Over £5m Worth Of Classic Aston Martins Sold At Recent Auction

May 13th saw over £5 million worth of classic Aston Martins sold at the annual Aston Martin sale, hosted by Bonhams.

Among the models sold was a beautiful 1964 DB5 (famous for being James Bond's car of choice) which fetched a whopping £561,500, making it the top lot of the day.

Other 'DB' models sold, including a 1961 DB4 'Series III' 4.2-litre Sports Saloon, bought for £399,100, and a 1970 DB6 Mark 2 Vantage Sports Saloon for an impressive £382,300.

In amongst the classic Aston Martins were a few newer models too, including a 1996 V8 Sportsman Estate Car (one of only three in the world!) which sold for £309,500.

Head of Bonhams Motoring Department, Tim Schofield, said, "Even in our 18th year at Aston Martin Works, we are seeing a continued interest and enthusiasm for our sale.

"Bonhams prides itself on the breadth of its offerings at auction, and despite its single-marque status, this sale is no different."

Andy Palmer, CEO of Aston Martin, added, "We are very proud of our heritage at Aston Martin so it is fascinating to hear about the histories of the cars that come up for sale at these auctions. Some of our cars have led extremely interesting lives."

We have no doubt!

Among many other upcoming car auctions, Bonhams will be hosting the Goodwood Festival of Speed Sale on 30th June 2017. There are some beautiful cars up for grabs, but we are in love with the 1955 Austin-Healey 100 BN2 Roadster. I mean, just look at it! What a gorgeous colour.
