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.
