Description

First registered in 1965 this exceptional DB5 delights in its original condition and colour specification, of Dubonnet Rosso with Black hides. A low mileage example with a highly detailed and comprehensive service and ownership file, spanning over 45 years of use. Clearly much loved and cherished by its previous owners, regardless of cost.

A successor to the DB4, the DB5 was introduced in 1964 and remains the first production Aston Martin to be equipped with a 5-speed gearbox, electric windows with tinted glass and twin fuel filler caps. With greater refinement and more performance than its predecessors the DB5 has become widely acknowledged as the most famous car in the world, no doubt as a result of the model’s association with the world’s favourite fictional secret agent, Commander James Bond.

Rare to market and exceptionally well cared for with just 55,000 miles recorded, this example is one of less than 900 coupes manufactured for global distribution and retains its original matching numbers engine and 5 speed transmission. Both rebuilt by respected specialists in recent years, the engine is to 4.2 litre specifications. Chassis restored and bodily refinished, this distinctive car, stands out in being one of the few remaining, in this period popular and original colour scheme.

Prepared and serviced in our workshops, this well sorted and highly enjoyable driving car, is supplied serviced and prepared, with its comprehensive service and restoration history file, 12 months warranty and road side support.
