Description

Frequently the Aston Martin DB5 is called “the most famous car in the world” which of course is based on its ultra-flamboyant appearance in most James Bond flicks. The legendary 007 connection is only half the truth though! DB5s are actually fantastic GTs to drive and their elegant yet purposeful Touring of Milan designed coachwork truly a timeless legend in their own right. With its 4 litre Tarek Marek designed all aluminium inline-6 engine, delivering 263 hp from its four-litre capacity and driving the rear wheels through a ZF 5-speed gearbox, the DB5 was one of the fastest (let alone the most expensive) British GT available at the time. The car we are proud to offer is a right-hand drive example built in 1964 and registered for the first time in Scotland in April 1965. Although lacking all the secret agent’s gadgets, the Aston DB5 was cherished and lovingly maintained throughout its life. After some major mechanical work in 1989/90 an engine overhaul was performed by well-known Aston specialists Ian Mason Ltd who subsequently also took care of the regular maintenance of the car. In 2009 the DB5 was taken over by its last registered owner. Then still painted in “Sherwood green” with a light tan leather interior, the coachwork and interior were restored some years ago and changed to the actual and very elegant combination of “Silver Birch” (an original DB5 colour) with dark red leather. Since October 2022 the car has been in the vendor’s ownership and was driven only sparingly. The Aston is in very good and lovingly cared for condition, and, with English documents, has so far not been cleared through Swiss customs. For a Swiss buyer the Aston will be properly imported into Switzerland and delivered with a fresh MOT. ADDENDUM A review of the vehicle documents showed that in the engine and gearbox overhaul was carried out by Ian Mason in 2001, about 20’000 Miles ago. The body restoration including the new paint was proceeded in April 2013, followed by a rust protection treatment of all cavities in August of the same year. Actually, the car comes with German paperwork, Swiss duty not paid. As stated in the catalogue, for Swiss buyers it will be sold with Swiss duty paid and a fresh Swiss MOT.
