It might be the ultimate three-car garage and it’s made up entirely of Aston Martin DB5s.

The unique collection, comprising Coupé, Convertible and Shooting Brake versions of James Bond’s most famous car, is up for sale at a price of £4m for all three.

Each of the models was built in Vantage spec, with an extra 40bhp over the standard 282bhp straight-six engine, thanks to carburettor and camshaft upgrades.

All three cars will be displayed at next week’s London Concours event, which opens on Tuesday at the Honourable Artillery Company’s HQ in the City of London.

The DB5 Shooting Brake is understood to have been the only factory-built Vantage version, offering extra rear space thanks to its Harold Radford-built bodywork.
