James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 expected to fetch $5.1 million at auction


Ever since the James Bond movies have hit the screens, men have tried to impersonate this reel secret agent. Alas, not everyone has the style to flaunt the James Bond attitude. But never underestimate the power of money, honey. If you have the moolah, you can actually flaunt your James Bond attitude in a set of wheels driven by the 007 agents in one of his flicks! Yes, for the lucky rich James Bond fans, the sole remaining Aston Martin DB5, which starred alongside Sean Connery in Thunderball and Goldfinger, is all set to go under the hammer at an exclusive auction slated to be held by RM Auctions in London on October 27. And if you bid just high enough, you might go home in your very own 007 car! The car is one of two built for James Bond’s on-screen appearances and features the full suite of modifications fit for the secret agent.

It even comes with the famous number plate FMP 7B. Promising to give you the ride of your life, the DB5 has machine guns, a bullet-proof shield, revolving number plates, an oil slick sprayer, and, of course, a passenger ejector seat.
The car was bought in 1969 from the factory by American radio broadcaster Jerry Lee for $12,000 and has remained in his collection ever since. The car is expected to fetch a whopping £3.5million ($5.1million) at the upcoming auction. All proceeds from the sale of this car will be donated to The Jerry Lee Foundation.
So, all you wannabe James Bonds, get ready to bid for this beauty.
