Introduced in July 1963, the DB5 represented a further evolution of the preceding DB4 series rather than the beginning of an entirely new model line. The major change was the adoption of a 4.0-liter version of the (previously) 3.7-litre six-cylinder engine, this enlarged unit having been seen first in the Lagonda Rapide of 1961. Equipped with three SU carburetors the '400' engine produced 282bhp at 5,500rpm and was mated to a four-speed/overdrive gearbox, a 'proper' ZF five-speed unit being standardized later. Outwardly there was little to distinguish the DB5 from the final Series 5 DB4 apart from twin fuel filler caps, though these had already appeared on some cars. Beneath the skin, however, there were numerous improvements including alternator electrics, Girling disc brakes instead of Dunlops, Sundym glass, electric windows, and an oil pressure gauge as standard equipment.

 

 

Delivered new to the USA in 1964 and titled in Pennsylvania, this original left-hand drive DB5 was owned from 1979 by William S Jackson, of Hummelstown, PA. The car was originally finished in Fiesta Red with black leather interior and fitted with an 'MPH' speedometer, the odometer of which currently records a total of 61,163 miles. Returned from the USA to Europe in 2009, in need of total restoration and sold at Bonhams Monaco 2010 auction.
