A brand that's had a rollercoaster ride in recent times, most recently in the aftermath of being unloaded by Ford into the safe hands of Prodrive genius Dave Richards - a man who understands. The cars epitomise the heritage down to the last detail, which can obviously include fragility and unreliability.
Plush interior, bespoke body, not too Toyota-ish, city cars just went luxury. And in a good way.
Purest class, and doubly delicious to those in the know for being the car that kick-started Aston's renaissance. A brawny, sexy GT with a V12 under the bonnet.
Could have suspension made from bamboo for all we care – all will be forgotten once you put the roof down and hear that 6.0-litre V12.
Aston said no journalist would drive a One-77. So, here’s Top Gear’s drive review of the One-77.
A ball-aching beauty of a saloon and a proper poke in the eye for Porche's Panamera Turbo. Yes, it's £150k, but it's got four seats. That's £37k each.
Muscular Brit in an Italian suit. And look, it fits! Bespoke tailoring costs, mind...
Bye, bye, DB9-inspired DBS, hello One-77-inspired Vanquish. My, how familiar you are to drive...
£84,995 - £99,995
The smallest ‘proper’ Aston, the Vantage manages to fit in full-fat Aston goodness.
£93,995 - £108,995
You could argue that there’s a fraction more scuttle shake
and imprecision than with the coupe. Or you could just look at it. The second
option is the correct one.
