Back in the 1960s, 1970s and even the 1980s we only thought we were going fast. Today's cars offer staggering performance improvements.

The 191mph, 510bhp Aston Martin DBS launched in 2008 has gained 420bhp and almost 100mph over the 1948 93mph 90bhp Aston Martin 2-Litre Sports 'DB 1' - quite a leap in sixty years.
