Classic Risers Aston Martin DBS
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.
