Sir Sean Connery’s 007 Aston Martin DB5 sells for more than £2 million at auction

An iconic James Bond car – the Aston Martin DB5 – has been sold at auction for more than £2 million.

The original James Bond – the late Sir Sean Connery – owned the vehicle.

The actor bought the black car in 2017.

He had it resprayed in Snow Shadow Grey to match the Aston Martins used in the films.


Sadly, the car was not customised to have all the guns, ejector seats, and smoke screen jets.

The DB5 first appeared in the 1964 film Goldfinger.

In all, a DB5 appeared eight 007 films.

Sir Sean’s car was auctioned at the Monterey Car Week in California.

A “significant” sum of the knock down price will go to the Sean Connery Philanthropy Fund.

Sir Sean died in 2020 aged 90.
