Paul McCartney’s 1964 Aston Martin DB5 fetches $495,000 under the hammer


Paul McCartney’s Aston Martin DB5 was all set to be a show-stopper for RM Auctions’ Battersea Evolution that was help recently at London, and the 1964 model didn’t disappoint. Estimated to fetch between £300,000 ($480,860) and £380,000 ($609,090), the vehicle obeyed its surveyors, earning a neat £307,000 ($495,000) under the hammer. Described as one of the first Aston owned by the dashing Beatles member, the car became his just before his 1964 tour and he held on to the automobile for six years with 40,000 miles on the odometer.

The insides are of the Sierra Blue coupe feature a Motorola radio, the Philips Auto-Mignon record player. After this sale though, this is the second most expensive 1964 cars owned by any Beatle. Last year, George Harrison’s platinum-colored 1964 DB5 earned £310,000 ($496,890), but John Lennon Ferrari 330 GT 2+2 didn’t go under the hammer because of “vendor’s remorse.” When that baby comes up, cash registers will ring link crazy!
