007 Car Sells For $4.5m Plus Bonus

The 1964 Aston Martin DB5 car driven by Sean Connery in the James Bond movies  Goldfinger and Thunderball has sold at auction in London, England for $4.5 million

James Bond's Aston Martin DB5

It still has its original “Q Branch” gadgets and they still work-of sorts. Live bullets were never on the machine gun menu.

But the new owner, American business man Harry Yeaggy, also gets an extra bonus for his $4.5m. He receives a seven night stay for ten nights for ten guests at the re-launched ‘GoldenEye Resort’ in Jamaica, where Ian Flemming wrote all 14 James Bond novels. (We are told that Pussy Galore is not at the resort….errrr…..should I re-phrase that???)

The car’s previous owner purchased the car from the Aston Martin Lagonda factory in 1969 for just $12,000.
