I'm in a similar situation as yourself - have a few exotic cars, do much of the work on them myself, etc... I was thinking about a DB9, doing some reading, research, yadda yadda, until I ran across a youtube video detailing the catastrophic engine failure of a low mileage DB9.

The obvious oil starvation problems of the engine are bad enough, but the fact that the cars are literally built with off-the-self Ford pistons is unforgivable. Yup, that's right, generic Ford pistons, and who knows what else... I always scoffed when people derided these V12s as nothing more than two Mondeo engines joined together, but take a look at that video.

Apparently there are a few good reasons why these cars have lost 75% of their value.
