DB5 Sports (by Royle and Co)
(1965 / 1989, DBR2 replica)
Underneath this smooth exterior lurks a much modified DB5, chassis number DB5/2082/R. Converted by David Royle and Co Ltd of Durhan, England, the DB5 has had it's original body removed and the chassis shortened to the same as that of a 1957 DBR2, also the engine and gearbox have been moved back. The DBR2 style body has then been added still using the Superleggera system where alloy panels are attached to a tubular frame. This very exciting road car is known as a 'DB5 Sports', believed to be unique and is now living in the USA.
