DB5 goes under the hammer

A version of the iconic Aston Martin DB5 will be taken to Silverstone Auction and sold at the NEC Classic Motor Show next month.  

The car is famed for its part in the James Bond movies and features the same Silver Birch paintwork as the secret agent, with matching engine and chassis number as it is the original right-handed drive model.     

The car which will go to auction spent most of its life in Australia, but recently returned to the UK in 2012 for some refurbishment. The external body work was given some attention, along with a new paint job and reupholstering of the leather interior.

The vehicle comes with a history file documenting all the work that has previously been done on the car as well as images detailing the repairs.

The James Bond classic is expected to sell for around £280,000 to £310,000, and will be one of the first cars to be auctioned, gtspirit.com reports.

Nick Whale, the managing director of Silverstone Auctions told telegraph.co.uk that the DB5 is probably the world's most sought-after car and it is easy to see why.

Mr Whale said: "It's so much more than just a motor car, it's style personified and possibly one of the best British cars ever made."
