Aston Martin dream ‘may come true on a budget’

People who fear they may never be able to afford an Aston Martin could make their dream come true at auction.

According to British Car Auctions (BCA), it may be possible to drive a car just like secret agent James Bond’s for a five-figure sum or less.

This year, a number of DB7 models from the 1990s have been getting more affordable.

Similarly, the AM V8 Aston Martins are sometimes fetching prices of less than £10,000.

"You don’t need a six-figure budget to buy a used Aston Martin," said BCAs Simon Henstock.

He added: "We regularly have them entered for sale in our Top Car events."

The latest Aston Martin DBS was featured in James Bond’s last adventure, Casino Royale.

Daniel Craig starred as the secret engine, taking over the role from Pierce Brosnan, becoming the first blonde-haired incarnation of the hero in the process.
