Over the years, Aston Martin has been responsible for many, many wonderful vehicles, a huge portion of which we've all lusted after. Today, I'm going to list my five very favorite Aston Martin models in the brand's history -- a list that includes some rather unorthodox choices, especially considering how many great cars Aston Martin has made.

Aston Martin Cygnet

I love weird cars, and the Aston Martin Cygnet isn't just one of the weirdest Aston Martin models, but also one of the weirdest cars ever made. It was a super-tiny Toyota hatchback (branded as the Scion iQ in the United States), except it was ... an Aston Martin. Made to bring Aston into compliance with emissions and fuel economy regulations, the Cygnet was truly bizarre -- and only sold in Europe. I've seen a few on the road, and I'm always absolutely thrilled when I do.

1960s Aston Martin DB5

It may be a cliche, but it's a cliche for a reason: The DB5 is the first Aston Martin most people see, given its success in the James Bond world, and it's still the most famous Aston of all time. As a result, you may roll your eyes at seeing it on this list, but the simple truth is this: It's absolutely, beautifully, incredibly gorgeous, and it always has been. The DB5 is the best representation of Aston's beautiful "vintage" era, and it obviously belongs on this list.

1970s-1980s Aston Martin Lagonda

The Aston Martin Lagonda is one of the craziest luxury sedans in history, with its absolutely bizarre interior and ridiculous styling that truly resembled an anteater. I can't think of another car I find quirkier, or weirder, and I'm thrilled I had the chance to experience a Lagonda earlier this year. The Lagonda certainly isn't the most sought-after Aston model -- in fact, it's one of the least sought-after -- but it'll always be one of my favorites.

Aston Martin One-77

The Aston Martin One-77 was, disappointingly, never sold in North America. But it's still an absolutely beautiful car, and probably the pinnacle of modern Aston Martin, as it had a seven-figure price tag and a production run of just 77 units for the entire planet. The One-77 also boasted a 750-horsepower V12 and a supposed top speed of around 220 miles per hour, putting it squarely into supercar territory.

2000s Aston Martin Vanquish

It may seem like a weird decision to include a mostly-depreciated early-2000s Aston Martin on this list, but I've always loved the Vanquish. To me, it was a return to form for Aston Martin after the mediocre DB7 in the 1990s, and I still think it's one of the best-looking modern cars in existence. It's especially wonderful if it's had a manual transmission swap to replace the original and mediocre sequential manual transmission, which Aston Martin offers to do at the factory.
