Want to get your hands on a new Aston Martin DB11? We can hardly blame you, but there’s the small matter of the bill: It’ll cost you about a quarter of a million dollars or so, give or take some options. If that’s a little outside your budget, though, you could bid on this one and pray for good luck.
As you can see, this high-end British grand tourer is a little worse for the wear, to say the least. The front end has been bashed up pretty good, and the driver’s air bag has deployed – sure signs that it’s been in a frontal collision, though of what nature, we couldn’t say.
It is said to be in running condition, though. And while there’s only so much we can tell from these photos and the auction listing, it doesn’t look like there’s much damage to the frame itself – which would ostensibly mean that it could be fixed. (We wouldn’t suggest taking that assessment at face value, though.)
“Buff right out” the damage may not, but considering the value of the vehicle underneath, there could be what to salvage here. There’s a 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 behind that bloodied nose, after all – not the lower-spec V8.
Intrigued? The damaged goods are up for auction on Copart, with an opening bid (yet to be placed as we go to press) at $56,500. But the auction closes this Thursday, so you’d better act fast. Not too fast, though – you can see what happens when speed outpaces caution.
