The first of Aston Martin’s V8 Vantage models will be with their new owners this autumn. But place your order today and it could be 2008 before you take delivery – unless you’re prepared to fork out to jump the queue.

Autoworld Prestige, which specialises in introducing buyers to suppliers, is currently offering one of the first V8s, due for delivery in September, for £11k on top of the car’s factory price – likely to be in excess of £80k after options. The company also has a Celest Blue DB9 Volante convertible (right), available as early as May for £145,600 (£21k over list) and a Bentley Flying Spur it can deliver in July for a £1k fee.
