If you are anything like me, dear reader, then you sometimes dream of being James Bond. If also, like me, you don’t have James Bond money, you have to figure out how to be a budget Bond. One of the key parts of being like Bond is driving an Aston Martin, but that is also one of the toughest parts to do on a budget. I’m not sure the recent Aston Martin DB11 discounts will be enough to matter, but at least it’s a start.
Be a budget Bond with the Aston Martin DB11
That’s right, the Aston Martin DB11 has the largest percentage discount of any new car on the market currently, according to Autoblog. For the fourth time, Aston Martin has now slashed prices on one of its cars, making them the most discounted model each time. Although, this time, it’s different.
Usually, when Aston makes one of their cars the most discounted car on the market, it is something aging that they want to shed from the lot. However, that is not the case this time.
Back in May of 2020, the Aston Martin DB11 was also leading the price change charge. Well, it’s back on top again but even more, discounted. At least for the moment, DB11 buyers can save up to $24,330.
For reference, the savings could buy you a new base-model 2020 Hyundai Kona, 2020 Mini Cooper, or a 2020 Honda Civic. Although the savings are massive, the normal $200,000 DB11 will still run you about $177,000. Even a full Hyundai Kona off the price won’t really help us budget Bonds get one. Really all it does is allow the real James Bonds of the world to get a free Hyundai Kona, basically.
Even though I still can’t afford a DB11, I won’t hate
The Aston Martin DB11 is still so cool. Astons are kind of on their own playing field. They aren’t as good as Ferrari or as flashy as a Lamborghini, but they really don’t have to be; they are Astons, and that is enough.
As Car and Driver notes, the Aston Martin DB11 is special. It looks brilliant and comes with either a 503-hp V8 or a 630-hp V12. Although most people know Astons by their distinctive and classy looks, it’s the sound that keeps enthusiasts putting their wallet up grabs and their foot on the floor.
The Acura NSX also joins Crazy Eddie’s price-cut bonanza
The NSX sees up 14 percent in price cuts to its $157,000 sticker. In my humble opinion, this Japanese supercar is one of the best value-for-dollar supercars in the game. This is an AWD coupe making 500 hp from a V6/hybrid motor team resulting in wild speeds and great fuel economy for the segment. Try to get a Ferrari or Lamborghini for $138,000 with this kind of speed and ferocity. I’ll wait…
The Rolls Royce Phantom is cutting deals like an Artic ice cream shop
A Rolls Royce Phantom will typically run folks somewhere in the $450,000 range for the most pedestrian models (lol). However, the average Rolls Royce customer spends about $537,000 on their rolling board room. Right now, buyers are getting around 4 percent off that number for an OTD price of $516,000.
Although that isn’t a massive percentage, when you are talking about numbers this big, it’s still about $20,000. *shakes head* The super-rich folks got it good, y’all; like buy a DB11 and save $25,000 smackers good.
