Bond's Aston Martin to be sold
James Bond's specially modified supercar driven in Goldfinger and Thunderball is set to go under-the-hammer.
The silver Aston Martin DB5 coupe will be auctioned on Wednesday at the RM Auctions Automobiles of London event. Auctioneers expect the car to fetch around £3.5 million.
The standard version was released in 1963 and had a top speed of 145 mph (233 kph), but 007's version sported special equipment, including bulletproof shields and retractable machine guns.
It is closely associated with the Sean Connery era in the famous film franchise.
