James Bond's Aston Martin Car from GoldenEye Is Up for Auction



Wine James Bond's car at auction

Ever wanted to be James Bond? Well, now you can...sort of. This July, the 1965 Aston Martin DB5, driven by Pierce Brosnan in GoldenEye, will go to auction. The DB5 has been synonymous with James Bond ever since it was featured in the famous opening chase scene of GoldenEye where Bond dices with arch villainess Xenia Onatopp in her Ferrari through the hills above Monaco. Auction house, Bonhams is estimating that the car will be sold for £1,200,000-1,600,000 (an estimated $1.6M-$2.1M in USD).

Purchased in 2001, the car became the most valuable piece of Bond memorabilia ever sold and has been on display at The National Motor Museum and the Bond in Motion exhibition at Covent Garden.

Sholto Gilbertson, Bonhams Motor Cars Department Director, commented: “The DB5 is one of the most recognizable and desirable British classic cars in the world - it is also the ultimate Bond car. Every fan remembers Pierce Brosnan tearing through the hills in this car, and it must be up there as one of the most thrilling Bond car chases in history. This Aston Martin is something very special indeed.”

The car is currently on display at Bonhams Aston Martin Sale at Englefield House, Reading and will be sold at the Bonhams Goodwood Festival of Speed Sale on July 13th.
