Legend Sir Paul McCartney's 1964 Aston Martin DB5 is going to auction with Bonhams. The car, which was made famous by Sean Connery playing James Bond in Goldfinger in 1964 was delivered to McCartney just a few days after the premiere of the film.

Ironically, the car is to be auctioned on New Bond Street on 2nd December and is expected to sell for between £1.25 and £1.5 million. That's more than 350 times what Sir Paul paid for it 53 years ago! The car has been previously sold at auction in 2012, where a collector purchased it for £344,000.

Paul McCartney's number plate, "64 MAC" is to also be sold with the car. Sir Paul owned the DB5 for six years, clocking up just over 40,000 miles during this period. Back when he purchased it, the car was featured in Sierra Blue with Black Leather. The car has since undergone a complete restoration and is now finished in Silver Birch with red leather interior. This is to match the car featured in the Goldfinger film.

  • Sadly not a sympathetic restoration, more like a butiful renovation that takes away the car’s true history. New leather seats that Paul never sat on??? Change the chosen colour by Paul to be a Bond lookalike. Same thing happens to the Bond car. Lost all its patina. They never re painted the Abbey Road recording studio to retain its magic. It may as well be a brand new car. More like an Only Fools And Horses broom.

  • The irony of Sir Paul McCartney getting a car with manual trans. Perhaps maybe he was thinking ahead looking down the road as to not losing it in a divorce.
