ASTON MARTIN DB4 - 1958-70 (£75,000-1million)

DB4 Drophead or Saloon (Volante)

You had the dinky toy - has the yearning ever gone away? These cars just look better and better with age, but; you'll have to be quick, as prices are climbing to Ferrari 250 levels. You could say the DB4 GT has already got there - one recently sold for £1million.

Why so expensive? Aside from gorgeous looks and aluminium panels lovingly wrapped around a steel frame, there's a home-grown alloy-twin engine, giving DB's true British pedigree.

The DB4/DB4 GT IS THE BEST DRIVER, THE DB5 the best looking, the longer, taller DB6 the 'sensible choice despite being labeled the lardy one - in reality there's only 18kg in it. No power steering or air conditioning as standard in the earlier cars though.

DB5 - immortalised as 007's car, but an ejection seat wasn't standard!

SPECIFICATIONS
ENGINE : 3670-3995cc, six-cylinder dohc
POWER : 240-325bhp
PERFORMANCE : 0-60mph - 8.1sec
TOP SPEED : 141-148mph
FUEL CONSUMPTION : 15mpg

To good motoring!
Dave Clarkson

QUOTE OF THE DAY

PERSISTENCE
The majority of men meet with failure because of their lack of persistence in creating new plans to take the place of those which fail.
