1965 Aston Martin DB5

Last Wednesday at an auction in London, a superb Aston Martin DB5 from 1965 that belonged to George Harrison managed to fetch $549,553. The car was won by an unidentified Beatles fan from Houston, Texas. The organizers of the auction mentioned that the vehicle went for approximately $235,000 over its estimate.

The Aston Martin DB5 in question is wearing a platinum silver finish and has an elegant black Connolly leather interior along with chrome wire wheels. According to the auction house, the car was built in late 1964 and it has been driven for only 22,000 miles, and it hasn’t shown any signs of “major mechanical maladies.”
