Description
 
ORIGINAL LEFT HAND DRIVE ASTON MARTIN DB5 -ONLY 10 TO 15% OF THE ASTON MARTIN DB5’S HAVE BEEN PRODUCED AS LEFT HAND DRIVE EXAMPLES -MATCHING NUMBERS -ORIGINAL COLOR SCHEME -FITTED WITH AIRCONDITIONING SINCE NEW If you type into Google, Aston Martin DB5 the results are impressive and almost every result shows the name of mister Bond. Not strange because in the history of big-screen product placement, this car, the Aston Martin DB5 from the 1964 film Goldfinger, is perhaps the most successful. The combination of beautiful Italian design, British engineering and clever gadgets from special effects expert John Stears set the tone for Bond films and the publicity almost certainly saved Aston Martin from one of its perennial financial crises. The Aston Martin DB5 is regarded by many people as the most beautiful Aston Martin ever produced. The DB5 followed up the DB4 in 1964 and was only on the market for 2 years. Just 1021 examples have been produced over these two years. This specific example is in a very beautiful cosmetic condition. The car has just been finished from a full body restoration whereby the Aston Martin has been resprayed in it?s original color which is called platinum. It took quite a while before we took the decision to spray this Aston Martin in white as every DB5 is sprayed in Silver Birch. Because of the fact that we like originality we decided to give the Aston Martin its original color and the result is absolutely amazing. Actually this white/platinum color suits the DB5 much more then the more ordinary Silver Birch. We have spoken with owners who decided to respray their DB5 into this fantastic color because it suits the car extremely well. The Aston Martin has been resprayed at the respray company who is doing all the work for Aston Martin heritage in The Netherlands and the quality of the work is superb. The quality of the paintwork of this Aston Martin DB5 is extremely nice as described above. The chrome work is like new and more important, the door fittings and gaps on this particular Aston are excellent. The window glass on the right show a small scratch. The interior of the Aston Martin is absolutely fantastic. The leather shows a superb patina but is absolutely not broken or whatsoever. In our opinion the leather could not be nicer. The black leather combines extremely nice with the exterior color (the color is named Platinum). All the meters are working properly. The Aston is fitted since new with the optional airconditioning. This specific DB5 is one of the best driving DB5’s we have ever owned. The car handles superbly. The engine runs very well and is extremely powerful. The gearbox is shifting excellent and does not make any synchromesh noises when shifting to a lower gear. By driving this DB5, you definitely feel yourself as being James Bond.
