1966 Aston Martin DB5 Convertible 'Vantage' spec: £1,524,700
Lets start with the most expensive Aston Martin sold over the weekend, this rather delightful DB5 drop top. Gorgeous, innit?
It’s one of only 123 DB5 Convertibles ever made, and of that, just one of 39 in left-hand-drive. Why LHD? It was originally sold in the States, but following an accident in the 1970s, was ‘laid up’.
It was then sourced by a Brit in the 1980s, who ordered a new chassis and body, and won some concours events. It was then sold again, repainted silver, and had its 4.0-litre straight six upgraded to the higher-powered Vantage spec (around 315bhp, up from 282bhp).
