Written by Nick S. (Superleggera)

Prices of super cars aren’t always based on performance. Sometimes, the brand of car is where the hefty price tag comes in.

At a base MSRP of $118,370, this car can be reached by a wider variety of people who want a fast and luxurious car to cruise around or even use to show off. This Aston produces 420 horsepower and 346lb-ft of torque from its 4.7L V8 providing a top speed of 180 mph.
