25 ASTON MARTIN DBS/V8
PRICE RANGE £32,500-120,000
The DBS was, until just a few years ago, the affordable route into classc Aston Martin ownership, but rising values of other six-cylinder models have hiked up values. The V8 retains its popularity, both with enthusiasts and (whisper it) investors.
The later Virage is now the entry-point for big V8 Astons, but even their values are beginning to gain ground in terms of popularity.
