“The Ohio collector Harry Yeaggy brought home the top prize from Thursday’s RM Auctions Automobiles of London sale, a 1964 Aston Martin DB5 James Bond film car from “Goldfinger” and “Thunderball.”
The car sold for £2,600,000. With the addition of auction fees, the final figure is expected to be over $4,600,00. The car is said to have been one of two used for driving scenes in the movies with the actor Sean Connery behind the wheel as Bond.
Four were built in total and two were used for promotional purposes. The other car used in the films was reported stolen from a Boca Raton airport hangar in 1997. It has not been seen since.”
