Oh the humanity!
There are some cars in the world that we just cannot stand to see get hurt as if they are living, breathing beings of automotive beauty. The Aston Martin DB5 is one such vehicle. Its classic Aston Martin design and notoriety as a James Bond car have made it a very sought-after and highly-valued automobile.
That’s why this crash that occurred near the Manchester airport in the U.K. was so horrifyingly awful to see.
A father and his four-year-old son were out driving the Aston Martin DB5 when an accident occurred with a Vauxhall Astra. The Aston Martin was heavily damaged and resulted in both passengers being treated for injuries at the hospital.
The iconic Aston Martin DB5 was valued at approximately £1 million, making this quite a costly accident that insurance companies will just love handling.
Thankfully there were no serious injuries that resulted from the crash, however the loss of an Aston Martin DB5 stings quite badly for us automotive enthusiasts.
