Happy Birthday: Aston DB

Aston Martin is celebrating 70 years of its famous DB models. The initials of famous owner David Brown adorn just under half the company's models - models which are still going strong today.

DB7 (1994-2004)

After selling the company in 1972, it would 22 years before another Aston would be launched wearing the famous DB initials.

But in spite of all that, we reckon it's a straightforward shout for a future classic.
