THE Aston Martin DB5 driven by James Bond in GoldenEye is set to go under the hammer for a whopping £1.6 million.

And it will become the most expensive DB5 in the world if it fetches that price.

The car was driven by Pierce Brosnan in the 1995 movie, and was auctioned off in 2001 for just over £157,000.

And its current owner, entrepreneur Max Reid, is now set to make a tenfold profit if it reaches the enormous valuation given by the auction house.

While playing 007, Brosnan raced the classic British sports car around the Monaco hills with Xenia Onatopp, the Ferrari-driving assassin played by Famke Janssen.

The film marked the first time a James Bond actor had driven an Aston Martin DB5 since Sean Connery played the spy in the mid-1960s.

GoldenEye also marked Brosnan’s first appearance as the MI6 agent.

After filming, the 1965 Aston Martin was used by Eon Productions for promoting GoldenEye and the Aston Martin DB7, before being sold in 2001.

Under the bonnet is a 4.0-litre engine which produces 282bhp, giving the DB5 a 0-60mph time of 6.5 seconds and a top speed of around 145mph.

James Bond and the Aston Martin DB5 have been linked since Sean Connery drove one in Goldfinger, in 1964 – that car went up for sale earlier this month for £1million.

The Brosnan DB5 will be on display at Bonhams’ Aston Martin Sale at Englefield House on June 2 ahead of its sale at Goodwood in July.
