Christmas is less than 100 days away and if you’re not sure what to get your petrolhead dad, then look no further: the Aston Martin used in the latest James Bond movie is going up for auction.
Used in the No Time to Die car chase scene filmed in the southern Italian hilltop town of Matera, the vehicle features rotating guns in the headlights and signs of bullet damage across the body – so expect some funny looks if using it to do your weekly food shop.
The sale of the stunt car is being handled by Christie’s as part of the auction house’s collection celebrating 60 years of James Bond.
Auction house Christie’s explains how the vehicle is sold as a ‘non-runner collector’s item and was built to be used by trained professional stunt drivers in a controlled environment for filming only and is not sold as a means of transport’.
If you are looking to drive it, Christie’s suggests seeking professional advice as to whether it would be possible to convert the vehicle to become roadworthy.
Other items in the live auction include costumes worn by Ana de Armas and Daniel Craig in No Time to Die, stunt vehicles from across the James Bond franchise, and a five-night stay at the Fleming Villa on Jamaica's Goldeneye estate.
Bond fans who want to start bidding can jump the gun on the online auction where bidding is currently open and runs until October 5, 2022.
Items in the online auction include signed scripts, suits worn by Daniel Craig, vintage movie posters, and a complete set of Ian Fleming books.
