This silver Aston Martin DB5 was stolen in broad daylight earlier this year – and now a £1000 reward is being offered to anyone who has information that leads to its safe recovery.

On 18 July 2020, this 1965 example was taken from where it was parked on Hawthorn Lane, a residential street in Wilmslow, Cheshire, UK.

And as if being a silver DB5, similar to 007’s car, wasn’t enough to make it stand out, this one, chassis number, DB5/2058/R, also has a unique, yellow-tinted front foglight as well as ‘Vantage’ badges on its sides.

“This is a highly unusual theft in broad daylight and one we felt is of national significance. Old and young people alike have an affiliation with this classic motor which will forever be synonymous with James Bond,” said Neil Thomas, Director of Investigative Services at AX, which has launched this appeal.
