1965 Aston Martin DB5 Shooting Brake

David Brown — the former owner and man who's initials make the "DB" in Aston Martin's lineup — had a problem with the iconic DB5. The car lacked enough room for his polo gear and his dog was chewing up the leather on the seats. Brown brought his dog to a board meeting and tasked the engineers with creating something that would fit his gear, and the result was the DB5 shooting brake. The car proved so popular that customers requested one for themselves, with the conversion being outsourced to Radford coachbuilders. Only 12 were built and four of those were left-hand-drive. This DB5 was ordered new as a shooting brake, which bumped price up to more than twice that of your average English house at the time, making it an extremely expensive car. Sold new in Switzerland, the car has had only three owners and a restoration by the factory. Rare and with some of the best lines in automotive history, this DB5 will be auctioned during the 2019 Monterey Car Week.
