Inaugural Keno Brothers Automotive Event Includes 40 Vehicles of Provenance Including Rare Aston Martin Collectibles
NEW YORK – October 23, 2015 – Loyal James Bond fans will have more to view in November than just the newest 007 film, as the Keno Brothers present their Rolling Sculpture Fine Automobile Auction onNovember 18-19, 2015 at Skylight Clarkson sq., in Soho, New York City, including two of the most stunning and recognizable Aston Martin vehicles – the 1965 Aston Martin DB5 and 1966 Aston Martin DB6 Vantage – within the Auction’s collection of 40 significant vehicles. Both cars can be viewed at www.kenobrothers.com and are among the first to be “unlocked” within the online catalog for interested potential buyers and collectors to review data, photography and details, with new information to be released daily. As cars are marked “Full Data Unlocked” they will be shown with a gold band and include videos, significant history, market trends and designer views.
Underscoring both the significance and provenance of the entire Rolling Sculpture collection, and regardless of any extra attention the affiliation with 007 and the films may have generated for the Aston Martin, it is irrefutable that the DB5 was, and continues to be, recognized as a splendid, masterful piece of automotive design. “While the car was conceived well before the producers of the 1964 film “Goldfinger” ever thought to put it in the film, it is fascinating that the final design turned out to be every bit as unique and enigmatic as 007 himself – a highly-sophisticated and polished gentleman, who conceals his efficiently brutal abilities under his skin,” said Leslie Keno, Co-CEO and Founder of Keno Brothers Fine Automobile Auctions.
According to Keno Brother, Leigh, this particular 1965 DB5/1990/L, with its sage exterior and tan interior, holds engine no. 400/1099 produced and designed by Carrozzeria Touring, and has an estimate of $950,000 – $1.6M USD.
Chassis DB6/2634/L of the offered and fully restored 1966 Aston Martin Vantage, also unlocked today, has a silver exterior and black interior, is in full running condition with a documented service history, as well as its personal historic inclusion within a James Bond photo shoot for Vanity Fair magazine. Estimate: $600,000 – $725,000.
Examples of ‘full data unlocked’ within the online catalog include:
- 1969 Lamborghini Miura
- 1969 Ferrari 365 GTB NART Competizione
