James Bond’s Aston Martin From Goldfinger To Be Sold At Auction
June 1, 2010
The silver Aston Martin is an iconic car in the film world, complete with all of the tools Q added on to make it one of the coolest vehicles in movie history.
Originally bought in the late 60′s by Jerry Lee for $12,000 USD, the price has gone up considerably in recent years.
As it is in perfect condition, it is expected to fetch as much as £4 million at auction today.
“The car is up and running and all the gadgets still work too. You can use the smoke screen and oil slick discharge, the revolving number plates and activate the bullet-proof shield at the back,” RM Auctions auctioneer, Peter Haynes, said.
“The machine guns obviously don’t work – they never have done – but you can still press a button inside and it moves them into position. The car is road legal and whoever buys it will be able to take it out on the open road or drive it to work if they wanted.”
Who would risk driving a £4 million car in an average day on the road is yet to be seen.
