Aston Martin Vantage. 1972–3 (prod. 70). 2-door saloon. F/R, 3995 cm³ (I6 DOHC). Last of the six-cylinder DBs till DB7 débuted in the 1990s, and post-David Brown (released when Aston Martin was under Company Developments’ ownership). Odd amalgam of the new two-headlamp front end and the outgoing DBS, complete with wire wheels. Engine essentially identical to that of DB5 in Vantage tune. Despite the name, less powerful than the other Aston Martin on offer at the time, the V8, and was, in fact, the entry-level model in the range at the time. Very rare.

Manufacturing location: Newport Pagnell, Milton Keynes, England

Marque: Aston Martin | Model: Aston Martin Vantage | Predecessor: Aston Martin DBS (1967–72) | Successor: Aston Martin DB7
