Martin, Aston Martin


Ok, I know technically Sean Connery drove a DB5 in Goldfinger (not pictured above), but watching the Bond films as a boy really cemented Aston Martin as the quintessential British cool for me – beautiful curves (echoing something I could only innocently wonder at), raw power and effortless style – one day I would have one…

Well, this year I was almost one step closer – maybe not that DB5, but it turns out Aston Martin have resumed production on the DB4 GT racing classic – a run of 25 will leave Newport Pagnell from October 2017. Sadly, had they not already been allocated I still would probably have struggled to get the £1.5 million price tag together.

One day… Maybe…
