Aston Martin DB5, £650,000

Aston Martin DB5

The Aston Martin DB5 is synonymous with classic performance and luxury design, becoming one of the most famous vintage cars in existence thanks to its gorgeous design and a leg up from Hollywood. This version of the DB5 features Sierra Blue bodywork with a black Connolly leather interior and black carpets. It’s a superb example with relatively low mileage and has been cared for dutifully for many years.

Available at Bell Sport & Classic.

Lexus LFA Nürburgring Package

Lexus LFA Nürburgring Package

If you’re looking for a car that combines great performance on the track with characterful history, the Lexus LFA Nürburgring Package from 2013 should be a serious contender. At the time of its launch it laid down one of the fastest times on the Nürburgring (a famously difficult track in Germany) of just 7:14. This white edition is numbered 482 of 500 and is only one of 64 to receive the Nürburgring Package giving it an extra 10hp, faster gear changes and upgraded bodywork.

Available at Bingo Sports World.

Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Black Series, AED 1,699,000 (approx. £370,000)

Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Black Series

Looking at the more modern end of the automotive spectrum, the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Black Series is an absolute powerhouse of a car. The menacing styling with eye-catching orange and black colouration is bold and characterful while beneath the bonnet lurks the monstrous 4.0L V8 Biturbo engine. That much power combined with a super lightweight carbon fibre bodywork and trim means that each press of the pedal is like stepping on a nuclear powerplant.

Available at F1 Motors.

The Little Car Company Ferrari Testa Rossa J

The Little Car Company Ferrari Testa Rossa J

If you haven’t come across The Little Car Company, you’re missing out. They create the most beautiful, miniaturised versions of classic cars you have ever seen. This is the Ferrari Testa Rossa J, a 75% reproduction of the Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa capable of a brisk 80 kph (approx. 50 mph). It’s an officially licenced Ferrari product, which means it was built using the original Ferrari plans and drawings from the highest quality materials and parts.
