Now the car is being sold for 7,37,100.00 United States Dollar
One of 1,204 existing 1960 Aston Martin DB4s is up for sale in Australia. According to an announcement posted on Octane’s website, the seller is asking AU $ 1 million (RUB 52 million at current exchange rates) for a rare 146,020-kilometer sports car. That’s a pretty high price tag for a partially disassembled car.
udging by the photos in the ad, the Aston Martin DB4 has lost its headlights and radiator grille, the condition of the body is poor, many parts are covered with rust, and a long-term layer of dust has accumulated in the cabin. The equipment list contains working power windows and a functioning Motorolla radio, as well as the original user manual.
In 1962, the car was imported to Australia, and later it changed owners. Since 1979, the Aston Martin DB4 practically did not go out on the road, and then it was completely locked in the garage for 30 years. Under what circumstances the car lost its optics and radiator grille, the author of the ad does not specify.
The ad has been hanging on the site for almost a month, but the new owner has not been found. Most likely, potential buyers are scared off by the price of a dilapidated car.
This is not the first time that advertisements for the sale of, albeit rare, but still rubbish appear on the Web. For example, in February of this year, a battered Porsche 911 Turbo Slant Nose of 1988 was put up for sale, which was estimated as a new Cayenne – the seller asked for 5.7 million rubles. And in the fall of last year in the United States, they tried to implement the 2014 Ferrari 458 Spider, which burned to the ground.
