If you are both a car fan and a James Bond fan, and saw the “Quantum of Solace” movie, you likely salivated over the Quantum Silver 2008 Aston Martin DBS that Bond drove. You are not alone in this drooling effect, we did it too. Well, now you can own a piece of history – well, a one-of-seven piece of history – by buying this famous 2008 DBS at auction.
Christies auction house is auctioning off one of the seven 2008 Aston Martin DBSs used in the “Quantum of Solace” film. This model is draped in deep silver paint and boasts black leather interior. From the looks of it in the auction catalog, the car looks to be in fantastic shape, but there is no information on what scenes this particular chassis was used in.
This beast is not only famous, but it’s fast too. With its 5.9-liter V-12 engine that pumps out 510 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, this beast sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in only 4.3 seconds. The 6-speed manual gearbox allows you to rip through the gears at will – no fancy-pants automatic transmission in this sports car.
This 2008 DBS is anticipated to fetch between $160,000 and $230,000, which is about $3,000 to $73,000 more than your everyday 2008 DS is valued at, per Kelly Blue Book. If you can get in it for close to the bottom, you’ve got yourself a great deal. Unfortunately, Christies does not list the actual mileage of the vehicle, but we anticipate that it is extremely low for the year.
The auction kicks off on Friday, October 5th at 8:30 p.m.
