The Aston Martin classic Bond appeared with Daniel Craig in his latest movie as the famous spy.

The durably modified 4X4 Land Rover is one of only seven of the original ten, with three not surviving an epic snowy chase between the master spy and Specter’s henchmen.

Tim Schofield, Head of Bonhams Motor Cars UK, said: “Bonhams has a long history of successfully selling cars from James Bond films, so we are excited to introduce two final stars from the series.

“Both provide a golden opportunity to get an original ‘James Bond’ movie car and in the case of DBS, the ‘real 007 Aston Martin’.”

The Aston movie, estimated to cost £500,000, was shot in scenes shot on location in Scotland and 2021’s RAF Brize Norton.

The company’s flagship Grand Tourer, it had to be loaned to Eon Productions by its first and only owner as Aston Martin could not provide one for production.

The film company held the car for two years for filming and production, traveling 800 miles out of the 850 miles.

The high-end engine will be delivered with a framed Aston Martin certificate thanking the seller for loaning them the car.

The car also comes with specialized plates indicating its use as a bond car, as well as an engine plate showing the final inspection of the car performed by Daniel Craig.

With its 715-hp V12, it goes from 0-60 in just over three seconds and can reach speeds of up to 211 mph.

Prices for the new model start at £225,000.

A modified Land Rover SVX “Specter” 4×4 Utility was used by Specter followers in the 2015 Bond installation, and is set to fetch up to £200,000.

The snow chase saw Daniel Craig attempt to rescue Bond girl Madeleine Swan (Léa Seydoux) in a plane, while heavy Land Rover henchmen chase after him.

The car has been extensively modified by off-road racing specialist Bowler Motorsport.

This included standard-spec shock absorbers, new suspension, a full roll cage, LED roof lights, a rope bonnet, and a WARN electric winch along with supportive front seats for an exciting ride.

Both cars will go on sale at the Goodwood Festival of Speed ​​on Friday.
