26: 1989 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Zagato
You probably think of Aston Martin as your local doctor’s ride, but these cars have been around for a while. There was a point in time where Aston Martin and Maserati had become fairly obscure, and the birth child of that is the 1989 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Zagato. Take one look at the car and you don’t know if you are looking at a DeLorean or something else. There are lines all over the car and it further complicated what could have been a smooth design. The V8 engine was plagued with reliability problems from the gate.
If you could get the car to drive correctly, you were in for a decent experience. But these cars are seldom seen on the road anymore and the price can be outrageous. There are much better exotic cars that you can get in this price range that will last a lot longer. The Vantage Zagato has a lot of potentials if you can find one for an affordable price, but at the inflated prices nowadays it is worth avoiding altogether.
