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.
