Having recently seen Paul McCartney’s 1964 Aston Martin DB5 go up for auction, another member of British Rock’n Roll folklore — Robert Plant — will see his old DB5 go up for sale. There is no doubting the Aston Martin DB5’s legendary credentials and this particular model, chassis number 1744/R, found its way into the Led Zeppelin frontman’s hands in the early 1970s.
The car, that was sold by Plant to collectors in 1986, was eventually entrusted to Aston Martin agents and restored to its current top-of-the-line condition. Wrapped in a Dubbonet Russo color scheme and boasting a leather tan interior, this 1965 beauty has been kept by current owner Nicholas Mee & Co., in a controlled environment since 2008. Pricing is only available upon contacting the dealer, but given the iconic stature of Led Zeppelin and the fact that McCartney’s similar model was expected to fetch around $2 million USD, you can bet this stunning restoration will cost a pretty penny. Be sure to check out images of the classic British car in the gallery above.
