Selling An Aston Martin DB5

Often referred to as “the most famous car in the world,” the Aston Martin DB5 is known worldwide for its role as James Bond’s gadget-filled sports car in the Goldfinger movie. Today, Aston Martin enthusiasts and collectors regard the Aston Martin DB5 as one of the most beautiful production Aston Martins ever created. Although the DB5 would share many of the same characteristics of the DB4 that it replaced, the DB5 would bring about the most significant changes in the DB-line of Aston Martins thus far – most notably under the hood. Launched in 1963, the Aston Martin DB5 boasted a 4.0L engine with three SU carburetors. Fared in headlamps would again be standard, yet the DB5 would offer an all-new full synchromesh five-speed gearbox. Girling disc brakes and 15inch wheels were also now standard. As for factory options, buyers could add electric windows and/or twin hydraulic brake servos. During the production of the DB5 range, a DB5 Vantage was offered with three Weber carburetors and different camshafts to achieve higher performance, while a Convertible option would also be available. The original factory-option steel hard top for the Convertible is an excellent find today.
