First clapping eyes on the DB5 within the Nineteen Sixties, Connery’s acquisition was a current one. His son, Jason, stated Connery had a life-long need to personal a DB5 “for no different purpose than he cherished the automotive.” He added, “I believe in hindsight it did characterize one thing in his life that was distinctive and captured a second in time.”
The Scottish thespian bought the Aston in 2018 and loved it sparingly up till his demise in 2020. Earlier than that, the DB5 spent its life within the UK, the place it was purchased new by a Mr. White on July 7, 1964. Again then, few automobiles may contact the gentleman’s specific in a straight line.
When new, the 4.0-liter inline-six mustered up greater than 280 horsepower and 288 lb-ft of torque. This translated into a reasonably speedy (for the time, a minimum of) 0 to 60 mph dash of eight seconds and a high velocity of 145 mph. Energy is shipped to the rear wheels through a five-speed guide transmission.
