Just over a week ago we revealed that an auction for Aston Martin’s made $6.8 million, this was no huge surprise as one of the Aston Martin’s being sold appeared in the 1965 classic movie James Bond 007 – Goldfinger.
We are now hearing that another Bond car is for sale, this is Bond’s 1964 Aston Martin DB5, which is regarded by many as the World’s most famous car, this car alone is expected to raise over $5 million when it goes under the hammer in London on October 27th.
This is the first time that this car has been available to the public to buy, therefore I am sure that there will be a few Bond fans who will be interested in getting their hands on this priceless piece of memorabilia.
The car is being sold by the U.S. radio broadcaster Jerry Lee, he currently owns the car after buying it from the Aston Martin Lagonda factory in 1969 for just $12,000, which at the time was a lot of money.
All of the proceeds made will go to the Jerry Lee Foundation, this foundation “is a philanthropy dedicated primarily to reducing crime and enhancing education through research on what works to achieve these goals”, you can find out more about the Jerry Lee foundation here.
