New York: A James Bond car, with revolving number plates, machine guns behind tail lights and devices to emit smoke, spread nails and slash tyres of pursuers, has been sold for $6.4 million at a car auction in California, reports said. The Aston Martin DB5 1965 model was modified for James Bond film ‘Thunderball’ (1965) but didn’t appear onscreen and was used for publicity purposes. The buyer of the iconic car, which once belonged to a British politician, at the Monterey Car Festival was not identified, media reports said. Aston Martin made its debut in the popular film franchise some five and a half decades ago as the vehicle of the British spy in ‘Goldfinger’ released in 1964. DB5 was the first Aston Martin used by James Bond. DB5 was an interesting presence in the 2012 Bond film ‘Skyfall’, while V8 made its screen debut in the 1987 film ‘The Living Daylights’. The cars in James Bond movies have always wowed the fans of the film series. These cars that pack enough surprises are an integral part of the Bond films. For every Bond film, Aston Martin makes a new car.
