James Bond’s Aston Martin up for grabs

Cars have been an integral part of the James Bond sagas. There is probably no technological contraption that hasn’t been tried on the cars featuring in the spy movies. They have had bulletproof bodies to escape enemy attacks unscathed, hidden missile launchers to blast the enemy into shreds, inflatable devices to keep the cars afloat in water, and what not. The fictional M12 secret agent has had his fair share of cars/boats/planes/etc.
The imagination and hardwork of those behind these interesting creations definitely paid off, as the cars of the movies tantalized the many fans. While watching the James Bond movies they would wish, that what if they owned one of these fabulous cars. Well, their wish can now come true. Those few lucky ones with the big bucks can own a 1964 Aston Martin DB4, which was used in the production of the Sean Connery starrer 1964 classic, Goldfinger. this car was originally made for the publishing moghul Max Aitken.
Though the car was not actually used in the movie, it was used as a model for making the add ons. The auction will be carried out by the famous auction house Bonhams on May22 and is expected to earn about £40–60,000 ($59–89,000).  It is part of Bonhams’ Aston Martin car sale, the only auction in the world devoted to models and memorabilia connected with the sportscar company.
