James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 is going under the hammer and is set to fetch £2million – but there’s a catch | The Sun

JAMES Bond fans have the chance to buy his most famous film car at auction this week – the Aston Martin DB5.

This car was used in the latest Bond flick No Time to Die and is expected to fetch as much as £2million at the Christie's event.

The catch is, it's a replica DB5 built specifically for the stunt drivers in the film.

That means that while it looks like a DB5, it isn't the real thing and actually features a modern engine and gearbox.

The stunt car also has special rallycross suspension and brakes and still has the knocks and scrapes on its bodywork from the film.

It isn't even possible to legally drive it on the road and its stripped out interior isn't as luxurious and comfortable as the original DB5's.

Still, that won't worry collectors, who are getting one of the greatest pieces of James Bond memorabilia of all time.

The stunt DB5 has a carbon fibre body and a custom space-frame chassis, plus working gadgets used in the film.

Those include the (fake) guns that pop out from the headlights and the rear smoke-screen feature seen in the film.

The car is being sold by Aston Martin and the proceeds of the sale will be split between various different charities.
