James Bond’s legendary Aston Martin DB5 was auctioned for more than £1 million. The classic Bond car, which featured in Thunderball and Goldfinger, sold for £1,171,796 in Phoenix, Arizona. The car had last been sold in 1970 for £5,000. A tuxedoed auctioneer drove the DB5 onto a dimmed stage before demonstrating the car’s gadgets, including bullet shield, tyre slashers, oil-slick ejector and Browning machine guns.
