We make selling your Aston Martin easy.
A pre-owned Aston Martin is a truly special motorcar. That means it pays to do your due diligence before selling one.
Choosing a luxury dealership like We Buy Exotics means that you get a rapid best-value price that’s worth your valuable time. We can do that because we know these vehicles inside and out.
Get to Know Aston Martin
Lionel Martin and Robert Bamford did more than establish a motorcar company in London one fateful day in 1913; they founded a company that would create the archetypal British car, the Aston Martin.
Most divide this company’s history into pre-war and post-war periods.
World War I broke out shortly after the company’s founding, which naturally halted production. After the war, production resumed, and the company focused on racing cars. New ownership of the company in 1936 shifted that focus to road cars, right before the Second World War began.
1948 was the true start of the company’s post-war period, which emphasized grand touring and sports cars. In the nearly 70 years since, this company has produced new models or updated current models nearly every year. The result? Their lineup is constantly evolving, becoming better and better.
Every single one of these luxury vehicles is exceptional. Yet some models stand apart even from this exceptional lineup.
The brand’s DB lineup began in 1948 with the DB1. It wasn’t until 1964, however, that this model achieved widespread fame.
In 1964’s Goldfinger, super spy James Bond drove the Aston Martin DB5. This cinematic appearance made this model a household name around the world.
The DB Revolution
Nearly 30 years later, the Aston Martin DB7, the DB7 Vantage, and the DB7 Zagato made their debuts. In production for a decade, the DB7 and DB7 Vantage were replaced in 2003 by the new and improved DB9. 2004 saw the release of the Aston Martin DB9 Volante, with Volante being the convertible version of the coupe car. The excellence didn’t stop there, though. In 2016, the Aston Martin DB11 V12 graced the road.
The V8 Mainstay
The V8 has been a mainstay for the brand, and it’s easy to see why. These models possess innovative body styles with superior handling that makes them the vehicle to own.
The original V8 was in production from 1969 to 1989, but it was the Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT roadster, released in 1977, that earned the title of “Britain’s first supercar.”
The Vantage name has been used on other Aston Martins, including the 1993-2000 and 2018-present Aston Martin Vantage. When added to another model name, Vantage refers to a higher-powered version of a car (such as the Aston Martin V12 Vantage).
The Aston Martin Rapide and Rapide S made their debut in 2010. Still in production today, this 4-door luxury sports saloon vehicle might have a rather on-the-nose-name, but it’s more than earned it thanks to its extraordinary capabilities.
Vanquishing the Competition
The Aston Martin Vanquish body style is another popular choice, including the 2001-2007 V12 Vanquish and Vanquish S and the 2012 Aston Martin Vanquish and Vanquish Volante. Don’t get these Vs confused with the Aston Martin Virage, though; these Vs were manufactured as the automotive group’s hand-built flagship models from 1989 to 2000.
This vehicle remains a symbol of classic British culture. As you prepare to sell your Aston Martin, you should be proud to have been a part of its long history.
