Paul McCartney‘s 1964 Aston Martin DB5 recently fetched $495,000 USD at RM Auctions’ Battersea Evolution event in London, a price just above its pre-sale estimate. The car is reportedly the first Aston Martin that McCartney owned and was bought brand new in 1964 — right before the Beatles star went on tour that year — staying with him for six years and amassing 40,000 miles during that period. Featuring a 280 horsepower engine, the Sierra Blue coupe also includes a Motorola radio, Philips Auto-Mignon record player, and a black interior that once showcased a stitched music note pattern. Despite the lofty price tag of McCartney’s Aston however, bandmate George Harrison‘s own platinum DB5 sold at Coy’s last year for a hair above $496,000, and the 1964 Aston of James Bond fame makes both price tags pale in comparison — the car sold for $4.6 million USD a few years back.
