This Coachbuilt Aston Martin Will Have You Looking For Things To Sell

Limited Edition

One of 99 cars is being auctioned.

Unlike other sports cars and supercars, Aston Martins have always made owners feel special. Heck, if Aston Martins are good enough for James Bond, then the cars have to be good enough for the average enthusiast. Italian design house and coachbuilder Zagato thought the British automaker needed something a little more special and came out with the gorgeous DB AR1. Only 99 models of the vehicle were built and this one, number 89, will cross the auction block next month thanks to RM Sotheby’s.

The Aston Martin DB AR1 was unveiled at the 2003 Los Angeles Auto Show and gave a few individuals the opportunity to own an extremely rare grand tourer. The particular model may be 13 years old, but it has just 700 miles on the clock. Built upon the DB7, the DB AR1 has a 6.0-liter V12 engine that makes 435 hp and can sprint to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds. The exterior of the car is finished in Tungsten Silver, while the interior is finished in Claret Red. The car also comes with the original umbrellas, car cover, seat covers, owner’s manual and tonneau cover. When new, the DB AR1 cost roughly $250,000, but this model is estimated to sell for between $250K and $300K. We think it’s worth every penny, especially since it has a proper manual transmission.
