Bond's Aston Martin model on sale

A gold-plated Aston Martin model specially created to mark 50 years since James Bond movie Goldfinger was released is going up for auction.

The unique third scale replica has been commissioned by EON Productions, the company behind the Bond films. The money raised by the model's sale will go to children's charity the NSPCC.

The replica Aston Martin DB5, driven by Sean Connery in the 1964 film, is signed by the movie's production designer Sir Ken Adam who designed the vehicle's modifications.

The auction is set to fetch somewhere between £40,000 to £60,000. Bidding will start on the website of auction house Christies on September 8 and will close on September 17 to coincide with the 50-year anniversary of Goldfinger's world premiere.

The winner of the auction will also receive a one-off Goldfinger Seamaster aqua Terra wristwatch made by Omega to celebrate the anniversary. The watches have been ever-present in every Bond film since 1995.
