SPYSCAPE, the edutainment company focused on the world of secret intelligence, announced it has acquired James Bond’s storied Aston Martin DB5 for £2 million or $2.6 million.
This is the car Pierce Brosnan drove during the 1995 film GoldenEye. It was most notably the star of a three-minute-long race in the hills above Monaco against villain Xenia Onatopp, played by Famke Janssen. When last sold for $200,000 in 2001, this iconic vehicle entered the Guinness Book of World Records as the most valuable piece of Bond memorabilia ever.
Bond fans worldwide can sign up online at www.spyscape.com/db5 to receive details of an online mission that will offer them a chance to experience driving in the car – either with a professional driver or behind the steering wheel themselves.
“Spying is an important part of our culture in both fact and fiction, and we are thrilled to acquire this iconic part of our cultural universe,” said Ian Oldaker, COO of SPYSCAPE. “We are excited to let spy fans experience this car in person and put themselves in 007’s driving seat.”
