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.

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
