Daniel Craig’s 2014 Aston Martin Vanquish Centenary Edition is crossing the auction block.
Offered by Christie’s, all sale proceeds from the auction will benefit The Opportunity Network, and the sports car is expected to fetch between $400,000 to $600,000. The Centenary Edition Vanquish was limited to 100 units and features a unique graduated paint finish, along with sterling silver Aston Martin wings with tailored “trans flux” enamel. There are, of course, individually numbered sterling silver plaques, with Craig’s Vanquish numbered a fitting 007.
The Vanquish got a few more bespoke features after Aston Martin’s chief creative officer, Marek Reichman, sat down with Daniel Craig in the design studio at Aston Martin headquarters. The unique midnight blue exterior is matched by a deep blue, hand-stitched leather interior. There is also a fitted blue leather box of accessories, including Bang & Olufsen earphones in a leather pouch, solid silver Aston Martin cufflinks, a silver Rollerball pen, and a silver polishing cloth.
The car will cross the auction block in New York on April 20, as part of Christie’s annual decorative arts masterpiece sale called “The Exceptional Sale.”
