Aston Martin and RM Sotheby’s partner for Monterey sale

Aston Martin is eagerly anticipating this year’s inaugural one-make sale at the world-famous Monterey Car Week, which stems from the brand’s new partnership with RM Sotheby’s.

The world’s largest auction house for investment-quality automobiles is already preparing for its Evening of Aston Martin sale on 15 August 2019, with the announcement of initial entries for sale led by a 1964 Aston Martin DB5 offered from 40 years of single private ownership.

Extending the record-setting Monterey sale to three days for 2019, RM Sotheby’s will present a dedicated, single-marque auction on Thursday 15 August 2019 at the Monterey Conference Center, featuring more than 30 of the world’s most sought-after road-going and track-ready Aston Martin sports cars from across the marque’s illustrious 106-year history.

Hand-built at the Aston Martin factory in Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire, the very early 1964 DB5 consigned for the auction is a factory left-hand-drive example, chassis no. DB5/1305/L. Just the fifth DB5 ever produced, and sold new through British Motor Car Distributors in San Francisco to the Washington Fruit & Produce Corporation, the iconic sports car was purchased by the consignor in 1981 off the street in Sausalito, California, and has remained in his private ownership ever since.

Commencing in 2019, RM Sotheby’s annual Aston Martin single-marque sale is sure to become a highlight of Monterey Car Week. For further information on RM Sotheby’s Monterey auction and to view a frequently updated list of entries, please visit
