Classic Ris­ers As­ton Martin DBS

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News - David Simister

You only have to look at the lat­est prices from Bon­hams’ As­ton Martin sale on 13 May to see that the DBS isn’t the bar­gain it once was – but it’s hard to be­lieve just how much val­ues have in­creased for a GT long un­der­rated by the mar­ket. Had you shopped around back in 2002 you could have picked one up for well un­der £20k, but prices took off in the lat­ter half of the last decade. You’re now look­ing at nearer £75k for a good six-pot model, and con­sid­er­ably more for one of the later V8s. DBS val­ues have been sucked up­wards by buy­ers priced out of DB4-6 mod­els – it’s worth re­mem­ber­ing that a good DB5 could still be snapped up for less than £50k 15 years ago, even with a healthy queue of would-be own­ers. Today, if you are look­ing for an As­ton that’s still within the reach of mere mor­tals we’d def­i­nitely rec­om­mend a DB7.
