You Could Be The New Owner Of A Trio Of Ultra-Rare, Classic Aston Martin DB5s

Because of its associations with a certain steely British spy, even the commonest of DB5 coupes commands a pretty hefty sum at auction. However, for all of the car’s silver screen stardom, its value pales in comparison to its more elusive convertible and shooting brake siblings. With this in mind, just take a look at the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity we’ve found for you today.

Esteemed Aston dealer Nicholas Mee & Co. is offering a three-piece Vantage set that runs the gamut of DB5 body styles. The headliner of the lot is undoubtedly the shooting brake, a car originally built for company chairman David Brown and the only one of 12 fitted with the upgraded 322hp 4.0L straight-six. Between the ‘California Sage’ paint and the red interior, it’s truly something special. That being said, the convertible is also a distinguished DB5 in its own right, being among just 123 made and wearing a colorful combination of ‘Caribbean Pearl Blue’ paint and ‘White Gold’ hide. Lastly is a car without which no classic Aston collection would be complete: the DB5 Vantage coupe. Finished exactly as Bond’s was — ‘Silver Birch’ over black — it makes for one iconic piece of automobilia. They can be yours for a scant $5.7M.

Purchase: $5,700,000
