Once used by James Bond in his action, the gadget-filled Aston Martin DB5 is a very iconic automobile indeed. In fact, it’s one of the most desirable movie cars of all time.
If you’re among those who have been dreaming to own the Bond memorabilia, then this good news is for you, a fine example of the legendary vehicle is looking for a new owner.
This particular model, however, isn’t the one Sean Connery used in Goldfinger movie. Instead, it’s the superstar of the 1995 flick Goldeneye, the 1965 model drove by Pierce Brosnan when chasing a Ferrari F355 GTS on the hills above Monaco.
The car went to promote the Goldeneye after its making and the Aston Martin DB7 during its launch. A few years later, in 2001, it was auctioned by Bonhams and won by businessman Max Reid after putting forward a final bid of £149,828 or about $200,000. That amount of money was big at that time, especially for a classic James Bond vehicle that every fan wants to have.
Today the DB5’s value has gone up so high that Bonhams expects it to fetch £1.2 – £1.6 or $1.6 – $2.1 million. The “special” car will be going under the hammer at the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed auction on July 13.
