Paul McCartney's 1964 Aston Martin DB5 to go on Auction

The Classic Sports Car once owned by the Beatles singer-songwriter Paul McCartney will go on auction on the 2nd of December 2017 – and it could fetch a whopping $2 million at Bonhams, London.

Sir Paul purchased his brand new DB5 after the release of the Beatles successful film 'A Hard Day's Night' in 1964. The singer-songwriter kept the car until around 1970, during which he drove the car about 40,000 miles and made a few personal touches, including a Philips Auto-Mignoncar record player and musical notes rumored to be hidden in the leather interior. Since then, the car has been in multiple different hands and undergone numerous restorations. The car was last publicly sold to a collector who bought the car for £344,000, however, now the car is set to sell for almost 5 times as much in December. The car saw its color change from its original Sierra Blue to Silver and the luxurious interior reworked to dark Red in 2013. The restoration also saw an engine upgrade from a 4.0 to 4.2 liters which gave the car 33 more boost in horsepower.

A Fun Fact: The car carries the value of being the most recognized cinematic James Bond car, first appearing in the James Bond film, Goldfinger.
