Profile

The iconic DB5 is as desirable today as it was when launched over 50 years ago.

An evolution of the DB4, the DB5 featured a 4 litre 6 cylinder engine pushing out 282bhp through a 5-speed ZF gearbox. The timeless bodywork was courtesy of the Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera Italian styling house, while the luxuriously appointed interior featured reclining full leather seats and wool carpets.

Expensive at the time, the DB5 has catapulted in value, with mint examples changing hands for almost 1M in today's fervent classics market. Although, what would you expect from James Bond's most recognisable company car!
