    James Bond Aston Martin sells at auction for record-breaking £5.26 million

    An Aston Martin with retractable machine guns, tyre slashers and a revolving licence plate has sold for £5.26 million, making it the most expensive James Bond car ever sold at auction.The DB5, based on the car in Goldfinger and built as a promotional model for Bond producers, fetched £5.26 million ($6.39 million) this week in Monterey, California.It was never used in the 1964 blockbuster, meaning its engine and gadgets were in better condition than the one driven by Sir Sean Connery for the film.That model set the Bond car record when it sold for £2.9 million in London nine years ago, but was trumped by its twin on Thursday.The DB5 was the subject of a four-and-a-half-minute competition between six parties, eventually selling to an unnamed bidder in the room, The Times reported.The sleek silver car, with chassis number DB5/2008/R, was described by RM Sotheby’s as the “world’s most famous car” and the Bond vehicle with the most gadgets. The auction house said the Aston Martin, which can legally be driven on the roads, was “a highly desirable acquisition for the serious marque collector . . . or secret agent.”In a short video shared by Sotheby’s in the run-up to the auction, the car was shown to have bulletproof windows, a homing device and tracking display, a smoke screen, oil slick, a rear bulletproof screen and an ejector seat.> NEWS: "The Most Famous Car in the World" is coming to RMMonterey! 1 of 3 surviving JamesBond 007 DB5’s equipped with Q-specified gadgets & used for promotion of Thunderball will star at An Evening with @astonmartin on 15 Aug. Complete your mission: https://t.co/ADwaxDVGvO pic.twitter.com/zPCJfU9eJQ> > — RM Sotheby's (@rmsothebys) > > June 12, 2019Some of the gadgets were said to still work, although the machine guns can only produce a bang.The gadgets were designed by the late John Stears, the film’s special effects technician, after he visited Aston Martin’s Newport Pagnell plant in 1963.Two modified cars were built to be used in Goldfinger; one for stunt driving and chase sequences and the other for interior shots and close-ups. The model also had a telephone for communication with MI6 and a compartment under the driver’s seat for weapons.The success of Goldfinger led to a surge in Aston Martin sales. Eon Productions modified two more DB5 saloons and shipped them to the United States to promote Thunderball in 1965.Sir Sean, 88, who played Bond in seven films, described the cars as “increasingly iconic”.“In fact, I bought a very fine DB5 myself relatively recently,” he added.

    Cillian Murphy rules himself out of playing James Bond as he thinks next 007 'should be a woman'

    Cillian Murphy has shut down claims that he could be the next James Bond because he thinks the iconic role should go to a woman.The Peaky Binders star, who plays Tommy Shelby in the BBC show, was hotly tipped to take over Daniel Craig’s spot as the new 007, joining a list of rumoured contenders which also includes James Norton and Richard Madden.But, speaking to The Guardian, the 43-year-old admitted he has other ideas. He said: “The thing about it is, if you say anything about Bond it becomes the headline, right?“There’s two things I’ll say about that. Firstly, there’s a whole other industry which is completely separate from the film side of things, and that’s the bookies. He added: “The second thing I’d say is that I think it should be a woman, which rules me out.”The English actress Lashana Lynch has reportedly been cast as a new 007, but her character will appear alongside Craig’s Bond, having taken over his code name, rather than replace him.[[gallery-0]] ​Previous contenders rumoured to be in the running to play the iconic super-spy include Idris Elba and Tom Hiddleston.Filming for the 25th Bond film, which is using the working title Shatterhand, has so far taken place on location in Jamaica, Norway and Italy, and at Pinewood Studios in the UK.Earlier this year, Craig was forced to spend two weeks recovering from an ankle injury sustained while filming. Despite this, the film is still slated for release in April 2020.The 25th Bond film will be directed by Cary Fukunaga and will be Craig's fifth and final outing as the super spy.Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Wright and Rory Kinnear will all return to the series, while Rami Malek will make his Bond debut as a villain.
