James Bond Aston sells for 2.6 million

The most famous of all James Bond cars has sold at auction for 2.6 million pounds, 900,000 less than pre-sale estimates of 3.5 million.

The star of Goldfinger and Thunderball, alongside Sean Connery, the 1964 Bond DB5 is one of the most iconic of all movie cars thanks to its unusual list of optional extras.

The handy ejector seat, machine guns and rotating numberplate have all helped to make the car famous.

While you might be able to only dream of owning a car such as the 007 Aston, we have plenty of pictures of the car which you can drool over for free in our gallery.
