Bond’s Aston Martin up for grabs
London: The iconic Aston Martin used in two James Bond movies is set to go under the hammer in London and is expected to fetch over 3 million pounds.
The 1964 DB5, driven by Sean Connery in ‘Goldfinger’ and ‘Thunderball’, is being sold by American DJ Jerry Lee, its first and only owner, Sky News reports.
Its gadgets included a bulletproof shield and revolving number plates.
Lee, who paid just over 8,000 pounds when he bought it in 1969, is hoping to raise around 3.5million pounds and plans to put the money into his charitable foundation.
"The James Bond car has brought me much enjoyment for some 40 years," he said.
"Even as I sell it ... the car will continue to give me great pleasure as it furthers the mission of the foundation to do good around the world," he added.
The car, one of two original 007 cars, is part of the annual RM`s Automobiles of London sale.
