Here Is Your Chance To Play 007: The Aston Martin DB5
James Bond lives the dream. Fast cars, gorgeous women, and badass weapons. Now, it’s your turn to play 007, if you have about $5 million lying around.
For the first time in 40 years, the original classic, sexy Aston Martin DB5 will be revealed to the public and auctioned off at the Midsummer Classic Automotive Event in London, according to MSNBC.
Since 1969, the car has been kept hidden by its current owner, Jerry Lee, the owner of WBEB-FM in Philadelphia, who bought it from the Aston Martin Lagonda factory for a measly $12,000.
Featured in Goldfinger and Thunderball, the DB5 remains the only surviving vehicle of the two driven by the first 007, Sean Connery. That honor has earned it the title of the “world’s most famous car,” given by the car auctioneers at RM auctions.
This beast will still be equipped with machine guns, a bulletproof shield, revolving number plates, a tracking device, a removable roof panel, an oil slick sprayer, a nail spreader, and a smoke screen. Most of these gadgets will work, but before you plan on going all Grand Theft Auto with this baby, the bad news is the machine guns will not be functional. Q could only do so much.
