On foot of this month’s auction of Sir Paul McCartney’s 1964 Aston Martin DB5 comes the offer of Robert Plant’s 1965 DB5, which the Led Zeppelin frontman owned until 1986.

You can own McCartney’s for £1.5 million. A (presumably similar) price for the Plantmobile is available from the auctioneer on request.
