2000 Aston Martin Db7 Vantage Coupe 2-door 6.0l on 2040-cars
San Anselmo, California, United States
You are bidding on a 2000 Aston Martin db7 Vantage, with the bigger (and better) 6.0 liter V12 engine, paddle shift clutch less transmission, 477 horsepower.
The car has under 21,000 miles. Before me it belonged to the actor Jack Lemmon, who scarcely drove it because of his age. It was purchased from his estate by the Beverly Hills Porsche dealership and sold directly to me. They can provide proof of lineage using the VIN.
The car was a present from my wife. I cared for it with the appropriate love, as if it was an extension of her. It was serviced exclusively by a team of British car specialists who deal with Jags & Astons only. I'm happy to put the buyer in touch with them, to answer any additional question if needed.
My wife passed away several years ago and I've just driven the car less since; it's time to find it a new loving home..
The body is 200% clean, the interior in great condition, and the motor is as well tuned as if it'd just left the factory. When you push the engine 'start' button and hear that big V12 roar to life, you'll know why you bought it :)
It was purchased for $42,000, I'm asking for $35,000 taking into account market devaluation and the few miles I added to its odometer.
This is an honest sale, from an honest car lover and a big fan of Astons.

This has been a tumultuous year for Lotus - to say the least - from the company being sold off back in January to its CEO Dany Bahar being fired in June to its questionable financial status and rumors of the British automaker being sold off to another automaker. First, we heard that Volkswagen was interested in acquiring Lotus and parent company Proton, a rumor that was later dismissed. Now Automobile is reporting that fellow Brit Aston Martin could be in the market to work with or possibly even merge with Lotus.

While this is pure speculation at this point, such a venture could prove to be beneficial for both independent companies. That's because with Lotus focused on lightweight, relatively affordable sports cars and Aston Martin producing high-end performance cars, there is virtually no product overlap between the companies. The article suggests that a person or company wanting to merge these two automakers would have to raise between $1.1 billion and $1.6 billion in order to make a go of it, however.
We're not sure what to think of this latest rumor, but anything that can help get the struggling brand back to health at least has our interest.
It's hard to think back now, but the same man overseeing the design of the 2013 Ford Fusion also presided over a rather lackluster period in Ford design, highlighted by vehicles like the Five Hundred and Freestyle. With the redesigned Fusion receiving high praise, J Mays tells Automotive News that he feels vindicated from criticisms suggesting he's not a daring enough designer.

When Mays took over as lead of design in 1997, he admits to having quite an ego ("My head would barely fit through the door some days. I've long since gotten over myself") and the workload to match. With the Blue Oval's portfolio full of premium brands like Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo at that point, along with the bread-and-butter Ford, Lincoln and Mercury models, Mays certainly had quite the challenge.
It was in the mid-2000s that Mays took over just the premium brands, and took on the new title of Chief Creative Officer. At the time, Mays endured some criticism for looking backwards to retro styling, rather than setting a new standard for American car design - criticism that Mays says he is free from with the all-new Fusion.
Both of America's domestic luxury brands seem to be stuck in neutral.
It's ironic that Cadillac and Lincoln got new bosses within days of each other this month. It's also a commentary on the fact both of America's domestic luxury brands seem to be stuck in neutral.
