Readers of Oversteer, I present to you... the cheapest Aston Martin on Autotrader. It's at a Chevy dealer in Miami, parked next to a row of pickups and a used Dodge Charger. And it's only $23,900.

Yes, while it may seem like it's too good to be true, it certainly isn't: This is a 2001 Aston Martin DB7 Vantage Volante, which means it boasts a soft convertible top and uses Aston Martin's 420-horsepower 5.9-liter V12. And yes, it's only $23,900. For a V12-powered Aston Martin drop-top.

What's the catch?

There's no catch -- but there are reasons for the low price. None relate to this specific car, which seems like a good example: It's in nice shape, with a well-kept interior and exterior and a clean Carfax report that's free of any accidents. Instead, this DB7 is so cheap largely for the same reason all DB7s are so cheap: It's the unloved Aston Martin, cast aside by fans of the brand that prefer the vintage vehicles (the DB3s, DB4s and DB5s) or the more modern cars with better performance. In fact, while this DB7 is the cheapest Aston Martin on Autotrader, it's not the only DB7 currently listed for less than $30,000.

There's also a chance the color combination on this particular DB7 may have some effect on its price. While the dark blue exterior is a classic Aston color, the interior -- Is that yellow? -- feels a bit gaudy.

Still, if you look past some of the DB7's flaws, and this car's unusual color combination, one fact remains: This is a V12 Aston Martin for less than the price of a new Toyota Camry.
