The last Aston Martin DB5 used in the original James Bond movies will go up for auction at an auction being held in London at the end of October.
The iconic silver sports car comes with all of the usual gadgets, including machine guns, rotating license plates, an oil slick, ejector seat and bulletproof shield. The car was purchased from the Aston Martin factory by Jerry Lee, an American broadcaster. Lee paid $12,000 for the car, a hefty sum in those days, and the vehicle has remained in his collection for 40 years.
RM Auctions, the firm selling the vehicle, expects the Aston to go for roughly $5,000,000, with all proceeds going to the Jerry Lee Foundation, a charity designed to help combat crime and social problems brought on by poverty.
