It’s arguably the most famous car in the world, but the 1964 Aston Martin DB5 driven by Sean Connery as James Bond in the film Goldfinger, is to be joined at RM’s Automobiles of London auction on October 27th by other Bond artifacts – namely a Hiller UH-12 Helicopter piloted by Pussy Galore (Honor Blackman), in the same film, plus a more recent Bond vehicle, a 1998 Jaguar XKR used in the Iceland chase sequence in 2002’s Die Another Day.
This was one of three such cars prepared for filming that featured all-wheel drive and an onboard weapons system and until recently was the property of the Jaguar Heritage Trust.
On a final note, although not directly Bond related, a 1969 Lamborghini Islero, driven by Sir Roger Moore in the film The Man who Haunted Himself, will also be up for auction at RM’s Automobiles of London. For more information on this prestigious event, click on the link below.
