ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

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.
