Aston Martin DB5 to be auctioned next month image

A classic 1965 Aston Martin DB5, which is looking like the one driven by James Bond, is going to be offered for sale by Silverstone Auctions, during the NEC Classic Motor Show, next month.

If you’re looking for a classic car to add to your garage and you have at least a six-figure amount in your bank accounts than this might be for you, especially if you love either British vehicles or the James Bond series, as the model in question is a 1965 Aston Martin DB5. The classic sports car is expected to fetch between 280,000 GBP and 310,000 GBP and it’s coming in right-hand drive, with matching engine and chassis numbers.

“This is probably one of the most sought-after models in the world and it’s easy to see why. It’s so much more than just a motor car, its style personified and possibly one of the best British cars ever made”, said the Silverstone Auctions managing director, Nick Whale.

The Aston Martin DB5 has been produced in 1,023 units between 1963 and 1965 and it came in three body styles, two-door coupe, two-door convertible and two-door shooting brake. The model was taking its power from a 3,995cc inline six-cylinder engine, producing 282 HP (210 kW) at 5,500 rpm and 390 Nm (288 lb-ft) of torque, available at 3,850 rpm.
