Ariel thanks for the leads...I found my previous Aston on your website.
I am looking specifically for a 2009 DBS in Casino Royale color with 2+2 seating.

Oh boy, now that you mentioned it, I did look into the new Elise, which is available in paddle-shift clutch-less setup now, another plus for a daily, VERY FUN daily... but yea, practicallity is out the window

Totally with you on that, when I drove the Model S Performance, yes, smooth powerband (no transmission w/ just one single speed), puts you to the back of the seat till you let go that foot pedal... and yes, felt completely stealth while doing so.

Yup! That silver one... the only thing pulling me back was the exterior color, condition wise it doesn't look too bad with that much miles though... not sure if the price is still negotiable, but I have yet to see any DBS having that much miles... where else do you look to see if any new one would show up in the open market?

yup very good listings there, I found myself stuck there for a good hour or so just browsing...

I'm looking for a MY09/MY10 DBS in either white, or any grey & dark grey hue (not specifically casino royale), black inteior (not tan or any funky mix), not necessary to have the rear +2 seatings (actually curious to find it with just the front 2 seats on the state-side), BUT, must have ZF auto trans.

Anyhow, after working with the UK trying to diagnose the noises and working with the dealership in Southern California to try and resolve payment, the decision was made to refund the owner the purchase price and ship the car back to Southern California. So, if any of you come across a quantum silver (i think) DBS with a dark tan interior and with less than 10K miles or so and being sold out of a shop in Southern California, beware!

The car really does look immaculate from the outside and the interior is gorgeous as well, although some of the leather trim is starting to peel.
Thx for the tip!

Most early 09's are in the 2+0 seating which makes it tough for me.
You don't want manual?

Why do 2009 DBS depreciate so much? For a 4 year old car, its depreciated $100k. A 2009 V8 Vantage, on the other side, has not even depreciated as much.

Curious as to why that is.

I think you could probably get a 2009 with 10K on it for high $130's about now. There is a large difference between the ask and the transaction values.

at $150k for a 2009, the DBS depreciates a ton more compared to a 2009 vantage which still sells around $95k

I don't know what you are getting on about.

First, your numbers are not comparable. A DBS on the low end vs a V8 on the high end. At least use comparable numbers for the same condition/mileage.

Second, a DBS is 50% more than a V8 to begin with, so, all things being equal, you'd expect a 2009 same mileage/condition DBS to sell for 50% more than a V8. Seems like your numbers bear that out.

No surprise here.

What I was getting on about is the depreciation.
A new DBS is $275k. A 4 year old DBS is selling for around $150k on the low end. Let's use $180k as average.
That is about 65% of the total cost when new.
A new V8V is $130k. A 4 year old V8V is selling for around $95k as average.
That is about 74% of the total cost when new.

Of course mileage may play a factor. This is just generally what I am seeing on depreciation values. Perhaps it is because a new gen DBS is coming out soon.

Firstly the DBS at a much higher price point has more potential to depreciate.
Look at Scuderias which also started at a similar price point close to $300k and also could be had for $160k.
Look at Maserati's and Bentleys that have dropped like rocks. I think we all know that most exotics have more potential to depreciate when starting off at higher price points initially.

I do think the new Vanquish coming out also hits the DBS harder as well.

I think the technical business school economic terminology for this is "The more baller they are the harder they fall"
