The DB5 was essentially the next generation of the very successful DB4 but with so many improvements it was launched as a new model. The same 6 cylinder Tadek Marek engine was increased to 4.0 litres with a resultant power improvement of 40hp to 280hp in standard form or 310 hp as Vantage. A new 5 speed gearbox and much improved braking enhanced the cars driveability and along with many other refinements made this a superb sports car at the time. rnIntroduced in the summer of 1963, only 886 saloon cars and a mere 123 convertibles were built until October 1965, when production was given over to the DB6.
This DB5 left the factory in June 1964 in its original colours of Black Pearl with Grey Connolly but otherwise in standard form. It was originally registered to Major JM Askew from Berwick on Tweed and then to Messrs Singer & James, an architectural and structural metalwork company from Hainault, Essex. During this time it returned to the factory on several occasions for servicing and other works up to September 1968 at which point it had covered 20,000 miles. Its next keeper for over 20 years was a Guy Gibbs from Wawickshire who purchased the car in 1970 and kept it until 1994 when he sold it to one Jason Kay of Jamiroquai! Although the DB5 was MOTd shortly afterwards at just 40,000 miles, it had at some point been painted Fiesta Red and was presumably in very original condition. In order to add the DB5 to his exceptional collection of rare sports cars, Jay Kay immediately embarked on a full restoration utilising the services of Andrew Thorogood Restorations and subsequently our very own marque specialist Ian Mason. The restoration process was completed in 1999 by which time it had been fully re-built with a body off re-paint in Silver Birch and a full engine re-build to Vantage specification, the only exception being the interior trim which was left original but Connollised. Jay Kay continued to have the car maintained by Ian Mason until he sold it in 2005 to the current owner, and although it only gets occasional use, he has continued to maintain it to a high standard.
This beautiful DB5 comes with a good history file with full restoration detail and has covered just 8,000 miles since re-build.
