Aston Martin has been one of the most illustrious names of all British sports cars for decades. And not without reason: the finest materials, a beguiling design, and the preservation of the old brand values know how to inspire Aston Martin’s customers newly.
The brand with the winged logo has always manufactured luxurious sports cars and naturally has a weakness for athletics: In addition to the recently released first SUV – the Aston Martin DBX – the model portfolio also includes several Aston Martin sports cars and is currently being expanded continuously.
With the Vantage, Aston Martin started an attempt in 2005 to completely reopen the world of entry-level sports cars, which had previously been dominated by Porsche & Co. The traditional British brand launched the Aston Martin New Vantage on a new platform in 2017. And the result is more than sensational, both for the trade press and sports car fans. A futuristic, but immediately recognizable design skilfully combines the tradition of bygone days with modern technologies and marks the dawn of a new age.
The basic model of the Aston Martin sports car is available both as New Vantage Coupé and New Vantage Roadster. Both variants are powered by a four-liter V8 Biturbo engine that was developed by AMG. Both the Coupé and the Roadster have an agile rear-wheel drive and a modern dual-clutch transmission, as befits their standing. A model specially optimized for the racetrack is the Aston Martin Vantage AMR, which exudes motorsport flair with its 6-speed manual transmission and various performance optimizations.
In the early 2000s, Aston Martin launched a true legend with the DB9. After a construction period of more than 10 years, it was replaced by the Aston Martin DB11 on a new platform. Like its predecessor, the DB11 is one of the most beautiful sports cars ever. The Aston Martin DB10 model produced especially for the James Bond film “Specter.” In addition to its stunning looks, the DB11 also scores with inner values. The latest features with its new model platform also ensure that the DB11 drives on a par with the competition in driving dynamics.
The core model of the Aston Martin sports car is available both as DB11 Coupé and DB11 Roadster. On the engine side, the DB11 is available with the V8 Biturbo engine known from the New Vantage with a 5.2-liter V12 Biturbo engine developed by Aston Martin. The basic model of the current series is the Aston Martin DB11 Coupé V8, the top model is the Aston Martin DB11 Coupé V12. The special model Aston Martin DB11 Coupé V12 AMR, specially optimized for the racetrack, is even more powerful.
Even if the other Aston Martin sports cars really cannot be accused of poor performance, the Aston Martin DBS once again dwarfs them as the absolute top model. Originally based on the DB9, the DBS debuted as an independent model in 2007. After the DB11, Aston Martin launched a legitimate successor, the DBS Superleggera, in 2018. In addition to the beautiful design, the DBS Superleggera throws a lot into the balance and performance.
The highlight in the Aston Martin model portfolio is available as DBS Superleggera Coupé and DBS Superleggera Volante. Both models have one thing in common: the internally developed V12 Biturbo engine known from the DB11 has an output of over 700 hp! The 8-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive based on the transaxle principle also unite the two GTs. In the short time since its market launch, Aston Martin has already launched several models such as the DBS 59 – a homage to the one-two victory at Le Mans in 1959 -, the OHMSS Special Edition, and the 007 Edition – two editions based on James Bond – or the DBS Concorde Edition, which is reminiscent of the famous supersonic aircraft.
There are several ways you can enjoy the benefits of being behind the wheel of an Aston Martin sports car. In the end, of course, this is primarily a question of budget.
Aston Martin’s sports cars are of course all new. In addition to buying from the nearest Aston Martin dealership, special leasing websites have also been established here. Buying a new car is naturally the most expensive option, but it also offers several advantages: You get your Aston Martin in exactly the configuration you want. The car has the full manufacturer’s guarantee. And of course the condition is flawless.
The market for used Aston Martin sports cars is huge, and the range of corresponding sellers is just as huge: Whether directly from the Audi dealership, from an exclusive sports car dealer, from a used car dealer, corresponding online portal, or from a private source – the decision is entirely up to the buyer. Buying a used sports car naturally also has the advantage that you can also purchase older, manufactured model series such as the no longer manufactured Aston Martin Vanquish.
One variant that has become very popular in recent years is renting a sports car. It has several advantages: You don’t have to spend a fortune to drive your dream car. All costs are included in the rental price. You can change vehicles with complete flexibility if you feel like doing a new one. And you don’t have any annoying monthly costs that burden you even when financially a little tight.
