Aston Martin exotic cars have starred in more than just James Bond flicks. Now the Aston Martin DBS from the show ‘The Persuaders’ is up for grabs at Bonhams auction. I have no idea what The Persuaders is about, but the DBS is about to change hands for a lofty sum.
The 1970 Aston Martin DBS is classic and aggressive. The car has been famous and is well-preserved and now up for grabs at auction.
This 1970 Aston Martin DBS looks more like American Muscle than British flexing. It was created with special mods specifically for its starring role in The Persuaders, and was a prominent point in all 24 episodes of the television series. The two leading stars, Roger Moore and Tony Curtis, both signed the inside of the boot lid.
The Aston Martin DBS was in every episode of the series, making it a recognizable household name. Aston Martin should create a 1970 DBS throwback model.
When the series ended, the DBS had a scant 5,000 miles on it and was given to Aston Martin for some pampering. It was then sold to a private owner for the first time. As it stands, it has now received a full restoration during the 1990s at around 70,000 miles. The interior materials were not damaged during its television starlet days, so the cabin remains in nearly original condition with the same materials. It has been meticulously maintained over the years with annual servicing from Aston Martin.
It will hit the market for the first time in about 45 years at Bonhams auction on May 17th, 2014. The sale that day at Bonhams is the Aston Martin Works, and should be a success.
