James Bond’s 1965 Aston Martin DB5 sold for $6.4M
Some lucky buyer can live out their spy fantasy in style. James Bond’s 1965 Aston Martin DB5 just sold at auction for $6.4 million on Thursday night. It is one of the most famous movie cars of all times. The car comes with all Bond gadgets you’d expect including machine guns in each fender and a rare bulletproof screen. It also has revolving license plates, wheel-hub mounted tire shedders and a passenger-seat ejection seat. The sports car is equipped with 14 gadgets like smoke machines and a Browning.30 Calibre machine gun. It’s one of the three surviving models commissioned by Eon Productions for the early Bond films. An auction company named RM Sotheby’s sold the luxury sports car fitted with all the M16Q Branch gadgets during the Pebble Beach car week. This car was used to promote the 1965 Bond film, “Thunderball” but did not end up on the screen.
