24 As­ton Martin DB7

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

As val­ues of ear­lier cars re­main firmly planted in the six-fig­ure sphere, the most cost-ef­fec­tive – and, in many ways, more prac­ti­cal – way into As­ton Martin own­er­ship is a DB7. A huge num­ber were built, mean­ing there are lots out there, but while the cheap­est cars have plenty of sale-room temp­ta­tion, buyer ex­u­ber­ance might be blind to elec­tri­cal faults, en­gine mal­adies and struc­tural woes that won’t be cheap to put right. Lots of his­tory is es­sen­tial, ei­ther with main deal­ers or spe­cial­ists, thus a lack of pa­per­work tells you one thing: walk away. Own­ing any As­ton Martin should be sheer plea­sure, but buy­ing a bad ’un will scar any en­thu­si­ast for a long, long time.
