Top five Aston Martin cars

Founded just over a hundred years ago, Aston Martin has established themselves as one of the marquee names in British motorcars, up there with Bentley and Jaguar as the cars British people are proud to call their own. Over the years, they have produced some really beautiful cars. Here’s our pick for the top five Aston Martin cars of all time.

Aston Martin Vanquish (2017)

The most recent Aston Martin is also one of the best. First produced back in 2012, the car has long been in development since the turn of the 21st century. The original prototype was designed as part of Ford’s ownership of the famous marquee. Like its famous ancestor, it too has been a Bond car, turning invisible in Die Another Day.

Aston Martin DB1

The first car to bear the initials of new company owner David Brown, the DB1 was based on the car’s Atom prototype. The early traits that would become Aston Martin’s trademark – its wide front grille and round spotlights – the DB1 is the forerunner of all the fantastic Aston Martin’s built since. Well except for…

Aston Martin Lagonda

Some Aston Martin purists might be wondering why this outlier is on the list? True it forsakes the sleek curves that make the other cars so special, but it’s bold straight lines and futuristic control panel have made it a collector’s item.

Aston Martin One-77

The most exclusive car Aston Martin ever made, only 77 of these beautiful and expensive supercars were made. The One-77 also has the world’s most powerful naturally aspirated engine. What does that mean? It means it doesn’t require a turbocharger or supercharger to intake air into the engine, relying solely on atmospheric pressure. This car is a breathtaking piece of engineering.

Aston Martin DB5

Quite possibly one of the most iconic cars ever built, the Aston Martin DB5 is most famous for its role in the Bond films, having first appeared on screen back in Goldfinger. But it’s not just a Bond car. It’s a fantastic “Grand tourer” designed by the iconic Italian coachbuilders at Superleggera.
