Detailed History
This fantastic example is finished in a striking Dubonnet, complemented with a Black Hide and also comes complete with an extensive service history.

Produced from 1963 to 1965, a clear evolution of the DB4’s Carrozzeria Touring design, the DB5 is hard to visually differentiate from its DB4 Series V predecessor. It is regarded by many as the most beautiful Aston Martin that carries legendary fame as a star of the silver screen in James Bond films. This is reflected by the adoration it receives worldwide.
