Despite the presence of so many other luxury car manufacturers in Europe, models from Aston Martin have always held their own aesthetic appeal.
Over the years, the English manufacturer has produced some of the best grand tourers and even luxury passenger cars to have ever come out of Europe. Let’s take a quick look at some of them next.
2016 Aston Martin DB9 GT
This was the last DB9, as the DB11 took its place from the next release onwards. However, the late 2015 release remains one of Aston Martin’s most liked vehicles from recent past. The
elongated design with 20-inch wheels and a 540-hp V12 engine inside, oozes style and power in a way that cannot quite be pinned down to any specific timeline.
Its mysteriously aesthetic appeal is what makes the 2016 Aston Martin DB9 such a timeless masterpiece of British automotive engineering design.
Also note that if the DB9 series appeals to you, the 2016 DB9 GT is the most powerful version you can get.
2011 Aston Martin Vantage Carbon Edition
The Carbon Editions from Aston Martin have always been special, especially for those that appreciate the classic appeal of owning a sleek, black luxury vehicle.
Aside from the shade, what is it that makes the Aston Martin 2011 Vantage so special? Well, the small car is deceptively and delightfully more powerful than what you might be led to believe by looking at its exteriors.
This little monster packs a 510-hp, 5.9l V12 engine inside. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that Aston Martin did not make up for the added weight (220lb+) of the monster engine either.
Larger vents were added for better ventilation and the front springs were completely replaced with significantly higher tier variants.
Coupled with lightweight carbon-ceramic brakes and aluminum wheels though, they managed to create that perfect balance by bring the weight difference down to just 154lb+.
Carbon Editions of the 2011 Aston Martin Vantage are exceptionally difficult to find in mint condition, but you should be able to find one at this exotic car dealership Florida (Tampa).
2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Convertible
The most powerful sports car from the manufacturer on this list, the 2014 Vanquish Convertible is also the most expensive classic Aston Martin mentioned here.
Now, that should not come off as a surprise to anyone familiar with the Aston Martin Vanquish series of course, given that it happens to be the English manufacturer’s flagship series.
Admittedly, the convertible is not the only stylish option you have here, but you might be hard-pressed to find anything from the 2014 Vanquish series that looks better.
The convertible design also adds a bit of practicality for real life usage when the weather conditions are not at their best.
Powered by the 2014 flagship 6l V12 engine with 565-hp and superb aerodynamics, it can reach and maintain speeds close to and above the 180-miles per hours mark!
The 2013 Aston Martin V12 Zagato also deserves a special mention here, although its close to half-a-million price tag at the time of its launch was not fully justified.
Nevertheless, the limited-edition partnership with Zagato has since bared fruit, as the classic car holds high resale value in some markets nowadays.
