Perhaps the best known Aston Martin of all time, due to its starring role in the James Bond film Gold Finger, the DB5 was produced from 1964 to 1965 and a total of 1,021 cars were built. As well as being produced in saloon form, the DB5 was also available as a convertible or drophead. Aston martin DB5 convertibles found only 123 lucky owners in the mid-1960s, each paying around $10,000. These low numbers were due to the disruption in production that the convertibles caused. The straight six, 4-liter engine was designed by Tadek Marek, and all but the first DB5s had the new ZF five speed gearbox and other luxury equipment. This car has won numerous awards at Aston Martin Owners Club Concours.
Aston Martin's reputation was long-established as a low-volume producer of exquisite sports cars by the time the DB-5 was introduced in 1963. This car was originally restored in 1986, and shown at the Pebble Beach Concours in 1988. It also received the People's Choice award at the 2002 Greenwich Concours.Also photographed at :
