Aston Martin of Glenview

Things to Look for when buying Used Aston Martin

If you’re looking for a little piece of British supercar lore, you might be closer to that reality than you would expect. What do you think about driving home from an Aston Martin dealership for about the same price as a brand-new, well-equipped common family luxury sedan or SUV?

Purchasing a timeless gently used Aston Martin from our Aston Martin dealership inventory can provide you with total peace of mind, regardless of the car you choose. Every Aston Martin for sale up to ten years of age qualifies for our Timeless Pre-Owned classification, which means the history and mileage of the vehicle are thoroughly researched and fully verified, while also being covered by a 12-month unlimited mileage warranty that includes emergency roadside assistance.

What is the Most Sought-After Engine and Transmission in a Used Aston Martin for Sale

While it’s incredible to drive around in a classic car with a recognized name, some choices need to be made to acquire the right used Aston Martin DB11 or Vantage, and you can start with the V8 or V12 engine. To see the difference between the two engine models, the best thing to do is to visit the Aston Martin dealership and take a test drive.

In terms of power, the 5.2 liter DB11 V12 comes in at an exciting 600 horsepower, compared to the twin-turbocharged 4.0 liter DB11 V8, which still offers an exhilarating 503. The 0-60 MPH acceleration times are very similar, with the V12 engine coming in at just 3.9 seconds, only one-tenth of a second faster than the V8. And reaching top speeds, you can hit 200 MPH in the V12 and 187 MPH in the V8. Exactly what you would expect from a used Aston Martin for sale.

Similarly, you will find the same heart-pounding ride in the Aston Martin Vantage. But you won’t know what feels right for you until you drive one. The Vantage is enviably recognized as one of the best-built Aston Martin cars for sale on the market, featuring a highly reliable engine and outstanding body lines.
The 4.7 V8 Aston Martin Vantage is a very popular choice as it covers ground from 0-60 in only 4.7 seconds. The Sports Pack option, featuring Bilstein dampers and lighter alloys, is extremely desirable. Some of the older 4.3 Aston Martin Vantage vehicles have also gone through some upgrades that include a new induction system and software package providing boosted power up to 400BHP and greater torque. This is another Aston Martin for sale to watch for.

Next comes the timeless DB9. Any model is always popular with Aston Martin drivers and Sports Pack options once again take center stage for those must-have add-ons, much like manual transmissions. However, prices are leveling off to acquire incredible examples that can be found at our Aston Martin dealership, along with plenty of extras and complete service histories.
