This is an opportunity to buy the most recent DB5 to be lovingly restored by the Aston Workshop. The car comes complete with a full body re-spray in Silver Birch, recent gearbox, rebuilt engine, new suspension, brakes and interior (Black).
Although the car will feature all of our latest upgrades, extra options will of course be available and final price will be dependent on the specification required.
An incredible detailed photographic record has been maintained over the last 27 years, and the mileage is documented at 38,968
