The Aston Martin DB5 is a luxury grand tourer that was made by Aston Martin and designed by the Italian coachbuilder Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera.
The high-performance DB5 Vantage was introduced in 1964 featuring three Weber twin-choke 45DCOE side-draft carburettors and revised camshaft profiles, delivering greater top-end performance at the expense of overall flexibility, especially as legendary Webers are renowned as ‘full-throttle’ devices.
This engine produced 315 hp (235 kW). Only 65 DB5 Vantage coupés were built. Chassis no. DB5 1741/L will be up for bid at RM Auctions in Paris on February 3rd, 2015.
