International auction house holds curated auction for the British brand

Esteemed auction house Bonhams is set to hold a dedicated Aston Martin auction, taking place on May 19 at The Wormsley Estate in England.

There’s a slew of memorabilia, art and spare parts but of course it’s the cars that are the stars in our eyes.

There are 32 cars on offer (33, if you count a tractor…); blending the British brand’s best of both new and old.

It’s not all prohibitively expensive metal either; with a 1998 DB7 Volante estimated to fetch AU$34,000-$48,000, or a 2013 Aston Martin V12 Vantage Coupe for AU$110,000-$150,000.

A gorgeous Mulliner-coachbuilt 1955 Aston Martin DB2/4 3.0lt is estimated to pull AU$190,000-$220,000, and would be one of our absolute dream buys.

Of course things get pricey very quickly in an auction of this calibre.

The quintessential bond car? A silver 1964 Aston Martin DB5 with five documented owners is estimated to fetch AU$1.2 million to AU$1.3 million.

A more contemporary and slightly more "affordable" 1987 Aston Martin V8 Vantage in desirable X-pack specification is estimated to pull AU$600,000-AU$670,000.

The auction is headlined by two very unique vehicles; one is a 1986 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Zagato Coupe is estimated to sell for AU$780,000-AU$890,000. It represents just one of 52 built, and one of 27 in right-hand drive with a manual transmission.

An incredibly limited 2019 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Shooting Brake bears a pre-auction estimate of AU$1.2 million to AU$1.4 million. Just 99 were produced, this one being #68. It presents in near unique specification, just one of three cars to bear bronze detailing on the front grille and rear. It has just 43 miles from new.
