Rare Aston Martin tipped to sell for £2.5m

Adrian Holliday

An exquisite 1955 Aston Martin DB3S - painted in orange - could be the most expensive British car ever sold.

The tangerine-coloured 3-litre racing car will be up for auction on 17 August and is likely to make £2.5m - perhaps even beating the £2.6m achieved by James Bond's DB5 in 2010. So you'll need deep pockets if interested.
