George Harrison's 1965 Aston Martin DB5 Fetches More Than Half a Million Dollars at London Auction
Some people seem to have Midas touch - whatever they touch turns into gold. That is true about ex-Beatle star George Harrison, whose 1965 Aston Martin DB5 changed hands for an astonishing £350,000 or about US$546,000 / €410,000, after a fierce bidding war from fans around the world at the COYS True Greats Auction in London.
The winning bid came from an anonymous Beatle and Aston Martin fan from Houston in Texas who said: "George Harrison would be amazed about all the money his car is going to raise for Christian causes."
