Super-desirable Aston-Martin DB4 tempts collectors at Monterey. If you had to come up with a discovery to make the knees of a DB-Aston fan tremble, you couldn’t do a lot better than this 1961 Aston Martin DIM.

World war Z. Serial slammer, Niall O’Dowd, kills it yet again with this super stanced and rather dapper BMW Z4 E85... You may be looking at these pages thinking this dude and his number plate look familiar, and you would be right.

It might be the most undesirable of all the Porsche 911s, but it's still a frickin 911, and a bloody good one at that! Previously it was the classic lines of 964 that were getting all the attention, but the more modem 996 can look the bollocks with a few choice mods! Not only that, but you get all the creature comforts of a modern day machine, the water-cooled engine, 300bhp and shit loads of charisma too!
