ASTON MARTIN DB5
4-seater sports saloon, drophead coupè.
More capacity and more power: 282bhp in standard form and 314bhp with September 1964's Vantage option. Selectaride dampers and automatic available. All but the earliest manuals are five-speeders, courtesy ZF, and of course gearboxes are all-synchromesh. Weight is going up, too.
