Bond's Aston Martin sold for 3 million euros


The Aston Martin DB5 driven by Sean Connery as James Bond in ‘Goldfinger’ was sold at an auction in London on Wednesday for three million euros.

US broadcaster Jerry Lee allowed the silver coupe to go under the hammer to raise money for charity.

It was snapped up by American businessman and car collector Harry Yeaggy.

“I thought about (winning the auction) but I never thought I’d come to it. I have other cars and this is the most famous. It would not be the best car in the world, but it is the most recognised,” Yeaggy said.

007’s car comes with the full range of operational “Q-Branch” gadgets including an ejector seat, machine guns, a bullet-proof shield and a smoke screen.

This particular DB5 also starred alongside Connery in Thunderball.
