An article in the Spring 1972 edition of ‘HR Owen Ltd reports…’, an magazine to promote the dealership to their large customer base stated that they had received a number of inquiries following the production of the car although no more were ever made. One can only assume that the cost of conversion was substantial; with an ex-works DBS selling for £5,717, it is believed the Shooting Brake cost around £10,000. The DBS was fitted with the regular triple SU engine and three speed automatic transmission.
The second owner had the car from 1975 but decided to part with the car through the 2012 Bonham’s auction at Aston Martin Works. Against what was a ludicrously low estimate of £50,000 – 70,000, the unique car sold for £337,500 plus premium, taking it close to £400,000.
