Brand new Golf GTI? No thanks, we’ll take this delivery mileage Aston Martin DBS

It’s hard to believe that for the price of a new Golf GTI Clubsport you can drive a bonafide Bond car, but that’s exactly the case with this golden Aston Martin DBS coming up for auction at Bonham’s Members Meeting sale.

As new cars become increasingly expensive, the current crop of hot hatches have started to be put up against some rather unfavourable competition. Case in point: a new Golf GTI Clubsport starts at over 40,000 pounds, and that just so happens to be the lower estimate for this stunning golden 2010 Aston Martin DBS coming up for auction at Bonham’s Goodwood Members Meeting sale on April 16th

Things get even crazier when you look at this car’s odometer, which shows that this Aston has covered only 365 kilometres since leaving the factory 13 years ago, making this one of the lowest mileage examples on the planet. While that ultra-low mileage is certainly a selling point, it does somewhat explain the shockingly low price. Having sat for so long, it probably needs a bit of TLC to be enjoyed to the fullest, and while this one-owner example has recently benefited from drivetrain recommissioning by noted marque specialists Stratton Motor Company, further recommissioning is advised before road use. Even so, this example represents fantastic value for money, and with zero reserve, there’s no telling what it might sell for. So, would you rather have a four cylinder hot hatch, or the V12 steal of the century?
