Cygnet With pro­duc­tion only last­ing two years, this is a sure-fire rare clas­sic. It’s the Al­le­gro-shaped Van­den Plas 1500 remixed for the 21st cen­tury – a sheep in wolf’s cloth­ing.

James sadlier man­ag­ing edi­tor

DB4 hav­ing driven and en­joyed a dB4 very re­cently, it left me want­ing more. It was such a smooth yet ex­cit­ing ride and had all the lux­ury an As­ton should have in­side. I wouldn’t mind a dB4 Gt next time!

Ger­vais sey­mour pro­duc­tion edi­tor

Coal Scut­tle the 1914 Coal scut­tle – the first As­ton martin (ac­tu­ally an Isot­taFras­chini chas­sis fit­ted with a Coven­try-simplex en­gine).

David brown as­so­ci­ate edi­tor

Umc 272 umc 272 – david Brown’s per­sonal dB2 (no re­la­tion) un­til it was used by the works rac­ing team in 1950, driven by lance mack­lin.

DB7 VAN­TAGE It was cru­elly robbed of a Bond ap­pear­ance, but its role of fir­ing mis­siles at speed cam­eras in johnny

english more than made up for it.

V8 ZAGATO It man­ages to blend mas­culin­ity and mad­ness in a way that only As­ton martin and Zagato can.

1976 Lagonda mainly be­cause it’s so retro-tas­tic. sim­ply look­ing at it en­sures you grow an afro and be­come po­lit­i­cally in­cor­rect. It’s also ugly as sin – I just love it.
