If you require an Aston Martin DB5 for a very particular purpose—namely, outgunning a Ferrari F355 driven by a ludicrously named fictional villain on the hills above Monaco, in, um, 1995—then you’re in luck!

Because this is the actual Aston Martin DB5 driven by Pierce Brosnan’s James Bond in 1995’s rather good GoldenEye.

It’s being offered up for auction at Bonhams’ Goodwood sale (of course) and benefits from a life spent on display. It’s served time at both the National Motor Museum and the Bond in Motion exhibition.

It’s in the spec you want, naturally. Built in 1965, it gets a 4.0-liter straight-six underneath, 282hp, silver paint, and black leather.

Or M&Ms. The choices are limitless.

Thanks to its actual Bond provenance, this DB5 is going to be a pricey buy: Bonhams reckons on between £1.2m and £1.6m (P84 million to P112 million) when it goes up for auction at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July. Which makes it tremendously expensive.
