It’s probably the most famous car in the world, driven by Sean Connery as James Bond in both the Goldfinger and Thunderball movies.
It’s the1964 Aston Martin DB5 silver coupe outfitted with gadgets including machine guns in the headlights, a bulletproof shield that pops up out of the trunk, smokescreen capability, and that famous red button for the ejector seat that ejected 007 safely out of the car.
The famous James Bond movie car is on display the rest of this week at Sotheby’s, on York Avenue at 71st Street, before it goes on auction next month in London. It’s a beauty. I had my photo taken next to it,and so can you.
The car is being auctioned by vintage car specialists RM Auctions, and is expected to fetch between $3 and $5 million. But you can look for free.
