Rare Aston Martin DB AR1 Is A Delicious Drop-Top Throwback

Under the hood, the DB AR1 is fitted with a glorious 435-horsepower 5.9-liter V12 engine which is paired with a six-speed manual gearbox. A limited-slip differential is also fitted. The particular example shown here is painted in Tungsten Silver and has a leather interior in Charcoal. The cabin lacks the gadgetry you’d find in a modern vehicle, but we love the classic white gauges and diamond-quilted leather seats. Everything looks immaculate, which isn’t surprising since this example – car number 55 – has just over 6,000 miles on the clock.According to the Bring A Trailer listing, this particular DB AR1 was initially registered in California, but also spent part of its life in Florida and Illinois. The current Massachusetts dealer is selling it with original Aston umbrellas, a leather jacket, and factory books/manuals. In the video below, posted by Aston Martin New England, you can hear the V12’s melodious sound, unmuffled by turbocharging. It’s goosebump-inducing stuff and made even more special when combined with the ability to switch through the gears yourself.
