    Price:  £165,500

    29 October 2008 by Ben Oliver

    Not even James Bond has driven the Aston Martin DBS Touchtronic yet. Quantum of Solace is just about to open but Daniel Craig must content himself with the standard manual DBS. We’ve already driven...

    22 May 2008 by Ben Barry

    It might look exactly the same, but there's a new 4.7-litre V8 in this Aston Martin Vantage. The suspension, steering, interior and transmission  of the V8 Vantage has also been significantly...

  • Aston Martin DB9 facelift (2008) driven review

    Price:  £116,950

    07 May 2008 by Adam Towler

    The suave DB9 has formed the backbone of Aston Martin’s revival in the noughties under the rein of the company's German boss Ulrich Bez. Now, some five years into its life, there’s a revised model,...

  • Aston Martin Vantage N24 (2008) review

    Price:  £100,000

    21 April 2008 by Nick Trott

    We at CAR have a soft spot for the Aston Martin Vantage N24. Back in 2006 we sensed there was a story brewing when Aston Martin announced that it would enter a road-legal V8 Vantage in the legendary...

    Price:  £150,000

    19 March 2008 by Nick Trott

    Aston Martin's V12 Vantage RS. Big engine, little car. It’s a concept many of the great performance cars have employed. Take a powerful engine from your biggest car and stuff it into your smallest car...

  • Aston Martin V8 Vantage N400 (2008) review

    Price:  £94,000

    19 February 2008 by Tim Pollard

    It’s a sign of the times at Gaydon that Aston Martin has produced three new models since it walked away from Ford ownership in 2007. Sounds impressive until you realise that all of them are special...

  • Aston Martin DBS (2008) review

    Price:  £160,000

    19 October 2007 by Chris Chilton

    I know Bond drove it last year but what’s all the fuss about? It’s a DB9 with a bodykit isn’t it? Steady on. The DBS is certainly based on the DB9 but then so is the DBR9 racer that won the GT1 class...

  • Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster (2007) review

    Price:  £91,000

    23 March 2007 by Chris Chilton

    A new Aston Martin convertible? Indeed, but don’t call it that, or even a Volante: this is the Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster. Those five words will set you back £91,000, £8k more than the coupe.

  • Aston Martin DB9 Sports Pack (2006) review

    Price:  £109,345

    02 August 2006 by Chris Chilton

    A special edition Aston, I thought that stuff was reserved for run-out Corsas. You've got the wrong end of the stick, the Sports Pack is an option for Aston owners who prefer to zoom than dawdle. The...
