An Aston Martin DB5 that was ordered by Beatles guitarist George Harrison is up for auction in London on Tuesday.

Coys has consigned chassis DB5/1896/R, the 1964 DB5 that was supplied new by Brydor Cars of Brooklands to Harrison, for its 7 December sale at the Royal Horticultural Halls in Westminster.

Coys' Chris Routledge said: "We are offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire not only one of the most collectible examples of the marque, but one that has been owned by arguably one of the world’s most influential musicians."

"It was delivered to him personally in 1965 at his Kinfauns estate in Esher," added Routledge, who recently reunited the Newport Pagnell car (above) with Pattie Boyd – the Beatle star’s wife when he owned the Aston. It’s expected to sell for £225-260,000.
