A lucky Texan can now blend Beatle-mania with his James Bond side—he just bought the Aston Martin DB5 owned by George Harrison, lead guitarist for the Beatles! The specimen earned $546,000 on the luxury car auction block in London when it changed hands for the 4th time.
This DB5 is a rare example because it is in its original and unrestored condition. It was delivered new to Harrison in 1965. Since Harrison, the car was preserved in a Museum and was then sold to a collector.
This Aston Martin DB5 has certainly had a rockin’ past, it starred in flicks like Goldfinger and Thunderball and was driven by musical legends! I am assuming Harrison sang in the car…which only makes it cooler. Celebrity-owned luxury cars demand a higher price than their mere mortal counterparts, so the steep sale price is not shocking in the least.
Do you like the 1965 DB5?
Under the hood lies the original 4.0-liter straight-six with 282 horsepower and a top speed of 148 miles per hour.â€¨â€¨Get your own Bond on with our versatile fleet of Aston Martin rentals in a city near you, all new models available for a rate that will pleasantly surprise you!
