuming the car has been well-maintained. The owner makes it seem like that’s exactly the case, as the Autotrader ad starts out with a list of new items in the car — including new fuel pumps, a rebuilt power-steering rack, new air-conditioning lines and much more. This Aston may be high-mileage but it doesn’t seem like a basket case. And either way, it won’t break the bank — at least, when you buy it. After that, it’s hard to say. Find an Aston Martin DB7 for sale

  1. this may be the most reliable DB7 out there.  especially since its actually being driven,  not just sitting.  

  2. my dad had a DB7 identical to this in coupe form (except it had carbon fiber trim instead of the wood)…it was a hoot to drive but the quality was hilariously terrible. He bought it in 2009 for 42k with 2,500 miles on it…spent far more time at the dealer than in our garage but seemed to run better the more we drove it. I’d estimate he spent about 20-25k on service and repairs in the 6 years he owned it (including two, possibly three fuel pumps which are a major issue on these cars)…traded it in with 13k miles for a manual 06′ DB9 volante (also with around 2,500 original miles)…the DB9 has been completely bulletproof thus far and is a much better car…that said idk if i’d go for this one…I think dads car ended up selling for something like 25k and that car was freshly serviced by the dealer and in brand new condition…so tempting though, i’ll always love these cars.
