For Sale: The James Bond Aston Martin DB5

James Bond Aston Martin

Martin.  Aston Martin.  The original James Bond Aston Martin DB5, with all of its tricks in tow, will be sold at the RM Auctions event in London on October 27th.  This 1964 Aston Martin DB5 was driven by everyone’s favorite British spy in the films Goldfinger and Thunderball, stacked with spy gadgets and weaponry by the venerable Q.  James Bond’s Aston Martin features hidden machine gun turrets, license plates with rotating numbers, a retractable bullet shield, a tracking device, an oil slick sprayer, a treadle spreader and a smoke screen device.  Sure, those guns won’t fire real bullets, but the devices can be queued by switches in the DB5′s arm rest.  From all the luxury cars we’ve covered here on TheCoolist, we can’t say we’ve ever wanted one as badly as we desire James Bond’s very own 1964 Aston Martin DB5.  [rm auctions via luxist]
