In the UK, a Christie’s charity auction was held, within which the iconic Aston Martin DB5 sports car, driven by James Bond in the movie No Time to Die, was put up for auction. During filming, the car was seriously damaged. However, this did not prevent the unnamed buyer from paying $3.2 million for the car (approximately 184 million rubles at the current exchange rate). Especially for the filming of the film, the car underwent a serious tuning

Eight identical Aston Martin DB5s were built for the filming of the film. Each car was equipped with an armored windshield, rotating license plates, a machine gun model, and retractable rams in the front and rear of the body. A safety cage, a remote control for gadgets and a copy of the radar appeared in the cabin.

The sports car is powered by a 4.0-liter V6 petrol engine that produces 290 horsepower. The unit is equipped with a five-speed manual transmission. In addition, the car was equipped with rack and pinion steering and steel disc brakes.

During filming, the sports car was seriously damaged. Despite this, the new owner paid $3.2 million (about 184 million rubles at the current exchange rate) for the wrecked Aston Martin.

At the end of August, a 1964 Aston Martin DB5 owned by Sean Connery was auctioned off. The famous film actor drove a sports car in one of the parts of the James Bond spy saga.
