After a no-expenses-spared restoration, the DB5 sparked a USA, Scandinavian and UK bidding war before finally being sold to a telephone bidder in the UK.

Also breaking the $1 million mark was a 1963 DB4 Series V Convertible, one of only 70 such models produced.
Other results that demonstrate the spectrum of the sale include: a 1966 DB6 Sports Saloon that achieved $317,727; a 1955 DB2/4 3.0 litre Sports Saloon that sold for $153,385; and a 1952 Lagonda 2.6 litre Drophead Coupe, the oldest car at the sale, that realized $102,256.
