To the casual observer, the 1963 DB5 is virtually indistinguishable from a late model DB4 Vantage; the DB5 is essentially a four-litre version of the DB4. Initially fitted with the four-speed David Brown gearbox, the vast majority of cars received the superior five speed gearbox either as an option or later as standard fitting. So why is the DB5 so often thought of as the quintessential Aston Martin? Without doubt, this is due to a Silver Birch example featuring in the 1964 James Bond film, Goldfinger, complete with modifications and hidden weaponry. With 007 behind the wheel of the sensational sports GT, demand outstripped supply - the factory just couldn't capitalise fast enough on the marketing success of the DB5. Even today, DB5's are highly regarded and change hands for sums significantly greater than almost anything else in the range. Its production, however, was fairly short-lived, ending in September 1965 after 1,021 had been manufactured.

Originally registered on 1st March 1965 this Aston Martin bears its original registration number of DRP 3C. This DB5 benefitted from a bare metal respray in 1990 and still presents in good order today, the Goodwood Green coachwork is complemented by black interior which was retrimmed at the same time, the 30 year old leather now has a delightful patina. The 3995cc six-cylinder engine fired up immediately when requested and sounded delightful, this is mated to a manual gearbox making this a great fun car to drive. Offered for sale with a great history folder confirming this Aston Martin has been very well cared for. Without doubt one of the prettiest and most iconic cars ever manufactured, a DB5 always causes interest when coming to the market and we expect this car to continue the trend. The association of the Aston Martin marque with James Bond started with the DB5 and the model has retained superiority in the market place ever since.

The health and safety of both our customers and team remains the utmost priority, we are therefore operating to COVID-19 guidelines throughout viewing and auction day.
