RM Sotheby’s inaugural ‘Evening with Aston Martin’ sale in Monterey in August will feature a stunning range of Classic Aston Martins for sale.
If you love a Classic Aston Martin, which we do, and you have very deep pockets, which we don’t, then you need to be in California next month for RM Sotheby’s inaugural ‘Evening with Aston Martin’ sale. Because the range of classic Astons on offer is simply stunning.
Included in the sale is an actual James Bond DB5 (not one of the new ones AML are building) but, Bond celebrity apart, there are some even more appealing Astons on offer.
There’s a 1953 DB3S Works, raced in period by Peter Collins and with a history including 24 Hours of Le Mans, the British Grand Prix, 12 Hours of Sebring and the Mille Miglia.
There’s also a range of DB5 models – apart from the Bond car – including a 1964 DB5 (without reserve), a 1963 DB5 Convertible, which appears to be the Earls Court show car and has been restored by Aston Martin works, and a 1965 DB5 Shooting Brake by Radford expected to fetch at least £1 million.
If that’s not enough, there’s a RHD 1961 DB4 GT with an ex-Stirling Moss engine (fitted in period by Aston) and a short chassis Volante expected to fetch over £1 million.
There’s also some more modern stuff too, including a couple of V8 Zagatos – including the last V8 Vantage Zagato built – and a 2018 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Coupe.
Paul Spires of Aston Martin Works, said:
The inaugural RM Sotheby’s sales is, without question, a highlight of the Aston Martin heritage year, and it will surely establish itself as a mainstay not only of the global Aston Martin calendar but of the classic sports car collectors’ schedule. I know we will witness rare and exceptional Aston Martins, such as this remarkable DB3S, find new homes with buyers around the world – underlining once again the global significance of this great British sports car company.
The RM Sotheby’s Evening with Aston Martin sale is in Monterey on 15 August 2019.
