The rarest of beauties

A rare classic has made its way onto Trade Me’s pages and car enthusiasts are loving it. The Aston Martin DB5 was made famous thanks to Sean Connery’s turn as James Bond in the 1964 classic Goldfinger.

Now a model of that very vintage is available to whatever lucky Kiwi buyer has a cool $1.2 million to make it their own. If you think that’s pricey, the Goldfinger DB5 sold at auction back in 2010 for more than NZ$5 million. 

To understand how rare a classic of this quality is in New Zealand, there are only five Aston Martin DB5’s publicly registered in the country and the one up for sale is the oldest.

The seller brought this stunner into the country after buying it in London. He has kept it in premium original condition, with just a touch of 100,000kms on the engine no doubt mostly run up on some classic Kiwi road trips. It even includes the original 1963 car manual.
