RM Sotheby’s has auctioned off one of the three surviving 1965 Aston Martin DB5 cars seen in the “Goldfinger” film. The car went across the block at their “An Evening with Aston Martin” event in Monterey, where it sold for an astonishing $6,385,000. This price makes it the most valuable DB5 ever sold at an auction. Bidding took place between six parties and it lasted four-and-a-half minutes.
“It was an honor to offer the iconic James Bond 007 Aston Martin DB5 alongside our partners at Aston Martin Works and Aston Martin Lagonda,” said Barney Ruprecht, Car Specialist at RM Sotheby’s. “We are beyond thrilled with tonight’s fantastic result and proud to have set a new record for the most valuable DB5 sold at auction. Beyond this new auction record, the enormous amount of interest in the car and excitement surrounding it ahead of the auction solidifies its status as the “most famous car in the world,” along with the hobby’s great respect for the Aston Martin brand.”
RM Sotheby’s Monterey sale is set to continue through August 17. For more information, click the button below.
