Auction Block: 1965 Aston Martin DB5 Vantage Convertible

Feb 16, 2021

Category: Rides

When you think Aston Martin DB5, you undoubtedly picture the James Bond car: a 1964 silver coupe. But Aston made their stunning grand tourer in a number of different configurations, and one of the most exceptional is this 1965 DB5 Vantage Convertible that’s currently up for sale.

The Aston Martin DB5 is already a rare car, and finding a convertible version is an even more difficult task. Finding a Vantage-powered convertible like this one is almost impossible, as it’s one of only seven that were ever produced. The Vantage engines increased the horsepower of the regular DB5’s inline-six by 40 ponies, offering a sizable performance boost to 325 total hp. This gorgeous example is finished in stunning Peony Red with a tan Connolly leather interior complete with camel Wilton wool carpets. Over $200,000 documented restorations have been made to the car, including a professional conversion to left-hand drive in 2005. This ultra-rare 1965 Aston Martin DB5 Vantage Convertible is currently on offer through RM Sotheby’s private sales and is listed for $1,295,000.

Purchase: $1,295,000
