Iconic ’64 Aston Martin DB5 Set for the Auction Block in Paris
Artcurial Motorcars is celebrating 10 years of its “Automobiles Sur Les Champs” auction series with a catalog of almost 80 cars. The sale—which will be held Sunday, October 30, in Paris—will see classic cars from across the ages go under the hammer, including models made famous on the big and small screens.
The star of the upcoming Artcurial auction will be a 1964 Aston Martin DB5, like the one driven by James Bond in Goldfinger, estimated at $600,000 to $709,000. Originally a “show model” from the 1964 Paris Motor Show, this particular DB5 is a rare left-hand drive model.
Other prestigious vehicles up for sale include sports cars like a 1964 Alpine M64 berlinette (estimate: $360,000 to $414,000), a Bugatti Type 40 spéciale from 1927 ($272,000 to $327,000) and a Porsche Carrera 3.0L Group V from 1976 ($207,000 to $283,000). Fans of fine Italian automobiles can bid on a 1967 Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 ($196,000 to $240,000), a 1995 Lamborghini Diablo VT ($180,000 to $202,000), or a 1968 Alfa Romeo GTA 1300 Junior ($163,000 to $196,000).
Several more unusual vehicles will also be on the block, with something for almost every budget. The catalog includes two Alfa Romeo Polizia former Italian police cars from 1969 ($16,000 to $22,000) and 1981 ($8,700 to $13,100).
All the cars on sale at the auction will go on display at the Artcurial private garage at 59 Avenue Montaigne in Paris from Oct. 29–30.
