The DB5s you’ll see at the Aston Martin Heritage Festival. 

The year 2023 marks sixty glorious years of the DB5.

Often billed as the “most famous car in the world”, James Bond’s DB5 in Goldfinger became the car everyone desired. It’s regarded by many as the most beautiful Aston Martin produced. Come to the Aston Martin Heritage Festival to see a selection of DB5s parked together like a family. What a family! 

Here are three DB5s attending the festival:

Chassis DB5/1864/R

Owner: Clive Austin

Chassis number 1640

Owner: Rodney McMahon

1965 Aston Martin DB5

Owner: Keith Clements

DB5 owners and all attendees will also be joined by various fabulous traders and experts in conversation on stage, led by Historian for Aston Martin Lagonda (AML), Steve Waddingham. 

Steve Waddingham said: “Aston Martin is celebrating its 110th anniversary this year – a remarkable achievement by any standards – and as part of that, we are all looking forward to another great gathering of Aston Martin and Lagonda cars at the Aston Martin Heritage Festival. 

“I’m very much looking forward to seeing a huge range of our cars on show, spanning the many decades and model types, and I’m sure everyone will be made very welcome by the Trust, be it as a spectator or participant.”
