James Bond Movie Car to Go up for Auction

James Bond Movie Car to Go up for Auction

Bond films’ most famous car, 1965 Aston Martin DB5, will go under the hammer later this year as it is set to be auctioned in California on August 15.

The car was ordered by Eon Productions, the company behind Bond films Goldfinger and Thunderball, to promote events in the U.S., but was not actually featured in the films.

The car, already sold in 1969, was bought again for over $2 million in 2016.

It is expected to be sold at the auction for between $4 million and $6 million.

The car includes a Browning .30 calibre machine gun in each fender, tyre slashers on its wheel hubs and a bulletproof rear screen.
