Accordingly, the DB5 continues to be one of the world’s most iconic and recognizable cars, and took center stage of Aston Martin’s presence at the Goodwood Revival festival in Sussex in this month of September alongside the latest addition to the marque’s revered DB bloodline, the world’s first Super Tourer, DB12.
Aston Martin’s Executive Chairman, Lawrence Stroll revealed that the “David Brown era gave us so many great Aston Martin sports cars but none more recognizable, revered, and desired as the DB5, which laid the foundations of our identity as a British luxury brand synonymous with style, performance, and exclusivity.
He said further: “It is only right that, as it turns 60, we take a moment to look back and reflect on this car’s incredible role in our storied 110-year heritage. We’re incredibly proud that the DB lineage continues today with the critically acclaimed DB12, which like those came before it, is a celebration of all we love about British hand built sports cars, with a new injection of the latest technology and highest levels of performance.”
