If you're looking for a cheap Aston Martin, here's your opportunity to get one -- with one small issue: it's been driven a lot. This is a 2009 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster with an impressive 87,300 miles, suggesting it was a daily driver (or very close to it) for basically its entire life.

This is the highest-mileage recent Aston Martin on Autotrader, and it's also one of the cheapest: the asking price for this Vantage is just $34,981, which is Toyota Camry money for an Aston Martin. This particular V8 Vantage is finished in black with a black and tan interior, and it uses Aston Martin's "SportShift" automatic transmission. It's offered by XL Auto Group in the Chicago area.

So how did it accumulate 87,000 miles in just eight year? According to the Carfax report, the first owner bought it new in New Jersey in 2010 and drove it an almost unbelievable amount, reaching 54,000 miles by September 2013. The second owner also drive it a lot, though not quite as much, bringing the mileage from 54,200 in March 2014 to 87,000 four years later. Clearly, this car has been driven quite a bit.

With high-mileage cars like this, there are generally two schools of thought: many people don't like them, because they feel these cars are nearing the end of their useful life. But some people love them, especially if they've been well-maintained, thinking that all the potential issues and troubles are ironed out. If you're in the second camp, this may be a great bargain.
