Up for auction tomorrow, this 1965 Aston Martin DB5 Coupé is expected to reach £300,000-£360,000, but that’s worth every penny for a car that screams style and sophistication such as this. The classic car boasts a 282 bhp, 3,995 cc DOHC inline six-cylinder engine, triple SU carburettors, ZF five-speed manual gearbox, independent front suspension with upper and lower control arms, coil springs, anti-roll bar, and four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes. Offered for the first time from a private Swiss collector, RM Auctions ensure a copy of the original build sheet and a BMIHT certificate come with the purchase too. Oh yeah, and James Bond drove it in Goldfinger too.
