One of the most iconic cars of all time, the Aston Martin DB5 is going up for sale at auction at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. This particular 1965 model has been featured in the famous opening chase scene of GoldenEye where Bond races arch villainess Xenia Onatopp in her Ferrari through the hills above Monaco.
“The DB5 is one of the most recognizable and desirable British classic cars in the world – it is also the ultimate Bond car.” commented Sholto Gilbertson, Bonhams Motor Cars Department Director. “Every fan remembers Pierce Brosnan tearing through the hills in this car, and it must be up there as one of the most thrilling Bond car chases in history. This Aston Martin is something very special indeed.”
The car will be sold at the Bonhams Goodwood Festival of Speed Sale on 13 July and it has an estimate of £1,200,000-1,600,000 for it ($1.6 million – $2.1 million). Any takers for this valuable piece of Bond memorabilia?
