Paul McCartney’s Aston Martin
James Bond isn’t the only Brit who has a fondness for Aston Martins. Sir Paul McCartney bought this 1964 DB5 shortly after The Beatles groundbreaking appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show and logged 40,000 miles before selling it in 1970. After a five year restoration, this rebuilt DB5’s auction is expected to fetch upwards of $2 million
