A glossy turquoise 1956 Aston Martin with a racing legacy sold for $22,550,000 -- the most a British-made car has ever fetched at auction.

The record price was set at RM Sotheby's classic car auction in Monterey, California Friday. After a bidding war, the Aston Martin DBR1 was claimed by an unidentified buyer who called in a bid over the phone.

It bested the previous record for a British car, set just one year ago, by a 1955 Jaguar D-Type. It sold for $21.8 million.
