An Aston Martin DB5 once owned by Beatles guitarist George Harrison has fetched £350,000 at auction.

Attracting bids from around the world, the 1964 model Aston was eventually sold by Coys of London, to an anonymous Beatles fan in Houston, Texas, who intends to use the car to raise money for Christian charities.

Chris Routledge, Managing Director at Coys said: “There was a battle royal for this car which went for some £150,000.00 over its estimate.”

The auction also saw a further £4.5 million worth of cars sold. A Mercedes Benz 540 K, once owned by Bernie Eccleston, and expected to sell for £500,000, went for £864,000.

Another Mercedes, a 300 SL Roadster which had been in storage for over twenty years, sold for £343,000 – £100,000 more than expected.

Of the more unique lots was a Cord 810 Phaeton, once owned by Jimmy Page and businessman Duncan Bannatyne. Estimated to go for between £75-100,000, the distinctive convertible eventually sold for £80,000.
