The Alan Partridge creator, who is an avid car collector, has owned the four-seater dark blue 1970 Aston Martin DBS V8 since 2011.<br />

Coogan's Partridge character used to drive a beige Rover 800 which was famously grafittied with 'C*ck P*ss Partridge', and he also bought a Lexus IS300 he fondly referred to as 'the Japanese Mercedes' before driving straight into a bollard.
