A number of cars that starred in the most recent instalment of the Bond movie franchise, No Time To Die, are going under the hammer.
British auction house, Christie’s, is honouring the 60th anniversary of the Bond movie franchise with a special 007-themed auction.
Jaguar, Aston Martin, Land Rover, and Range Rover cars that starred in No Time To Die blockbuster are among the two-part charity sale scheduled for September 2022.
One of the more expensive items is a Land Rover Defender which was used for an all-terrain chase sequence.
As the vehicle is a pre-production build and modified for stunts, it cannot be registered. Its estimated selling price is between $AU515,000 and $AU860,000.
A Jaguar XF which starred in the pre-credit sequence has an estimated starting price of $AU85,000, while a Range Rover Sport SVR which was involved in a chase scene is expected to go under the hammer for between $US143,000 and $US214,000.
Other cars up for auction include an Aston Martin DB5 replica which contains damage from the opening chase scene. Bidding for that model is expected to start from an eye-watering $AU2.5 million, while a V8 Aston Martin Vantage is anticipated to sell for about $AU1.2million.
A total of 25 vehicles are being auctioned during an invitation-only event on 28 September 2022. Online bidding commences on 15 September 2022. All proceeds from the 007-themed auction will be going to charity, the firm said.
