It is estimated it will be sold for between £500,000 and £600,000.

The car is best known for being used by 007 to dispose of Goldfinger's henchmen in the 1964 film Goldfinger.

The auctioneer, Coys, said the vehicle boasts 'both beauty and refine high performance' and described the lot as a 'wonderful proposition for the serious Bond fan'.

Part of the desctiption reads: "To many observers the Aston Martin DB5 is the epitome of the company’s models during the David Brown era, boasting both beauty and refined high performance.

"It is also perhaps the best known Aston Martin in the world, having starred in the James Bond films Goldfinger and Thunderball, complete with machine guns and other gadgetry."

Fawaz Al Hasawi, businessmen and former owner of Nottingham Forrest, purchased the car in the late 90's until it was sold to the current owner in 2015. The keen James Bond enthusiast then began to recreate the famous motor.
