James Bonds’s 1964 Aston Martin DB5
As we mentioned earlier, 1964 Aston Martin DB5, driven by Sean Connery in “Goldfinger”, soon will get new owner. RM Auto Restoration, part of Canadian RM Auction house, has just completed re-commissioning program, returning the car into running condition after its long static storage.
Last sold more than 40 years ago for a paltry $12,000, the DB5, also referred to as the FMP 7B because of its unique number plate, is expected to fetch the princely sum of $5 million on sale at the Automobiles of London event at the Battersea Evolution in London on October, 27th.
The Bond’s DB5 being sold is factory-fitted with gadgets including the machine guns, revolving number plates, oil slick sprayer and smoke. The gadgets are all controlled by toggles and switches hidden in the centre arm-rest.
