Beautiful car.

Reserve - I have mixed feelings. They don't tell you up front because they don't want to scare people off. But the fact that you're afraid to let people know ahead means you probably think you're asking a bit much.

I know it's completely different but I've learned on ebay that with no reserve you usually get as much or more than you thought you would. Just a bit scary the first few times when there wasn't much action till the very end.

My 2 cents.

With Sotheby's and Gooding at the same time in AZ they picked the wrong auction for that car. Knowing previous Barrett patterns, it is probably estimated $1M plus to qualify for a reserve.

I wonder what these would be worth if it wasn't the iconic Bond car? Do we think the pricing of DB4s are also bolstered by that? (arguably DB4 'may' be slightly more stylish IMO. Has a bit more F-car look of the era?) DB6 is more of the $4-500k listing price now (but arguably less stylish IMO than a DB5) DB7 is a different car.


BTW I am not complaining about the DB5 being the Bond car ICON it is! That is part of the charm of how many of us owners got here. Guilty as charged.


I just don't think the is another car maker so blessed by a well placed marketing idea over the decades.

Undoubtedly the Bond movie coupled with the DB5 made Aston Martin what it is .
The DB5 is a beautiful iconic car even without the Bond association but would it fetch the prices in now demands .....probably not .
Im predicting 1.3mil minimum possibly as high as 1.6mil for this example , the colour combination is perfection for that car and era .

Last years B-J Scottsdale auction, I thought same thing when they had a pristine black black DB5. Initially thought could get it under book, it sold for nearly 2M, as I recall.

I suspect this one will be go for 1.5M with all their fanfare.

B-J is no longer muscle cars like years ago. They evolved with the generations and what market is looking for. Not Aston related, they rose the tides with pickup and restro mod prices.

Would I bring a classic Aston to B-J? Depend on how they will market it, they do draw the largest crowds and fan base. RM, Gooding and Bonhams are great choices too. Even Wideworld is picking up their game.

My estimate of $900,000 likely was low. I don't follow the market as closely as I once did.
I do know that an exceptional Ferrari 330 GTC can be purchased for 650k.
Btw, a DB4 played an important role in the 1962 movie Phaedra with Anthony Perkins and Melina Mercouri.

Btw, this car was only bid to 800k.
This was followed with a high bid of only 450k for a Ferrari Daytona convertible (conversion).
These are low numbers indeed

Yea, a little disappointing but it had a reserve. Like any auction it takes the right guy at the right time, and when you get 2 the fireworks happen.

I am seriously considering purchasing a 330 GTC.
Owned one for 10 years.
Hoping the prices continue to descend.

Barret seems to focus more on American muscle cars with the occasional exotic thrown in. Agree, I think it would have done better elsewhere.

Ford GT owners were all celebrating last night.

I would guess that 1.4 to 1.5 mil is what the owner thinks it is worth. But under those numbers is where it may start to stall in bidding. It seems that since the famously owned AM that have showed up makes people thing that there car is in the same price range. Also as we all know it depends on who is in the crowed and how bad they want the car. I know as soon as I say this it will not happen but it will not make the reserve. There is a point where you will never get your money back so buyers are looking long term for a safe return when it is time to sell. Those old AM cost so much to repair that may play into it also. But having said all of that, if had the cash I would look to buy it.

The DB5 is clearly a blue chip collector car.
In general their value generally paralled the Ferrari 330 GTC
I always favored the Ferrari: V12, independent rear suspension, 598 built, true two seater, etc.
Can't deny however that the Aston is clearly more "famous"
I do agree that B-J is not the place to sell this type of collector car.
