A 1964 Aston Martin DB5 once owned by Sir Paul McCartney was sold for £344,400 ($550,282) at RM Auctions' London Battersea event on Wednesday.

The iconic car, bearing the license plate number "64 MAC," was ordered by the singer soon after The Beatles' appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show and the filming of "Hard Day's Night."

Painted Sierra Blue and complete with a black leather interior, the ride most associated with James Bond stayed in McCartney's possession until about 1970, according to RM Auctions. Since then, it has had four owners, including the latest buyer.
