The Uncrazy Pill: 2008 Aston Martin Vantage Roadster

This next car is a smidge above the typical DT price point…but oh man it has depreciated a bunch and it looks amazing for being less than the average price of a new car in 2022 (which was $47,077…uggg). But this thing had a base price of $126,400 in 2008 and now it is offered for a fraction of that price. Who wouldn’t want a car with supercar pedigree, looks, and performance that is motivated by a 4.3 liter quad-cam V8 that pushes out 380 horsepower into 6-speed sportshifted auto, for about the price of the average newish 4-door Jeep. I just don’t understand how the average consumer makes his/her automotive decisions. To quote the late great Mugatu “I FEEL LIKE I’M TAKING CRAZY PILLS?” Find this 2008 Aston Martin Vantage Roadster offered for $41,995 in Houston, TX via ebay classifieds.
