James Bond's Aston Martin DBS sells for £241,250

The Aston Martin DBS used in the 2008 James Bond film ‘Quantum of Solace’ sold for £241,250 on Friday evening, with proceeds from the sale going to British children’s charity Barnardo’s.

Unlike the two cars currently on display at the National Motor Museum that still bear battle-scars from filming, the DBS sold at the Christie’s ’50 Years of James Bond’ sale – registration KX08 VLE – is fully roadworthy.

With interest in 007 at an all-time high, the timing was perfect for the Quantum Silver, RHD Aston to realise a price worthy of its silver-screen pedigree. And the new owner can take delight not only in the fact that they now have possession of such a machine – but also that it was all in the name of a good cause.
