Now we come to the car that started it all: the 1964 Aston Martin DB5. While not the most valuable car in the collection, it was the vehicle that sparked his hobby. This grand tourer features a five-speed manual gearbox, blue leather interior, period-correct wire wheels, and all the James Bond vibes you can handle. Estimated take is between $650,000 and $725,000.
Remember when we told you one of the Silver Surfers wasn’t silver? This 1964 Shelby Cobra 289 is the exception. Painted in a glossy black finish, this was the centerpiece of Peart’s collection, and one of his last acquisitions in 2015. The Cobra has been left to factory specifications and was restored in the mid-2000s. It’s likely that this particular car alone will net somewhere between $900,000 and $1,000,000.
Last (but certainly not least) is the 1970 Lamborghini Miura P400 S: the world’s first true supercar. Its 2,800-pound figure features unmistakably exotic body lines and a low-slung roofline—the epitome of Bertone-designed exotics. Its carbureted V12 produced a respectable 380 horsepower, giving the car the ability to sprint from zero to 60 mph in around 6.7 seconds. This is perhaps the most valuable car in Peart’s lineup and could bring in as much as $1.5 million.

When you’re shopping for a new ride, sometimes all you want are the essential details delivered quickly and easily. We’ve condensed our more comprehensive eight steps to buying a new car into a few essentials. Here we go:
1. Pick your vehicle
Read Edmunds reviews and best vehicle lists, such as those for best midsize sport-utility vehicles, best sport sedans and best pickups. Then narrow your choices, settling on the vehicle that fits you best, whether that’s a minivan or a subcompact. Shopping online is the fastest way to get a great deal, so these steps assume that’s what you are doing.
2. Arrange financing
Run your credit report and get your credit score. The score tells you your credit tier, which will affect your annual percentage rate. Even if you have bad credit, you can still buy a vehicle that’s right for you and your wallet. Next, get preapproved for a loan at your local bank, credit union or online lender. By going in with financing already arranged, you can determine if the dealer can beat your interest rate. This strategy also keeps the negotiations more focused since you will only be looking at the total price of the vehicle (also called the “out the door” price), not a monthly payment.
3. Check vehicle prices
For a quick sense of pricing on Edmunds, look at the deal “meter” next to most vehicles listed in the Edmunds new-car inventory. It will indicate whether the special offer shown is a fair, good or great deal. Click “Reveal Price,” supply some contact information and you’ll immediately see the deal details.
Some listings may ask you to request a quote from the dealership, and that’s easy to do. It’s smart to get multiple quotes once you are serious about a make and model. It can add a little time to the process, but it also can pay off.
If you want more context on the vehicle’s selling price, Edmunds can help with its True Market Value tool. You’ll get an idea of what people are paying for vehicles that are similarly equipped to the one you’re considering, and it’s a good reference point for negotiations. Edmunds also has a tool to help you appraise your potential trade-in to determine if you might trade it in or sell it on your own.
4. Gather dealer quotes and test-drive
If there is no special offer, you can email, text or telephone dealers for a price quote. Getting four to six quotes on vehicle prices in an hour should be easy. Call the internet manager to verify that the vehicle in question has the options you want and to check if it has any other dealer add-ons. Not all will match your ideal configuration, so you may have to be flexible on options and color to get the best deal.
When you’ve found the exact vehicle you want, take the lowest price quote, then call or email the internet manager and make an offer. Even if
My husband told me about Carvana from a commercial ad he heard/saw. I laughed about it and said ‘yah right, there’s gotta be a hitch somewhere’. A few weeks later, he brought up Carvana again….curious, I decided to check it out online. The key words there was ‘check it out’. I ended up buying a vehicle a couple hours later. Yeup, it was just like that. No hassle, no hidden costs or agendas. So after reviewing everything on the site, I started looking at minivans….I started falling in love with minivans….I started buying minivans….all through carvana. Once I locked in the one I wanted, I went through the credit process, documentation process, and pick up date (I chose pick up – because at this point, I still felt a little ‘leary’ about the whole deal’. It was so simple, and so honest, and so real. Over the course of the next 24 hours, all my submitted documents were approved and we just had two days to go to pick up the new mininvan. When we got to the store, it’s not like a dealership with a lot, but it had three beautiful, well lit, very clean, showroom like bays that your vehicle is sitting in for your to do a complete inspection of it. It was very classy. Please note, our particular location does not have the car vending machine just yet. After passing our over check, I hopped in the car and drove it 65 miles home. She ran like a charm and I knew I had 7 days to decide if I wanted to keep her not. At day 3, although I loved her, she didn’t have all the bells and whistles I truly wanted so that evening, I was back on the Carvana site, shopping for a replacement minivan….it’s so easy to do when it gives you results based on your financial settings….I found the new ‘her’ a few hours later. I ordered her up and made the quick call explaining I was swapping and chose to have the vehicle delivered instead of going there to save time. The whole swap process took 2 days…they pulled up right to my house with my next new minivan. In my eyes, she was perfect, but I found a flaw before she was even off the truck. There was a huge bolt in the back tire. I was so disappointed. But Carvana took care of that so amazingly over the top…..they still brought her off the truck so I can check out the interior, test drive it, etc. We found a few more things that we felt should be fixed…minor things. Carvana took note of the items, and took the vehicle back on the truck but promised me (because I really wanted her that day) they would bring her back with a new tire….they kept their promise, three hours later
