For more than two decades, Bonhams has brought a slew of distinguished vehicles to its Amelia Island auction. Located at the Fernandina Beach Golf Club, it is just a short stroll from the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. Bonhams’ docket is quite varied this year, with some of the finest automobiles ever sold by marques like Aston Martin, Ferrari, Porsche, and Maserati.
James Bond might have made Aston Martin famous outside of car enthusiast circles when he drove a tricked-out DB5 in 1964’s “Goldfinger,” but by then the marque was already well established within the enthusiast realm. The foundation for the DB5’s prominence had already been built by its predecessor, the DB4.
