George Harrison's 1965 DB5 sells for £350k

A 1965 Aston martin DB5, which once belonged to Beatles guitarist George Harrison, has sold for £350,000 at an auction in London.

The lot attracted "fierce" bidding from a number of interested parties across the globe.

Originally built in 1964, the DB5/1986/R was first supplied to Harrison by Brydor Cars of Brooklands, in Surrey.

The DB5 was one of many rare cars put under the hammer at the COYS True Greats Auction, which was held at the Royal Horticultural Halls in Westminster.

Chris Routledge, managing director at car auction house COYS, said: "There was a battle royal for this car which went for some £150,000 over its estimate."

In total, the auction saw the full collection sell separately for some £4.5 million.

Mr Routledge added: "It was a fantastic sale with dealers and collectors from all over the world participating.

"There is also no doubt that many people who in the past invested in stock and shares are now looking to classic cars as a good investment for the future."
