Last week in Monterey, Ca. the “Original” Aston Martin DB5 Coupe, used in the James Bond movie “Goldfinger” was sold sold for an astonishing $6.38 million.!! The week is a major event in the area. With no less than 4 auction houses selling some of the most exotic cars in the world. And many with exotic prices to match. This car was “The” car used in the filming of the movie, and restored to perfection by one of the 13 authorized Aston Martin restoration companies.
The car has been a resident of a Museum in Tennessee for a bout 35 years. During that time, one of the four cars used in the filming….disappeared from the face of the planet. (Although detectives are now quite certain where the car resides, and are taking steps to recover it). Making each of the three remaining cars…that much more valuable…. The pre-auction estimate was %4-$6 million dollars…so it beat the numbers by a small margin. The Aston was restored to perfection and performed many of it’s tricks on stag while it was being auctioned.
