p2pnet view Cool:- Want to buy a DB5 equipped with machine guns, bullet-proof shield, revolving number plates, smoke screen and oil slick squirters?
Now’s your chance.
If you have around £4,000,000 ($CA6,152,907 — and 11 cents) going spare, that is.
It’s the Aston Martin from the James Bond Goldfinger flick. And it’s expected to clock up that much at auction, says the Telegraph.
“The DB5 was originally loaned to EON Productions for the filming of the two Bond movies, and returned to the Aston Martin Lagonda factory after its subsequent promotional tour”, says the Auto Channel.
Then Jerry Lee, an American radio broadcaster based in Philadelphia, “convinced the factory to sell FMP 7B to him for $12,000 in 1969, thereby becoming its first and only ex-factory owner”, says the post, adding:
“It has remained in his possession and has rarely been seen publicly over the past 40+ years.
“Mr. Lee plans to use the proceeds from the sale of FMP 7B to further the charitable work of The Jerry Lee Foundation, a multi-national initiative dedicated to solving social problems associated with poverty, with an emphasis on crime prevention. The Foundation supports programs at the University of Pennsylvania and Cambridge University (UK), as well as in Australia, Norway and Washington, DC. It is also responsible for the establishment of the Stockholm Prize in Criminology, for which Mr. Lee received a Swedish knighthood in 2008.”
