by Mike –
Here is my pick for the classic car for sale today that I would like to own. I like this generation of Aston Martin – right between the DB6 and the more modern DB7 model. This Aston Martin reminds me of an American muscle car, like a Mustang, but with more style and elegance especially the interior.
1987 Aston Martin V8 Volante
* Windsor Red with Magnolia leather interior and matching hood
* Left-hand drive, automatic transmission
* Air conditioning and BBS alloy wheels
* Delivered new to Monaco and remained there for the first 16 years of its life
* The current odometer reading is 63,051 kilometres (approximately 39,150 miles)
The Estimate is: £50,000 – 60,000; (€59,000 – 71,000); (US$ 77,000 – 92,000)
This Aston Martin is for sale at the Bonhams Aston Martin Works Sale in Newport Pagnell, UK on May 18, 2013.
There is nothing special about the history of this car except that it appears to have been well cared for. The color combination and the low miles are an attraction as is the fact that it is a convertible. The British have had problems with the unattractive looks of some convertible models when the top is down.
Fortunately this Aston Martin does not suffer from that poor convertible top design. The mileage is just about right to keep the car in good shape and the price estimate is in the correct range if the car holds up to inspection.
I like this Aston, the style is simple, understated elegance – just what you expect from Aston Martin.
